Justice For Victims of Sexual Abuse by Teachers

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits, helping them recover the financial compensation they need and deserve. Laurence has some thoughts to add on the legal rights of students who have been sexually abused by teachers:

Schools have a critical legal and moral obligation to make sure their students are as safe as possible. This includes protecting them from sexual predators, as sadly, these predators often seek out positions in education and other fields that involve working with children.

Our nation’s schools have major problems with employees sexually abusing students. When a teacher or another school employee is arrested on sexual abuse charges, the school should also be investigated to determine if negligence allowed the abuse to happen.

For example, a school could be considered negligent if other employees had failed to report inappropriate behavior or sexual misconduct that they witnessed between a teacher and student. In cases of negligence, teacher sex abuse victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.
