Legal Rights For Student Victims of Sexual Abuse

Sex abuse victim lawyer Brian Kent specializes in representing victims of sexual abuse by people in positions of trust – such as student victims of sex abuse by teachers and other school staff members. Here is Brian with some information on the legal rights of these victims:

When a teacher is charged with sexually abusing a student, it’s important to investigate and determine whether or not the abuse could have been prevented.

Sexual predators often seek out positions as teachers and other school staff members, where they’ll be trusted to work with children. Our schools must be on guard against these predators and must do everything they can to protect their students from abuse.

Some incidents of student sexual abuse only happen because of negligence by the school, such as failing to respond to complaints of inappropriate behavior or sexual misconduct involving the teacher. If negligence was a factor, the victim and their family may have a case for a lawsuit against the school district.

Determining negligence requires legal guidance from an experienced sex abuse victim lawyer. If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse by a school employee, you can learn more about your legal options in a free consultation with one of our lawyers.
