Compensation For High School Stabbing Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims involved in stabbings and other violent crimes across Pennsylvania. As an experienced school stabbing victim lawyer, Brian shared his knowledge regarding when victims stabbed on a high school campus could file a lawsuit for compensation. 

"Schools are required to provide protection for both their employees and students on campus. A school can reduce the risk of preventable dangers by implementing security measures, including monitored surveillance cameras and patrolling school resource officers. Additionally, all visitors to a school should have to check in before they can enter the school. It could be held liable if a school fails to provide proper protection and a student is hurt."

"It is possible that a crime could be considered foreseeable if the school district failed to increase security despite knowing of an increase in risk. Bag checks or metal detectors could be put in the school if it has a history of violence. If negligent security is proven to be a factor, victims or their families may be entitled to compensation. Victims are encouraged to speak to an experienced school stabbing victim lawyer to explore their option for filing a civil lawsuit."
