Student Shot and Injured at High School

ABC 15 has reported that a student was shot at Cesar Chavez High School located at 3921 W Baseline Rd, Laveen Village, AZ 85339. 

At about 3 p.m. on Monday, November 29, 2021, a student was shot and injured at the high school. Allegedly a student brought the gun into the school to sell to the victim. The two students made the transaction in one of the bathrooms. However, when the victim was leaving with the purchased gun, the other student realized he had paid using movie prop currency.  The student then followed the victim out of the bathroom, and the student was shot. 

The victim is expected to be alright but was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. He and the other student will both be facing charges.

Legal Recourse for Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan represents victims of violent crime, such as shootings, in civil lawsuits. Kevin has offered to share his advice on the legal options available to victims of gun violence at schools, including their right to file a lawsuit against a negligent school. 

"Schools are responsible for offering their student body and staff a safe and secure learning environment. This is inclusive of preventable crimes, such as shootings and stabbings. They have a legal duty to maintain a level of protection that may involve having an on-site resource officer and installing video surveillance. Failure for the school to provide preventative measures can allow them to be held responsible if a student is injured during a preventable crime."

Victims of shootings on a school campus can file a private civil lawsuit to secure compensation. An experienced school shooting victim lawyer understands how schools may be held liable for failing to provide adequate security. They will work to prove that the crime was foreseeable and the school was negligent in preventing it. If the school had prior instances of violence but failed to improve its security, possibly by installing metal detectors, it could be considered negligent. Whether a shooting victim survives or not, many future financial burdens face the victim and their family, and they may be able to recover financial restitution through a civil lawsuit."
