Legal Recourse For School Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has been representing victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits for years. During a recent interview with Brian, he explained some of the legal options for recourse for families that have lost loved ones to school shootings. He especially focused on when a school could be held liable for shootings.

"Schools have a moral and legal obligation to provide a level of safety for students, staff, and guests on their campus. It is important that they provide adequate security measures to reduce the risks of preventable violent crimes, such as shootings. These preventative safety measures could include security cameras, patrolling security officers, and monitoring entrances and exits to the property. If the school does not implement sufficient safety measures and a crime occurs on the property, the victim and their family may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the school."

"In addition to security neglect, a school could be held liable if the crime is found to be foreseeable. When a school has a history of violence on its property or in the general area yet neglects to improve its security measures, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. An experienced school shooting victim attorney will work to prove the crime occurred as a result of the school's neglect. The victim or the family of those killed in school shootings are encouraged to seek the legal guidance of a school shooting victim attorney."
