Legal Rights of Student Sex Abuse Victims

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau has represented school sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits in the state of California for years. As an experienced middle school sexual abuse lawyer, Bobby recently explained the legal rights of students who were sexually abused by their teachers. 

"Sadly, sexual predators seek out positions with power and trust, and this often includes positions within a school. It is up to the school officials to do everything they can to ensure all school staff has been vetted by an extensive background check. Additionally, security cameras and a proper reporting procedure can be critical to keeping students safe from sexual predators on a school campus. Unfortunately, there have been widespread cases of teachers sexually abusing students of all grade levels throughout the country. This leads to questions about the school's security where the abuse takes place. If security is being neglected, the school may be liable for the abuse."

"In instances where a teacher is accused of sexually abusing a student, an investigation of the school should follow. In too many cases, the abuse happens due to negligence by school officials. This can include officials failing to run background checks on the staff or ignoring past complaints of misconduct by the school employee. In cases of negligence, school sex abuse victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit. However, these cases can be complicated and involve a statute of limitations. An experienced school sexual abuse lawyer will have the knowledge to go over the state's law and guide the victim to ensure they get the justice they deserve."
