Attorney contributor Aaron Blank directly represents sex abuse victims in civil lawsuits. Aaron has offered to share a bit of his knowledge on the legal rights of students who have been sexually abused by school staff members:
Sexual predators are often close to their victims and in positions of trust. Our sex abuse victim lawyers regularly see this in cases of school staff members sexually abusing students. Officials in schools and other institutions that involve working with children must do all that they can to protect the children under their watch from sexual predators.
In some school sexual abuse cases, the abuse may have been prevented if not for negligence by the school district. For example, a school district could be considered negligent for ignoring previous reports of inappropriate behavior by a staff member towards students. In cases of negligence, school sex abuse victims and their parents may have the right to file a lawsuit against the school district.
