Legal Options of Students Sexually Abused by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced sexual assault attorney who represents victims in civil lawsuits. Below, Kevin provides commentary on the legal right of victims abused sexually by a school employee.

“There is a legal obligation to protect students enrolled acquired by schools and their administration. As a result, schools must do everything possible to limit and prevent sexual abuse from occurring. To prevent abuse, schools should implement safety measures such as cameras and guards. Unfortunately, predators often seek out positions of power and trust in schools to abuse students sexually. Schools must ensure they run background checks to prevent predators from working in their schools.”

“If a school fails to provide adequate safety measures, it may be deemed liable in any sexual abuse the occurs by an employee. A school could be deemed liable due to negligence. An example of negligence is if previous misconduct complaints were filed but not properly investigated. Victims sexually abused by a teacher should acquire the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to learn their legal options. In cases of negligence, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school.”
