Can I Sue If My Child Was Sexually Assaulted By A Middle School Teacher?

Attorney contributor Kristen Beightol helps victims file school sex assault lawsuits in North Carolina. Kristen guides victims and their parents through the legal process allowing them to seek the justice they deserve. Recently, she explained when parents could sue if their child was sexually abused by a middle school teacher.

"Middle school officials and school districts have a duty to provide a safe environment for students. Unfortunately, if a sexual predator is able to take the position of a teacher or coach, they have access to vulnerable children. They can then use their position of power and trust to take advantage of these victims. Background checks, security monitoring cameras, and effective reporting procedures are some of the precautions a school can take to prevent abuse. However, if a school is found to have neglected basic safety precautions, it can be held responsible in a civil lawsuit."

"It can be hard for parents to understand how a teacher would abuse a child. Schools and the school district can be held accountable for failing to provide proper security. In fact, if the school ignored previous reports of misconduct, the court could find it negligent. School sex abuse victims and their parents can explore their legal options by consulting with an experienced school sex abuse attorney."
