Are Schools Liable for Sexual Abuse by Their Employees?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents survivors of sexual violence in civil lawsuits, helping them fight for the justice and financial compensation they deserve. Additionally, he possesses experience in cases involving soccer coach sexual abuse of students.  Here are some of his thoughts on school liability for sexual abuse by teachers, coaches, and other school employees:

Student safety needs to be a priority for all schools. As anyone who pays attention to local news knows, our schools have widespread problems with sexual abuse involving teachers, coaches, and other staff members. Our schools must be aware of the fact that sexual predators seek out positions in education and they must do all that they can to keep their students safe from these predators.

Tragically, many cases of sexual abuse by school employees may have been prevented if it weren’t for the school’s negligence. For example, a school might be deemed negligent if it failed to respond to previous reports of sexual misconduct involving an employee. In these types of cases, the victims and their families may have the right to sue the school district or private school.

If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse involving a school employee, the first step should be contacting the authorities. Additionally, we advise discussing your case with an experienced sex abuse survivors attorney in order to fully understand your legal options.
