Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Abused by a School Employee

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has represented numerous victims and their families in sexual assault civil lawsuits. Below, Marc shares insight on the legal options of victims that have been sexually abused by a teacher.

"Schools and administrations have a legal duty to protect their students and provide a safe learning environment. Sadly, there have been numerous cases of teacher sexual assault across the country. Often these predators place themselves in positions of power and trust to exploit students sexually. To avoid sexual assault and protect students, schools should implement safety measures to provide the safest environment possible for their students."

"First, victims and their families should acquire the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to help explore their legal options. Given a school has a legal obligation to protect its students, if a school fails to provide adequate safety measures, it may be considered liable in a lawsuit for negligence. An example of negligence is if prior misconduct reports were filed, but the teacher was not adequately investigated. In negligence cases, victims and their families could have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school."
