Can I Sue if a Teacher Sexually Abused My Child?

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau is a sex abuse victim lawyer who helps victims and their families find justice through civil lawsuits against sexual predators and negligent third parties, such as schools. Bobby has provided commentary below regarding filing a lawsuit for sexual abuse at a school.

"Teachers are trusted daily by both parents and children. Sadly, there have been many cases of teachers and other school staff taking advantage of their positions to abuse students sexually. School officials are legally obligated to initiate preventative security measures to protect their students from this abuse. This may include conducting extensive background checks and researching reports of prior misconduct."

"If a teacher is charged with sexually abusing a student, it is necessary to inquire if the school did everything it could to prevent the abuse. Some abuse cases only happen as a result of the school's negligence, which may include ignoring past complaints of a teacher's inappropriate behavior."

"In cases of negligence, school sex abuse victims and their families have grounds for a civil lawsuit. If you fear your child has been sexually abused, it is imperative to learn more about your legal options with an experienced sex abuse victim lawyer."
