Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard, an experienced sexual assault attorney licensed in Florida, has represented numerous victims sexually abused by a teacher. Below, Michael provides insight into victims’ legal rights and their families suffering from teacher sexual assault.

“Schools and administration have a legal duty to uphold the safety of students enrolled in their schools, including sexual assault. Unfortunately, in the past few months, there have been numerous teacher-student sexual assault cases. Therefore, schools and administrations must increase their safeguards and implement all necessary protections to ensure the safety of students. If a school fails to implement the adequate safeguards, they may be deemed negligent in the court of law.”

“When a victim is sexually abused by a teacher, their family should question if the school did everything possible to prevent the abuse from occurring. For example, did the school have safeguards such as cameras and reporting systems to protect their students. In cases where a school fails to have safeguards implement, they may be deemed negligent in the sexual assault. An example of negligence is if a student reported a teacher for sexual assault, but the teacher was not properly investigated. In negligence cases, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for any damages.”
