When Can a Middle School Be Held Liable for Sex Abuse?

Attorney contributor Reed Martens assists sexual abuse victims and their families in Kanas, helping them get the justice they rightfully deserve. As an experienced school sex abuse attorney, Reed recently discussed when a middle school could be held liable if a teacher sexually abuses a student.

"Each school day, parents entrust their children to the school administration and its employees. Schools in turn have a legal obligation to protect their students from a variety of avoidable dangers, including sexual abuse. Unfortunately, many instances of middle school teachers and other school staff being arrested for allegedly sexually abusing students have surfaced lately."

"Sexual misconduct and abuse can range from inappropriate relationships to physical assault. In order for a school to reduce the risk of abuse, they must be trained to recognize the signs of abuse. Additionally, extensive background checks should be conducted on each employee to prevent hiring known sexual predators. If school officials neglect their responsibilities to be proactive, they can be held liable for school sex abuse."

"Victims sexually abused by a middle school teacher should get legal advice from an experienced school sex abuse attorney. A lawsuit can be a complicated procedure to navigate. Any of the state's statutes of limitations will be understood by experienced attorneys, as well as how to prove the school or school district was negligent. By researching any earlier reports of wrongdoing that may have been neglected, the victim's attorney will create a case to prove that the abuse was foreseeable."
