Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced sexual assault lawyer and has worked with numerous victims of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian highlights the legal options of victims sexually assaulted by a teacher.
"Schools and administrations are legally obligated to provide a safe learning environment to students enrolled. When parents send their children to school, they trust the teachers and staff to care for them and upkeep their safety. Unfortunately, across the country, numerous teachers have been accused of sexual assault. Schools should implement security measures to ensure the safety of students."
"Schools should implement security measures such as cameras, reporting systems, and background checks. If abuse occurs by a staff member and there were not adequate security measures, the school may be deemed liable due to negligence. An example of negligence is if a teacher was accused of abuse by a student but not properly investigated. However, there are numerous forms of negligence. Victims should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to learn about all their rights. Nonetheless, in cases of negligence, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation."
