Can I Sue If My Child Was Sexual Assaulted on a Middle School Campus?

Kevin Biniazan, a legal contributor and experienced sexual assault attorney, represents victims of school sexual abuse. Kevin discussed when families can sue if their child was sexually assaulted on a middle school campus.

"Unfortunately, reports of school sexual assaults are on the rise. The problem of student-on-student sexual assaults has also become more common. The legal duty of schools and school administrators to provide safety on their campuses is even more important in light of this increase. Schools should do everything possible to reduce the risk of all types of danger, including sexual abuse. A proper safety plan could incorporate things like security cameras, regular security sweeps, resource officers on patrol, and even a basic reporting system. 

"If a student is assaulted, either by a school employee or another student, it's critical to conduct an investigation. The perpetrator should be identified and prosecuted for their crime. However, if the school is determined to have failed in its duty to prevent the abuse, victims may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit."

"Student sexual assaults are often the result of school security neglect. If school administrators ignore the misconduct of a school employee or student, they may be held accountable if they abuse another student. Victims of school sexual assault may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent school or school district. Lawsuits against negligent third parties are complex, and victims should get legal counsel from an experienced school sexual assault lawyer."
