Identifying Accountable Parties in Your Case
When sexual abuse is carried out on young students, it is not always clear who is truly liable for the damage. My skills and insight allow me to identify the accountable parties and help the client understand the compensation to which they and/or their child is entitled.
Parties that can be held accountable for sexual abuse on school grounds may include:
- Students: When sexual abuse is carried out by one student against another, faculty, administrators and others in charge of the care and supervision of the students may still be liable. Examples of this type of misconduct include everything from inappropriate groping to intercourse.
- Teachers and administrators: Malicious sexual acts carried out in the schools by teachers, administrators and other School Board employees may place liability on both the Board employee engaged in the misconduct and the School Board responsible for the care and well-being of the student. This may be the case even if the sexual misconduct did not take place on school property, depending on the circumstances of the case.
Compensation for schoolyard sexual abuse claims needs to take into consideration any bills that could have accrued due to medical or psychological treatment and evaluations necessary for the care of your child. It must also include compensation for the emotional trauma your child endured due to the abuse. I will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation available to your child as a result of the sexual abuse committed upon him or her, taking into account the very specific psychological and emotional damages which flow from this type of deplorable misconduct.
