Fraternity hazing is a dangerous practice that can lead to severe physical and emotional harm and even loss of life. At Frantz Law Group, our fraternity hazing lawyers understand the gravity of these situations and are dedicated to holding parties accountable for such reckless behavior.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers are committed to fighting for justice for victims of hazing activities in American fraternities and sororities.


Understanding the Impact of Fraternity Hazing

Fraternity hazing not only disrupts academic pursuits; it also has long-term effects among high school and college students—serious injuries, lower self-esteem, increased substance abuse rates, and other psychological issues.

In extreme cases, hazing has led to fatalities due to alcohol poisoning and excessive consumption, paddling, sexual assault, physical abuse, sleep deprivation, and other dangerous hazing practices.

Fraternity hazing is not a harmless tradition or rite of passage—it is a form of bullying and harassment that can lead to hazing deaths and life-altering consequences.

Navigating the legal complexities surrounding hazing cases requires expert guidance. A skilled attorney can help victims of hazing violations hold responsible parties accountable, seek justice, and secure compensation for their suffering.

Understanding Your Rights and Options

Fraternity hazing cases can be complex and emotionally draining. At Frantz Law Group, we believe in simplifying legal jargon and turning it into everyday language for our clients.

As a victim, you can—and have the right to—report the incident without fear of reprisal. You also have the right to seek compensation for any physical injuries, psychological harm, or academic disruption you’ve suffered due to hazing.

Victims can file a personal injury lawsuit against those responsible for the hazing, including individual fraternity members, the fraternity itself, and potentially the educational institution.

In some cases, criminal charges may also be brought against the perpetrators.
