Sexual Abuse in California Schools

CALIFORNIA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS SERVING CLIENTS IN SAN DIEGO, LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO, SACRAMENTO, FRESNO, BAKERSFIELD, AND RIVERSIDE

Schools should be safe places for children; however, they are not always. While we want to believe our kids are safe at school, the reality is that predators often hide in plain sight, including in classrooms and school grounds. When the trust between parent/child and adults working in education is broken, legal action needs to be taken in order to hold those accountable for child sexual abuse.

When the education system has failed you and/or your child, look no further than Frantz Law Group for experienced and skilled legal representation. Our California personal injury attorneys can investigate where the abuse took place, gather evidence, interview potential witnesses, and build a strong case to help you obtain the monetary damages and justice you deserve.

HOLDING SCHOOLS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS & INACTIONS

Schools are obligated to ensuring the safety of children on their premises, carefully vet each and every potential and current employee, and thoroughly investigate complaints regarding employees’ behavior since they work closely with children. Schools which fail to conduct this due diligence need to be held responsible for their negligent actions. Furthermore, schools may try to protect their image or reputation by knowingly concealing evidence of child sexual abuse perpetrated by teachers or other school employees.

However, a child sexual abuse case against a school can be challenging. Government employees, including school employees, are protected by a legal shield known as “governmental immunity,” which protects state employees from getting sued for performing their job duties. In order to recover compensation for injuries, the plaintiff must prove that the school was “grossly negligent” in preventing the abuse and inadequately responded to the child’s injuries.

Our California personal injury attorneys are dedicated to upholding the rights of children and obtaining fair compensation for victims of any sexual abuse. We pursue civil liability against schools, youth organizations, and other programs to hold them accountable for their actions or to address their failure to provide adequate care for these kids. Not only do we want to seek justice for you or your loved one, but also ensure that this doesn’t happen at the school again.
