Do You Have a Case?
Most civil lawsuits rely on the foundation of negligence. Negligence is someone’s failure to meet the accepted standards of care for the industry or the situation. Any action or failure to act that falls outside the standard of care could qualify as negligence. If negligence causes someone else harm, such as the opportunity for a teacher to sexually abuse a student, the party could be liable for damages. You may have a civil case if your attorney can prove that the school, school district or another entity owed your child a duty of care, breached this duty and contributed to the sexual abuse.
