Dallas Attorney for Victims of Sexual Abuse In Schools
Unfortunately, students are sometimes sexually abused within the school environment, by teachers, coaches and other students.
The assaults often happen during the school day or following an after school activity, function or sporting event. In addition to sexual assaults, bullying is another form of abuse that can be damaging to a child. In some instances, bullying can be so damaging physically and psychologically that it provokes suicide.
The imbalance of power the teacher, coach or instructor has over the child or youth is often overwhelming to the student. If your student is faced with these issues, report it to school authorities and the police. Document your report and get treatment and seek legal advice for your child.
Attorney Lori Watson is experienced at litigating private school, public school or boarding school cases.
