Washington DC Sexual Assault Lawyers

Schools and Colleges Must Protect Their Students

Unfortunately, crimes of sexual violence are becoming increasingly more common at colleges and universities across the country. In fact, according to a 2014 White House Report, one in five women are sexually assaulted during either their freshman or sophomore year. Furthermore, men are at risk of becoming victims of sexual violence too. As you know, sexual assault encompasses a wide variety of incidents, but all involve non-consensual sexual contact.

Effects of Sexual Assault on Victims

Beyond the serious physical pain and injuries, victims of sexual assault may endure lifelong emotional trauma. They may suffer from PTSD, anxiety, depression, fear, and a host of other issues that stem from the incident itself. Many times, victims will be so traumatized that they are unable to concentrate on schoolwork, participate in activities, and continue with their studies.

How Can You Hold a School Liable?

In regard to sexual assault cases, you can win justice both through the criminal and civil court system. Perhaps the school failed to make effective policies to prevent sexual assault.  Maybe school staff fail to act in time.  Sometimes the school creates an environment that lends itself sexual assault. In conclusion, there are many ways in which the institution may have failed to exercise its proper duty.

Some ways in which an institution may be held liable for your sexual assault damages include:

  • Poor or negligent security
  • Failure to protect students in on-campus housing
  • Failure to comply with laws and best practices regarding sexual assault
  • Liability for acts of their employees
  • Any instances of fraud or similar issues
  • Creating a climate that doesn’t guard against sexual assault
