Teacher Abuse Lawsuit

Call a Walnut Creek Child Sex Abuse Lawyer

Teachers are, for most children, the ultimate authority figure. They are in contact with a child for many hours each day—in many cases more than the child's parents. When the teacher abuses his or her authority by molesting children or engaging in other inappropriate sexual conduct, it can cause psychological and emotional problems that may last a lifetime.

Since our founding in 1979, our Walnut Creek child sex abuse lawyers have obtained numerous verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured clients, including people abused by their teachers.

At Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook, our attorneys help child abuse victims obtain compensation for the damage done to them by a teacher. Over the years, we’ve won more than 50 verdicts and settlements in amounts greater than $1 million.

Teacher-Child Abuse Cases

Our attorneys file lawsuits against individual teachers as well as school districts seeking compensation for the damage done by the abuser.

We handle cases such as those involving:

  • High school and junior high teachers having sex with students
  • Inappropriate touching by elementary school teachers
  • School guards molesting students
  • School coaches engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct with athletes
  • Sexual assault or rape by a teacher or other school official
  • School counselors instituting a sexual relationship with a student
  • After-school youth group advisers having sexual contact with students in the group

When school officials are aware that such behavior is occurring and do nothing to stop it, both the school district and the abuser can be held liable. Our attorneys have access to highly respected investigators who are able to determine whether the school administration was aware that child abuse was taking place. They help us build strong cases against school districts, administrators and individual child abusers.
