Case Barnett Law Protects The Most Vulnerable Members Of Society From Physical and Sexual Abuse

Case Barnett Law represents victims who have been both physically and sexually abused at school or church. Schools hold a special position of trust and when they allow a child to be harmed, they must answer to us.

Teachers, coaches, pastors, priests, coaches, school administrators, and other students may all be perpetrators of of child sex abuse in schools or churches. Sadly, children with special needs may be at increased risk of becoming victims of sexual abuse. We represent special needs children who deserve a law firm who will fight for them with compassion. 

Schools Must Be Held Accountable 

Parents have few options when it comes to where their children will go to school. Schools, therefore, have a special duty to provide a safe place where parents can trust that their child's needs will be met. Children and their parents should not have to worry about sexual abuse at school. 

Schools are required, by law, to exercise a special degree of care and ensure the safety of their students. Teachers and staff must be properly trained. Additionally, there are strict rules about supervision. School districts are required to ensure that teachers and staff act appropriately. A school district can be held liable when a child is abused by a teacher or other staff member or when the school does not take the appropriate steps to keep children safe while they are at school. 

It is important to hire an attorney who is experienced with suing school districts. Both the perpetrator of the abuse and the school who overlooked the incidents are often involved when a suit is filed. 

How Do I Sue A California School? 

When you sue a school, you are filing a claim against a government entity. This is an extremely complex process which means it is vital to hire only an attorney who is experience with physical and sexual abuse in a California school. School sex abuse cases generally have a short time period in which you can file a claim so it is imperative to hire an attorney immediately if you suspect your child is the victim of physical or sexual assault.
