School Wrongful Death
Let The Federal Practice Group Worldwide Service Seek Justice on Your Behalf
We unfortunately live in a time where instances of sudden violence at our
colleges, universities, high schools, and other educational institutions
now occur in fairly regular intervals. While some of these institutions
work along with experts and the authorities to keep their students and
staff safe, many of these places remain complacent and unprotected against
the unexpected—and when the unexpected does occur, legal action
is called for.

specific area of the law:

of school violence. He and his team negotiated and secured a historic
settlement on behalf of 20 families and clients who suffered loss and
injury in the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre. Since then, he has continued
to be on the forefront of this area of the law and consistently ensures
the voices of the victims and those left behind are heard.

Who is liable?
Victims and the loved ones of victims of school violence can be uncertain
on how to proceed with legal action in the wake of these incidents. Certainly,
a violent perpetrator is responsible for any injury or death that they
cause, but these dangerous incidents and others do not occur without being
fostered by a larger, systemic failing of the educational institution itself.
What school liabilities contribute to a wrongful death?
- Lack of appropriate security
- Lack of appropriate mental health resources
- Lack of proper prohibition of activities (such as parties)
- Dangerous hazards in campus housing
- Any other failure to recognize a potential danger
