Your Expert School Abuse Lawyers

Schools are highly valued in Australian society and have a broader role than educating children. The Australian Government has various domestic responsibilities to uphold children’s rights to education, to provide a safe learning environment and to protect children against abuse in schools. If you or your child have experienced abuse within a school, our experienced abuse lawyers can provide assistance.

School abuse can take many forms, from physical abuse to sexual abuse, bullying, neglect, and other forms of emotional abuse in schools. Sometimes it can involve teachers, while, at other times it only involves students. As in other contexts, abusers in school settings use a wide range of tactics and strategies, including grooming, to facilitate the abuse of a child. Abuses can groom the child, as well as other people in the child’s life, for example their parents or carers, teachers, and other staff members within the school community. The rise of more advanced technology and the prevalence of different social media platforms over the years has made online bullying difficult to track and more prevalent, both on school grounds and outside of the school. While many schools have adopted anti-bullying policies and programs, bullying and abuse still occurs in many different forms.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse identified numerous problems in the ways that schools responded to child sexual abuse in school and met their responsibility to keep children safe. Many of these problems are common to other types of institutions, however certain features and risks of the school environment have influenced how these failures manifest in schools and magnify the impact of failed responses. Following the inquiry, recommendations were made to improve child protection in schools.

Despite these efforts, school abuse in all forms still occurs and can have damaging long-term mental health impacts on students, impacting not only their academic performance at school, but also their future prospects, ability to earns table income, and self-esteemSchool abuse lawyers can help past and current students and their families to stop abuse in its tracks, bring justice to the survivor, hold the school institution responsible, while protecting the safety and identity of the survivor.

How Can A School Abuse Lawyer Help Me?

Any kind of abuse can have a significant long-lasting impact on survivors, especially children. These impacts can carry on into later life, leading to costly medical expenses, and time off work or school. School abuse can have a detrimental impact to you or your child’s quality of life, either temporarily or permanently. Additionally, school abuse can result in significant emotional distress for survivors’ families.

Holding schools responsible for its actions or inactions, especially when it comes to the abuse of children, can stop an abuser and reduce the number of people affected in future. It can also strengthen the claims of others who have suffered (or are still suffering) from an abuser. The legal claims process can be confronting and difficult, especially if the survivor is still a part of the school community. But accepting and confronting these issues can also form a critical role in the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’. Long story short: you only pay us when you achieve a successful outcome. So if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Let’s break it down.

  • We start by reviewing your claim in detail and give you a clear assessment of your prospects for success. We’re experts in compensation law, so we can give you an accurate assessment of your claim.
  • Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.
  • We’ll explain it clearly and thoroughly, with as little legal speak as possible – we promise you’ll understand it completely.
  • Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. This specifies that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.
  • In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful.
  • Remember, your success rests on you providing us with an honest, comprehensive account of all matters relevant to your claim.
