Types of Injuries on Campus
Although educational institutions are generally thought to be safe environments, there are a number of events that could cause injury. Some of the most common situations that lead to college campus injures include:
- Assault and theft
- Acts of violence
- Sexual assault, sexual misconduct and rape
- Alcohol-related accidents or alcohol poisoning
Fighting for Accountability:
Wrongful Death on College Campus
Wrongful death occurs when someone’s negligence results in the death of another. A university could potentially be held liable for a student’s death if there were security lapses on campus, such as not employing enough campus security officers or failing to fix a building’s entry system. If a student reported fearing for their life, or passed along threatening messages from another person, the college may be held responsible for that student’s death if they did not take appropriate action regarding those claims. A college campus accident lawyer will work tirelessly to ensure accountability for a wrongful death event.
Suicide on College Campus
College suicides have been tragically rising in recent years. If a professor or administrator knows a student is depressed or suicidal and fails to reach out to ensure that student’s safety, the institution could be held liable for the student’s death. A parent who lost their child to suicide should contact a lawyer to start an immediate investigation as to whether the administration had a duty to do more to protect their students.
Death and severe injuries as a result of college hazing rituals are also increasing. The local fraternity or sorority chapters, the national organization, and the individual students involved are usually held responsible, while the university itself is generally not. However, the laws regarding responsibility could evolve as states try to put more pressure on schools.
