Though premises liability is a developing area of law, courts have found universities to be responsible for certain attacks because the schools did not implement preventive action or exercise reasonable care to provide a safe environment.

Schools are supposed to provide adequate security and monitor who is on the campus—ensuring that no one is there who isn’t supposed to be. In instances in which a college campus is taken to court for an attack that happened, the court looks at these facts and also considers whether previous attacks have occurred at this same campus. If it is clear that the school did not take sufficient precautionary measures then they can be held liable. And having an aggressive lawyer on your side could help you proceed with your case.

Public entities, such as law enforcement agencies, are typically immune to tort liability, which means they aren’t usually held accountable for civil wrong or injury. But schools are not granted this immunity. They instead need to be actionable when it comes to providing a safe environment.
