Hazing Injuries Lawsuit Lawyer
The families and victims of hazing-related injuries deserve support and legal representation. All too often, parents are left devastated when the lives of once bright students are destroyed in hazing accidents. Excessive alcohol consumption, humiliation, dangerous challenges and non-consensual sexual contact are just some of the unacceptable activities that take place during hazing all across America.
At the Harman Law Firm, we advocate for those who have fallen victim to needless suffering as a direct result of hazing activities. Under Georgia code, hazing is unlawful according to Title 16 – § 16-5-61.
Hazing is defined as subjecting a student to activity that endangers the physical or mental health of the student, before granting membership to a group or organization. These activities are reckless and may result in serious injuries or fatalities. Harman Law Firm is committed to fighting for the rights of the wider community, including our young adults as they navigate their way through college or university life.
Fatal Hazing Claims Lawyer
When a student dies as the result of hazing activity, parents are left grieving and looking for answers. The reality is, hazing takes many forms and may prove difficult to identify. Students are often pressured into taking part in activities with no real concept of the potential consequences. While alcohol hazing is a common form of abuse, students may be coerced into other dangerous activities.
Initiation rites may involve coercion to perform acts or take part in an activity that could result in harm. Sexual hazing can include encouraging pledges to engage in sexual acts or simulation of such acts. Violence is often inflicted on students by fraternity members in a ritualistic fashion. Students may die as a direct result of hazing activities or take their own lives due to mental abuse.
