Hazing is an epidemic that affects countless individuals across the nation. Every year, thousands of students are subjected to unnecessary and preventable physical and emotional trauma. This problem continues because hazing goes unreported and because school leaders fail to provide the level of oversight needed to ensure the safety and well-being of enrolled students.
It doesn’t matter where you live or study. Hazing can touch anyone’s life and adversely impact their future and academic performance. Everyone has rights, and everyone has the ability to hold responsible parties accountable for their actions or inactions. That’s where a law firm with attorneys who are qualified to handle hazing lawsuits in any state can help. The Doan Law Firm includes a large team of personal injury attorneys, investigators and legal professionals who investigate hazing cases and hold responsible parties accountable in the nation’s civil courts. We handle all types of hazing cases, including those that involve the following issues.
If you or a loved one has been injured or emotionally harmed by hazing, you are not alone. Psychologists say that hazing is more violent, humiliating and sexually charged than ever. Experts estimated that at least one fraternity or sorority member or pledge has died due to hazing every year since 1970. In the past 10 years, 30 college students have died during initiation rituals. Although most hazing-related deaths are linked to alcohol poisoning, physical and sexual abuse can also cause severe injuries.
