Hazing Resulting In Wrongful Death

Serving Gainesville, Jacksonville, Atlanta areas

When academic organizations use hazing to “initiate” new members into their group, they often defend the practice by saying that it helps bring new recruits closer together. This excuse simply does not bear out in reality. Many hazing rituals are so brutal they end up causing the accidental death of a new recruit.

There is no tragedy greater than a young life, with endless potential, being cut short by the senseless act of hazing. If your loved one has been killed because of hazing, our experienced attorneys at The Chestnut Firm can help you hold the responsible parties accountable.

Fatal Hazing Accidents

In some states – including Florida – hazing which results in wrongful death is considered a third-degree felony. Even if the hazing victim initially gave their consent to undergo the ritual, the people responsible for committing hazing are still just as punishable for their crime.

More than one party may be liable in a hazing wrongful death case, including:

  • The group leader(s)
  • The group members who directly caused the death
  • School officials who did not take action to prevent hazing

Our attorneys will perform a complete investigation into your loved one’s death to make sure every circumstance and responsible party is accounted for. While no amount of money can make up for the loss of your child or family member, pursuing justice through a wrongful death case is important in order to take a stand against hazing and prevent similar violence from happening in the future.
