Dallas Fraternity Hazing Attorney
Fort Worth Hazing Victim Attorney
When your child joined a fraternity or sorority at college or university, you did not volunteer to submit them to torture. Fraternity hazing traditions are not a license to inflict injury or cause death to others. If fraternity or sorority hazing during pledge week on campus has had devastating results for your family, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the law offices of Frenkel & Frenkel in Dallas.
Criminal Penalties May Apply to Perpetrators of Fraternity Misconduct
The Texas Legislature passed an anti-hazing law in 1995, which makes it clear that individuals or organizations engaging in hazing can be fined and charged with a criminal offense.
The law specifies that a person commits a hazing offense not only by directly engaging in a hazing activity, but also by soliciting, directing, encouraging, aiding or attempting to aid another in hazing, whether intentionally, knowingly or recklessly.
If, in the course of fraternity hazing or hazing in any other organization, you were seriously injured or your son or daughter was killed, talk to an attorney as soon as possible while eyewitnesses' memories are fresh and other evidence is still accessible.
Civil Lawsuits Can Result in Compensation for Pledge Injury Victims
While hazing perpetrators may face criminal penalties including prison time, victims may have to deal with permanent injury — or their families may lose their beloved children unjustly.
That's where a personal injury attorney's experience, skills and talent come into play. At the law offices of Frenkel & Frenkel, we dedicate our careers to obtaining compensation for victims of negligence, including fraternity hazing injury victims.
We are former insurance defense lawyers who literally have the playbook of our clients' legal opponents. We know the tactics that fraternity insurers are likely to use to minimize compensation to fraternity hazing victims and their families. We pride ourselves on representing personal injury clients that other lawyers have turned down. It is our mission and our professional duty to protect the rights of victims who have suffered bodily harm because of others' negligence and abuse.
