A Florida mom is suing the bullies whose actions she says led to her daughter’s death.
Rebecca Sedwick was 12 years old when two of her classmates pushed her too far. After enduring endless bullying, she climbed a tower at an abandoned concrete factory and threw herself to her death.
Now her mom, Tricia Norman, has filed a lawsuit against the two girls’ families. She says that the bullies’ actions caused Rebecca’s death. But will she win?
It’s hard to say. This type of case is known as a wrongful death case, and normally the family of the deceased can indeed recover compensation from those responsible for the death. But for a case to succeed there has to be evidence that someone’s actions—in this case, the bullies’—directly caused the death. Compensation may include money to help pay for funeral expenses and emotional suffering for the loss of a child. Perhaps most importantly it represents a chance to see the guilty party pay for their actions.
But that may not apply to bullies. Bullying lawsuits are on the rise, but there are a number of factors that make them hard to win:
Only time will tell whether Ms. Norman’s case will conclude in her favor. If it does, it will be an important precedent that could help other parents pursue justice in their own cases.
