Michigan Cyber Bullying Facts

Dedicated to Serving You

Cyberbullying is the use of technology or social media platforms to harass, threaten, embarrass or target another person. Cyberbullying may result in emotional injury including emotional distress, anxiety, depression, fear, insecurity and mental anguish -which in some cases may make victim consider self harm or suicide.

With the advances in technology and dramatic increase in the use of social media as a primary means of communication, cyberbullying – – in most cases of children and teenagers – – is reaching epidemic proportions. While the criminal system has addressed this issue and is punishing offenders, not much is being done to compensate the victims.However, social medial liability law is evolving and our lawyers are at the forefront of this new wave of litigation.

An initial obstacle to obtaining damages for the victims of cyberbullying is establishing insurance coverage. Many insurance companies regard cyberbullying as an “intentional act” and exclude these claims from coverage. However, some jurisdictions are recognizing exceptions to the “intentional acts” exclusion and requiring insurance carriers to pay damages to the victims.

It is also important to recognize that in some cases, the parents of a child engaged in cyberbullying may be held liable where the parent is negligent in failing to properly monitor and supervise their child’s activities online.

Verdicts & Settlements

Dedicated to Serving You

Police Shooting

Officers were called to the home of a man suspected of an overdose. The man refused medical care. Officers at the scene became verbally aggressive in their commands, prompting the man to physically resist their attempts to transport him to a hospital. The officers allege that the man threw a karate style kick and began to choke one of the officers while the other fired his weapon at the man in defense of his fellow officer. As a result, the man suffered a gun-shot wound to the abdomen and nerve damage in his leg. The defense offered $5,000.00 prior to trial. Jury Verdict:

 $495,000

At a national restaurant chain, a female kitchen staff employee was a victim of sexual harassment. This harassment ultimately forced her to quit her job when the employer failed to take the necessary measures to stop this harassment. The verdict was:

 $100,000
