Greek Life Organization Lawyer in Cary
Over a Decade of Experience Handling Student-Related Issues
Intended to create strong relationships and foster a sense of community between students, Greek Life organizations are considered a safe place for many students seeking a home away from home. Whether students are a member of the organization or are visiting with friends who are members, most don’t instinctively question their safety when spending time at a fraternity or sorority. However, incidents of all types can occur in Greek Life activities, houses, or related events. The Law Office of D. Hardison Wood can help you in times of trouble when you call our Cary attorney.
Common Claims Filed Against Greek Life Chapters
Greek life often gets a bad reputation for publicly acknowledged incidents, such as hazing, binge-drinking, or sexual assault, but a variety of incidents occur in Greek life situations across the United States all too often. From accidental falls to sexual assault cases to freak accidents that occur after the overindulgence of alcohol or other impairing substances, Greek life, and the lifestyle associated with it can pose many risks to members and nonmembers alike.
Common claims that arise against Greek life chapters include:
- Assault and Battery
- Sexual Assault
- Slip & Fall Accidents
- Falls from Heights
- Auto Accidents
- Hazing Incidents
When it comes to incidents that occur during Greek Life activities, the lines of fault are often blurry. Many times, Greek Life chapters are private from the associated university or college, limiting the protection that students may receive from campus police or security. When a nonmember faces personal injury at the fault of a fraternity or sorority, the situation may become further complicated. At the Law Office of D. Hardison Wood, we recognize that no two Greek Life-related incidents are the same and that a variety of factors can contribute to an accident.
