Hazing

Hazing

Hazing refers to any activity that involves humiliation, degradation, abuse, or endangerment of an individual as part of joining or participating in a group, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate.

Hazing is commonly associated with college fraternities and sororities, but it is not limited to these settings. Hazing occurs in various contexts, including middle and high schools, colleges and universities, the military, and workplaces. It can also be found in clubs, organizations, and sports teams across various domains.

Did you know?

  • Hazing is often about power and control. Hazing does not build unity.
  • More than half of students in colleges and universities involved in clubs, sports teams, and organizations have experienced hazing.
  • A significant number of hazing incidents and deaths involve alcohol consumption.
  • Students are more likely to be hazed if they knew an adult who was hazed.
  • 2 in 5 students say they are aware of hazing taking place on their campus.
  • Hazing occurs in middle schools, high schools, and colleges.
  • Both male and female students report a high level of hazing.

The intimidating, harassing, and sometimes violent nature of hazing can pose significant threats to the health and safety of its victims. In some cases, hazing can result in severe injury or even death. Beyond the physical consequences, hazing can also have a detrimental impact on mental health and emotional well-being.

The hazing attorneys at the Fierberg National Law Group have successfully obtained tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. We have created institutional and legislative changes, and so too have our clients, using their strength, our advice, and the funds we have obtained for them.

No other firm or hazing victim attorney comes close to matching the success we have obtained for victims of hazing and other school misconduct.

We know the playbook, the defenses, and the roadblocks lawyers use to prevent victims from obtaining justice. Outside of the millions of dollars paid to our clients in compensation, our team of lawyers has caused reform and established legal precedents to help other victims and families.

Our legal team has the training, experience, and confidence to overcome tough legal obstacles and well-heeled lawyers.
