Cyberbullying Lawyer Deals with Social Media Harassment Issues

Law firm represents victims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Social media has enabled communication and community building across the globe. Unfortunately, it has also empowered bullies to launch coordinated campaigns that relentlessly harass their targets, often with tragic results. Cyberbullying on social media platforms has become such a huge problem that the U.S. Congress is investigating possible regulations and sanctions against the tech giants that have amassed great fortunes but have failed to protect individuals targeted for abuse. At The Pagano Law Firm, LLC in Radnor, we will fight for victims of cyberbullying in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We want you to know that you can fight back effectively against social media abuse, and we stand ready to help.

How to identify cyberbullying on social media

Cyberbullying is the use of digital technology to harass, threaten, intimidate, humiliate or ostracize individuals. In some instances, bullies use cellphones to record images, audio and video designed to cause their targets emotional distress. Embarrassing materials can be transmitted instantly via text messaging, emails and social media platforms. The practice has become extremely common among tweens and teenagers, who often target schoolmates who stand out for one reason or another. Cyberbullying can be even more emotionally devastating than other types of bullying, especially to vulnerable youngsters. 

Cyberbullying and school responsibility

Public schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey must have anti-bullying policies that conform with state rules. Policies include disciplinary measures and protocols for registering complaints with designated staff. Unfortunately, schools are not always proactive about investigating and remediating complaints, especially when the alleged bullying happens off school property. Parents faced with uncooperative school authorities should immediately contact an attorney for bullying victims at our firm.
