Michigan Fraternity Hazing Lawyer
Michigan Fraternity Hazing Lawyer
Did you know there has been at least one fraternity hazing death each year since 1970? And despite the risks, media attention, and high profile hazing court cases fraternities continue to have access to resources that shield them from legal responsibility. In fact, for decades fraternities have refused to make the changes necessary to render their activities safe.
What are examples of hazing?
While the media typically only reports on the most egregious forms of hazing, hazing issues plague thousands of students across the country every year. In fact, more than half of students in colleges and universities involved in clubs, sports teams and organizations have reported experiencing hazing.
Hazing looks like:
- Forced or required consumption of alcohol and/or drugs
- Forced to eat spicy foods and/or eat or drink toxic or other types of substances not meant for human consumption
- Endure hardships such as staying awake for long periods of time, menial tasks, physical labor, running while blindfolded, carrying sandbags or bricks in backpacks, etc.
- Humiliation (physical or mental) of new or potential members
- Isolation of new or potential members
- Beatings, paddling, “egging” or any other physical acts against new or potential members
- Sexual abuse/rape against new or potential members
- Any other illegal activities to prove worth

Doug Fierberg, Jonathan Fazzola, and the team at the Fierberg National Law Group have been fighting for those injured or killed as a result of dangerous misconduct in fraternities and schools for over 25 years.
