Can I Sue For Being Sexually Assaulted During a Massage?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced sexual assault attorney who has represented victims of sexual abuse during massages. Kevin has assisted many victims in seeking justice for these heinous acts by filing civil lawsuits against negligent treatment centers. He recently offered some information on the legal options available to victims sexually assaulted by a massage therapist, including when they can sue.

"Massage therapy is a profession where clients are easily subjected to sexual assault. Hundreds of complaints of massage therapists sexually assaulting their clients have surfaced around the country. Sexual assault can take many forms, but it always boils down to any unwelcome sexual contact. Victims of sexual assault by a masseuse are entitled to justice, and they can pursue it in both criminal and civil courts."

"Reporting sexual assault to law enforcement could result in a criminal investigation and even charges being brought against the perpetrator. Additionally, victims may be able to file a lawsuit directly against the perpetrator or the massage parlor or where the sexual assault occurred. The massage parlor, or treatment clinic, is required by law to maintain a level of security to prevent sexual assault. Conducting background checks, following up on any reports of misconduct, and installing security cameras in specific parts of the establishment are just a few examples of these measures. If a massage parlor or treatment clinic fails to follow safety procedures and a client is assaulted, the massage parlor can be liable for negligence. Victims of sexual assault by a massage therapist should consult an experienced sexual assault attorney about their legal rights for justice and financial compensation."
