Can I Sue For Being Assaulted By an EMT?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has years of experience filing civil lawsuits for victims sexually assaulted by an emergency responder. Brian recently discussed when victims could sue for being assaulted by an EMT.

"Emergency responders and medical professionals are trusted and respected by those around them. Ambulance companies have a duty to keep their patients safe during transit. This not only includes safe driving but also safe from preventable dangers like abuse. They should make sure to conduct background checks on all employees, keep working cameras within the vehicle, and report any misconduct. Sexual predators that take these positions can exploit their victims due to the trust and power of the position. The employer could be found negligent if they neglected to maintain basic safety procedures."

"Too often, sexual assault or misconduct could have been prevented if not for the negligence of the employer. If an emergency responder team failed to investigate past complaints about an employee who later was charged with sexual abuse, they could be considered negligent. Negligent security allows a victim to file a lawsuit against the perpetrator's employer. To determine the right course of legal action, victims should consult with an experienced sexual assault lawyer."
