Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Assault by Doctors

Doctor sexual assault victim lawyer Kim Dougherty has represented several victims in sexual assault lawsuits against doctors and negligent medical facilities. Kim has offered to share some legal commentary on the legal rights of these victims:

Doctors are highly trusted by their communities and colleagues, and usually, this trust is warranted. But unfortunately, there have also been thousands of reports of sexual crimes committed by doctors against their patients and employees. These victims should be aware that they have legal rights in both criminal and civil courts.

Sexual predators working in the medical field must be held accountable for their crimes, and the criminal justice system works to meet this goal. Additionally, victims of predatory doctors often have grounds to file a lawsuit against the doctor and/or the medical facility where the sexual crimes occurred. This includes both patients and those who work with doctors.
