Filing a Lawsuit Over Sexual Abuse by a Physical Therapist
Sexual assault lawyer Kevin Biniazin represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits against sexual predators and negligent third parties. Kevin has some information to add regarding the legal rights of physical therapist sexual assault victims:
Physical therapists are trusted by their clients and no one ever expects their physical therapist to violate this trust. While most physical therapists are trustworthy, there have also been cases of clients being sexually assaulted by their physical therapists. Predators in this field must be held accountable for their crimes and the victims deserve answers, support, and justice.
While the criminal justice system seeks to prosecute sexual predators, it often fails to directly address the needs of victims. Fortunately, victims can often find the support they need and deserve by filing their own civil sexual assault lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances of the crime, both the perpetrator and a negligent third party (such as a business where the assault took place) can be named in a sexual assault lawsuit.
