Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted at a Massage Parlor

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, an experienced sexual assault lawyer, has represented numerous victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. In an interview, Brian provided the following insight into the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted in a massage spa.

“There have been reports of widespread issues in the massage therapy industry with sexual assault as clients are vulnerable to their massage therapists’ easy access. Clients have reported hundreds of masseuses for sexual assault across the county. Victims who have been sexually assaulted in massage parlors should know their rights. These victims may have grounds to sue the spa where they were assaulted.”

“Massage spa owners have a legal obligation to uphold their client's safety. These owners must ensure the therapists working are trustworthy and qualified. Spas may be held liable if a masseuse sexually assaults a client and the spa is proven to be negligent. One example of negligence is if previous complaints were made against a masseuse, and they were permitted to keep working. If a victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was a result of negligence on behalf of the spa owner, the victim may have ground for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages.”
