Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted within a Massage Parlor 

Attorney contributor, Dan Lipman, offers his expertise and commentary for victims who have been sexually abused by a massage therapist. Dan shares his knowledge and thoughts on the rights of victims and their families sexually abused in massage parlors:

“Businesses stand to deliver some form of product for their patrons and those who choose to support them. However, establishments, including massage parlors, must first ensure the safety and well-being of their customers before all else. When this is not the case, massage therapists misuse the trust placed with them and abuse people who are in need of their help. Predators see their positions as an opportunity to exploit patients sexually. Parlors must do whatever they can to protect those walking into their facility by using detailed background checks on their employees.”

“Individuals should never feel anxious or scared going into a massage parlor. If professional massage therapists cannot act appropriately, they can be prosecuted for their crimes under the judicial system. When an owner does not have careful measures in place, they can be seen as liable due to negligence in cases of sexual assault when a therapist is involved. As previous allegations of sexual assault against employees are ignored by businesses, negligence can be brought into play when the accused are still with a job. A lawsuit and compensation for damages are concepts that must be made known to victims of sexual assault in massage parlors when thinking about the next steps."
