Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused at a Massage Parlor

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has represented numerous victims of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian provides insight into the legal rights of victims sexually abused during a massage.

"The massage industry continues to struggle with sexual abuse cases due to the extreme vulnerability of the client during the massage. Spas have a legal obligation to uphold their clients' safety and must do everything possible to prevent crimes from happening. If a victim has been abused in a spa, they should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the business."

"Businesses must ensure the people working in their spas are both trustworthy and qualified. However, if an owner does not follow proper precautions, they may be considered liable in cases of abuse as a result of negligence. An example of negligence is if prior misconduct complaints were filed against a masseuse, but they were still permitted to work. In such cases, victims might have grounds for a lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."
