Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted by Medical Staff

Attorney commentator, Kevin Biniazan, has represented victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. We’ve asked Kevin to share insight on the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted by hospice care workers:

“Patients naturally trust medical professionals and assistants. Medical facility employees are trusted to provide the quality care that patients need while treating them with respect. Unfortunately, there have been many cases of abuse in this field as untrustworthy people are hired to work with vulnerable patients.”

“When a medical facility employee sexually assaults a victim, they should report their assault immediately and acquire the services of an experienced sexual assault lawyer. The facility should be investigated to determine if there were sufficient protections in place to prevent the sexual assault of patients by employees. Some sexual assaults by staff are preventable and occur as a result of the facility’s negligence. For example, a facility may be considered negligent for failing to monitor performance reviews, ignoring misconduct complaints, or failing to run background checks. In such cases, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”
