Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused by a Doctor

Attorney contributor, Marc Lenahan is an experienced lawyer who works with sexual abuse victims. In an interview, he shared some of his insight and knowledge on the rights of victims sexually abused by a medical professional.

"Doctors and all medical professionals are respected by their communities as intelligent people who carry themselves as experts at all times. Patients instill trust in doctors and look to them for proper guidance. Sadly, many doctors across the country abuse their bonds with their patients and act as predators."

"When medical professionals act inappropriately, our justice system is built to ensure that these individuals are prosecuted for their crimes. There are grounds for a civil lawsuit when patients are sexually abused by their doctors. Sexual misconduct by a doctor often results from negligence on behalf of an employer and their inability to prevent misconduct. In negligence cases, victims can file a civil lawsuit and can receive financial compensation for damages."
