Legal Options of a Victim Sexually Abused During a Massage

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Below, Laurence provides legal commentary on the rights of victims sexually assaulted in a massage salon.

"The massage industry has struggled with numerous sexual assault cases as clients are extremely vulnerable. This abuse is a result of the easy access masseurs have to clients in massage parlors. Victims who massagers have abused in a spa should explore their legal options; they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."

"Massage spas have a legal obligation to protect their clients. Businesses have an obligation to ensure that the masseurs they hire are trustworthy and qualified. If massage spa owners do not have adequate security measures in place, they may be considered liable in sex abuse cases as a result of negligence. An example of negligence is if the spa failed to run proper background checks to ensure their masseurs were qualified. If a victim's lawyer can prove that the sexual abuse in the spa occurred due to negligence, the victim may have ground for a civil lawsuit."
