Can I Sue If A Pediatrician Sexually Abused My Child? 

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced New York licensed attorney who represents sexual abuse victims and their families. Laurence recently discussed the legal rights of victims sexually abused by a pediatrician. He sought to answer the common question, "Can I sue if a pediatrician sexually abused my child?"

“Patients trust their doctors and expect our medical professionals to be respectful and act in a professional manner. Unfortunately, we have seen reports across the country of doctors abusing their positions of power and trust to sexually abuse their patients. However, the offices that employ the doctors and the board that certifies them have a duty of care to ensure their backgrounds are properly for any history of misconduct. Furthermore, they are responsible for ensuring that all reports are investigated, and misconduct is taken seriously to prevent further abuse. Failure to abide by this legal commitment could cause them to be liable in the case of sexual abuse.”

“Sexual misconduct by a medical professional, like a pediatrician, is often the result of negligence. In some cases, the doctor's employer may be considered negligent if they failed to prevent sexual abuse. Victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit and receive compensation for their abuse.”
