Can I Sue For Being Sexually Assaulted by a Chiropractor?

Mike Pfau, an experienced doctor sexual abuse lawyer, helps victims find justice by bringing forth civil lawsuits against doctors and any other negligent medical facilities. We’ve asked Bobby to add some of his thoughts regarding the legal rights of chiropractor patients who have been sexually abused by their doctor.

Bobby stated, “Chiropractors and other medical professionals are highly trusted by their patients. Usually, this trust is warranted. However, there have also been far too many cases of doctors sexually assaulting patients throughout the country. Patients who have been sexually assaulted by doctors have legal rights and it’s important for them to be well aware of them. Filing a police report so that a criminal investigation can take place is an important first step for victims. And yet, the criminal justice system is not the only way for victims to find justice. In many cases, victims of sexual assault by doctors may also have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the doctor. Sometimes, even hospitals and other medical facilities can also be held responsible for negligence if they failed in their duty to prevent such abhorrent abuse from taking place.”
