Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Assault by Massage Therapists

Attorney contributor  Kevin Biniazin is currently representing dozens of women in sexual assault lawsuits against massage businesses, including nationwide chain Massage Envy. Kevin has offered to add a few thoughts regarding the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by massage therapists:

The professional relationship between a massage business and their clients is built on trust. Because of the fact that massage therapists will be alone with clients who are in vulnerable positions, these businesses must make sure that all employees are safe and trustworthy people. But sadly, sexual assault by massage therapists is a major problem across the United States.

When a customer reports being sexually assaulted during a massage session, it’s important to investigate both the accused employee and the business itself. In some cases, these businesses are partially to blame for failing to prevent the sexual assault because of negligence. For example, a business might be considered negligent if they had ignored previous complaints of sexual misconduct involving the employee which could result in a massage therapist sexual assault lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted by a massage therapist, you can learn more about your legal rights by speaking with an experienced sexual assault victims attorney in a free consultation.
