Justice for Victims of Doctor Sexually Assault

Attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, is an experienced lawyer for sexual abuse by a doctor in California. Michael has represented numerous assault victims in civil lawsuits. During an interview, he provided commentary on the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted by a doctor.

"Patients expect their doctors to carrying themselves in a professional manner. The doctor-patient relationship is built on trust and power. However, we see cases that involve doctors abusing their positions taking advantage of their vulnerable patients. The justice system makes it possible for medical professionals to be held accountable for such heinous crimes."

"Medical facilities have a legal duty to uphold the safety of their patients and staff. Sexual misconduct by medical professionals is often the result of negligence. Sometimes, the professional's employer may be considered negligent if they fail to prevent sexual abuse. For example, if previous misconduct complaints were filed against a doctor or medical professional yet, they were still permitted to examine patients. In negligence cases like these, victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit and receive compensation for their abuse."
