Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused by a Doctor

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced lawyer who works with victims of sexual abuse. Below he shared some of his thoughts on the rights of victims sexually abused by a medical professional.

"Patients trust their doctors and expect them to carry themselves professionally. The doctor-patient relationship is built on respect and trust. Unfortunately, we have seen some doctors abuse their relationships with their patients across the country and acted as predators."

"The justice system ensures that medical professionals that act inappropriately are prosecuted for their crimes. However, victims sexually abused by a doctor should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. Often, sexual misconduct that occurs by a doctor is a result of the negligence of an employer failing to prevent misconduct. When negligence is involved in a case, victims can file a civil lawsuit and may receive financial compensation for damages."
