Justice For Doctor Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families
Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin is an experienced sex abuse victims lawyer who has represented several victims in sexual assault lawsuit against predatory doctors and negligent medical facilities. Here is Brian with some info on the legal rights of doctor sex abuse victims and their families:
Doctors are highly respected and trusted members of their communities, and most doctors are worthy of this trust. However, there have also been widespread reports of predatory doctors who have committed heinous sexual crimes against their patients. These predators must be held accountable for their crimes. Additionally, their victims deserve answers, support, and justice.
When a pediatrician is accused of sexually abusing child patients, those allegations must be taken seriously. It’s important to investigate both the doctor and the medical facility where the alleged assault occurred. In some cases, hospitals and other medical facilities are negligent in a way that enables their doctors to sexually abuse patients.
For example, a hospital could be considered negligent if they allowed a doctor to continue practicing even after facing several allegations of sexual misconduct or sexual abuse.
Victims of doctor sexual abuse have legal rights in both criminal and civil courts. In some cases, these victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the doctor and/or the medical facility where the abuse happened.
