Dr. Saeed Khan Charged with Battery For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting a Patient

Attorney Commentary: Sexual assault victim lawyer Michael Haggard will add legal commentary in the second part of this article and discuss a common question: can I sue for being sexually abused by a doctor?

Okeechobee physician Dr. Saeed Khan has been arrested and charged with battery for allegedly sexually assaulting one of his patients at his office.

The alleged victim, Teresa Chandler Bishop, spoke with ABC 25 WPBF about the alleged sexual assault. She says that she went to Bishop's office on February 25 and that he sexually assaulted her as she was leaving the office.

Bishop reported the incident to the police on May 4. She says she waited because she was in a state of shock over the alleged sexual assault.

She has also filed a complaint with the Florida Board of Medicine.

Khan is currently free on bond and no trial date has been set.

Lawsuits For Sexual Assaults by Doctors

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents victims of doctor sexual assault in civil lawsuits against doctors, hospitals, and medical facilities. We've asked Michael to discuss the legal options available to these victims:

Doctors are highly trusted, but sadly, not all doctors are trustworthy. There have been reports of doctors sexually assaulting patients in all 50 states. Victims of doctor sexual assault have legal rights, both by filing criminal charges and in some cases, sexual assault lawsuits.

If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted by a doctor, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against that doctor. In some cases, hospitals and other medical facilities can also be held liable for sexual assaults that happened on their properties.

You can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with one of our experienced sexual assault victim lawyers in a free consultation.
