The Legal Rights of Massage Therapist Sexual Assault Victims
Attorney contributor Brian Kent and the team of attorneys at AbuseGuardian.com have helped dozens of individuals file lawsuits for massage therapist sexual abuse. This law firm has filed multiple lawsuits against nationwide chain Massage Envy in California, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and North Carolina. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal options of massage sexual assault victims:
Massage therapy is an industry that requires a high degree of trust between employees and their customers. There is a high potential for sexual abuse in this field, as massage therapists are often alone with clients while the clients are in vulnerable positions. Massage businesses must do all in their power to make sure that their employees are trustworthy and that their customers are safe.
When a massage therapist sexually assaults a client, the client has legal options that can help provide justice. In cases of negligence, the massage therapist or their employer may be held liable if the client decides to file a lawsuit. For example, a massage business might be considered negligent if the assaulter was hired without a background check or if the owner of the business committed the crime.
