What Do I Do If Sexually Assaulted by a Masseuse?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, a sexual assault lawyer in California, has represented many individuals in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, he shared his expertise on what to do if sexually assaulted during a massage or spa treatment.

“Reports of sexual assault in massage businesses have been reported all over the country. Clients are often put in vulnerable situation, as masseuses have access to them that can be easily abused. Victims of abuse by a masseuse should know their legal rights. If the massage business is found to be at fault, the victim may be able to file a civil lawsuit for financial compensation.”

“Massage center owners have a responsibility to keep their clients safe from preventable dangers, like sex abuse. To do this, they must hire trustworthy therapists and run thorough background checks on all staff members. If owners fail to do this, and a masseuse sexually assaults a client, they may be considered negligent and held liable. Additionally, if previous complaints were made and no steps were taken to improve security, this can also be considered negligence. In such cases, the victim may have grounds to bring a civil lawsuit and receive compensation. Victims are encouraged to speak to an experienced sexual abuse lawyer to learn more about their rights to justice."
