Can I Sue If I Was Sexually Assaulted in an Ambulance? 

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced sexual assault lawyer representing victims sexually assaulted in California. Bobby recently explained the legal options available for victims sexually assaulted by an ambulance employee

"Too often, sexual assault occurs in the medical field due to the power and trust affiliated with medical professions. Even in ambulances, the workers have a moral and legal obligation to work in a professional manner. Knowing that sexual predators seek positions to abuse their authority and exploit victims, it is important that certain security measures are enforced to reduce the risk of abuse occurring. These measures, which should include background checks and proper reporting procedures, are to ensure the safety of their patients and staff. Without a sufficient safety plan, medical facilities and their transportation companies can be held accountable for negligence."

"In some situations of sexual abuse, the abuse is a result of a third party's negligence. Victims and their families should investigate if the medical facility took all reasonable precautions to prevent the abuse. If they were found to have neglected the safety or ignored previous reports of misconduct, they could be considered negligent. The victim may have sufficient legal grounds for a lawsuit and should retain the services of an experienced sexual abuse attorney."
