Legal Options for Victims of Doctor Sexual Assault

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com is a former sex crimes prosecutor who now directly represents sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits. We’ve asked Brian to share some general information on the legal rights of patients who have been sexually assaulted by doctors:

Doctors are highly esteemed professionals who are trusted by their patients. Most doctors are worthy of this trust – but unfortunately, there have also been many cases of sexual predators practicing as doctors and other medical professionals. In fact, there have been reports of doctors sexually assaulting patients in all 50 states.

Sexual assaults committed by doctors not only traumatize the victims, they also damage the community’s trust in medical professionals as a whole. These predators must be held criminally responsible for their heinous crimes. Additionally, their victims should be aware of their legal rights in both criminal and civil courts.

In many cases, victims of doctor sexual assaults may have grounds for a lawsuit against their doctor and possibly the facility where the assault occurred. Taking legal action this way can help provide financial compensation for damages related to the trauma caused by the sexual assault. Additionally, a lawsuit can demand accountability from predatory doctors and negligent third parties, such as hospitals that have failed to protect their patients.
