Legal Options For Victims of Massage Therapist Sexual Assault
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com has represented several victims of massage therapist sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal options available to these victims:
The massage therapy industry has a serious problem with sexual assault. There have been hundreds of reported incidents of massage therapists sexually assaulting their clients throughout the country. Many of these victims have responded not just by contacting the police, but also by filing lawsuits against massage therapy businesses for failing to keep their customers safe.
Some cases of massage therapist sexual assault are preventable and only happen due to negligence. For example, a massage studio could be considered negligent if other customers had filed complaints about inappropriate behavior by a massage therapist but those complaints went ignored. In cases of negligence, victims of massage therapist sexual assault may have grounds for a lawsuit.
