Although sexual abuse by health care professionals is considered rare, the abuse must still be addressed. No medical professional is immune from being held accountable for the sexual abuse of his or her patients or clients. In a hospital or medical setting, patients put their trust in doctors or other healthcare professionals and that trust should never be violated. If you have been sexually assaulted or abused by one of the following health care professionals, you may have a civil case and could receive monetary compensation:
- Massage Therapists
- Mental Health Counselors
- Nursing home employees
- Juvenile Detention Center Employees
- Physical Therapists
The perpetrators may have already been charged and sentenced for their crimes in a criminal proceeding. However, a criminal trial doesn't provide your family with the necessary financial compensation for healing and trauma that can be secured through a civil lawsuit.
