If you have been abused by a doctor or another medical professional, you are not alone. Medical sex abuse is a serious problem in our country. It’s too easy for medical professionals to use their position to abuse patients. Hospital administrators often don’t seriously investigate accusations of abuse.
Abused By Your Doctor? We'll Fight For Justice.
Coming forward and breaking the silence is the most crucial step in stopping those medical professionals who violate a patient’s rights and trust.
Victims of sexual abuse or sexual assault have the right to sue the individual, the institution, or company that should have done something to prevent the sexual abuse from happening. These rights are different than criminal prosecution. Although an individual may have committed the terrible act of sex abuse, the company or institution that employed them may be held liable regardless of whether they knew about the abuse.
We also maintain a website that tracks medical sex abuse nationwide.
Your Right to Remain Anonymous
If you are a victim of sexual abuse, you can break the silence and remain anonymous. In criminal cases, your real name is used before the Grand Jury and with regard to any indictment or trial. But in civil cases, initials or “Jane Doe” are often used in formal filings with the Court, preserving your safety and privacy.
Over the years, we have represented dozens of victims. None of our clients have had their identity revealed to the public without their explicit permission. Some have chosen to identify themselves because of the particular circumstances of their case.
