There is a tremendous amount of faith and hope we put into health care providers to care for our loved ones. Most medical personnel are caring, trustworthy professionals, but those who commit sexual abuse can do considerable emotional and physical damage. As people in positions of power who are serving a vulnerable population, physicians can easily abuse their power.
Medical providers, whether they are facilities or individuals, may be liable if patients are sexually abused in their facilities or by their staff. We can make claims against a facility such as a hospital, clinic or nursing home for negligent hiring practices, failure to screen employees and volunteers, lack of supervision and inadequate security.
If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted while in a medical facility, or by a doctor or other medical professional, we may be able to help you seek justice. At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, we have the experience and resources to investigate and prosecute medical facilities, and individual professionals. We prepare your case to take on this fight and relentlessly pursue compensation on your behalf.
