What Is Doctor Sexual Misconduct? What Are the Signs of Doctor Sex Abuse?
Doctor sexual misconduct refers to a wide range of sex crimes and inappropriate behaviors of a sexual nature between a doctor and his or her patient. It can refer to overt crimes such as rape and drug-induced rape, as well as sexual misconduct that may be more difficult to detect, such as a doctor touching a patient inappropriately under the guise of medical care. Doctor sex abuse can affect adult patients as well as children. Signs that your child is experiencing sexual abuse by a doctor or pediatrician can include:
- Signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, such as nightmares or bedwetting.
- Fear or anxiety about visiting a doctor or pediatrician.
- Pain or injuries to the genital area.
- Unusual knowledge or curiosity about sexual subjects.
- Withdrawal or isolation from others.
- Loss of interest in favorite hobbies or activities.
- Unexplained weight gain or weight loss.
- Behavioral or personality changes.
- Suicidal thoughts, tendencies or actions.
If you are a victim of doctor sexual misconduct or believe that your child is a victim of this heinous crime in Monterey, take legal action with assistance from our attorneys. We will review your case and carefully investigate the doctor or physician to collect key evidence to support your sexual assault or abuse case. We can go up against any medical center, emergency room or care facility to demand justice on your behalf.
Compensation Available for Doctor Sexual Abuse in California
Filing a civil lawsuit against a doctor who sexually assaulted you or a loved one is about much more than making a financial recovery. It is your opportunity to shed light on this crime in your community and to potentially make medical care safer for future patients. It is also a chance to obtain justice and accountability for the heinous crime that you endured. However, we also understand how much a fair monetary recovery can change a victim’s life after this type of trauma.
As a sex abuse survivor, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation for your past and future related medical costs including therapies, counseling and medications. You could also qualify for compensation for lost wages, legal fees, and travel or transportation. Noneconomic damages are also available, such as for your emotional pain and suffering, mental anguish, psychological trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety. Discuss the value of your sexual assault lawsuit with our attorneys before accepting a settlement.
