Health Care Victim Abuse Lawyers
Our attorneys routinely represent victims that are sexually abused in nursing homes, hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other health care facilities.
We trust health care providers to look after our welfare, and that of our children and loved ones. We expect them to be places of healing, rather than abuse. Unfortunately, sexual predators prey on vulnerable adults and children seeking medical attention.
If you or someone you know has suffered sexual abuse or assault at the hands of a health care provider, please don’t stay silent. Andreozzi + Foote can help you fight back and ensure that the perpetrators pay for their crimes. Call us at 866-311-8640 or reach us online.
Hospital, Nursing Home And Doctor Sexual Abuse
Patients entrust hospitals, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, and other healthcare providers to care for the sick.
Massage Therapist Sexual Abuse
Massage therapists have a unique opportunity to commit sexual assaults given the intimate level of access they have to their clients. Sadly, there are countless reports of massage therapists committing sexual abuse and assault.
Many major massage chains know of the risk of sexual assault by massage therapists but do not do enough to protect people from abuse and assault.
Residential Facility Sexual Abuse
Residential facilities house children in a variety of contexts. Some children go for behavioral or mental health treatment, or if convicted of a juvenile criminal offense. Other children reside in group homes if they lack other family or caregivers. Children should be safe in these facilities.
Children in residential facilities are vulnerable to sexual abuse due to drug and alcohol issues, sexual issues, behavioral problems, psychiatric and mental health problems, and previous abuse or neglect.
Unfortunately, sexual predators prey on vulnerable children in residential facilities. We have experience handling cases against residential treatment facilities who fail to protect children from harm on their watch.
Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Sexual Abuse
Our lawyers have extensive experience handling cases brought against rehab facilities that fail to protect their patients in recovery from sexual abuse and assault.
Psychiatric Treatment Facility Sexual Abuse
Psychiatric patients are among the most vulnerable class of individuals in society. Tragically, many patients in psychiatric facilities are prior sexual abuse victims. Many are also sexually abused and assaulted while in psychiatric facilities, like behavioral health units or psychiatric hospitals.
Sexual predators prey on the vulnerability of people in psychiatric facilities. It is the facilities’ job to prevent such abuse. State law typically dictates how psychiatric facilities are supposed to supervise patients, such as regular bed checks. These guidelines are often violated.
If you are in need of legal representation, or have been a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a health care provider, please don’t wait to seek justice.
