Justice in the Aftermath of a Sexual Assault by a Physician

A Physician Sexual Assault Victim Lawyer from The Doan Law Firm Fights for You

One of the most horrific violations of trust occurs when a patient is sexually assaulted by a doctor. If you or a loved one are a physician sexual assault victim, you need to understand the steps you need to take to fully protect your legal rights and interests.

A starting point for you is to contact The Doan Law Firm physician sexual assault hotline at (800) 349-0000. The hotline is staffed by compassionate, caring professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. You can obtain basic information through the hotline. You can also schedule an initial consultation with an appointment with a sexual assault victim lawyer from The Doan Law Firm.

File a Complaint with Physician's Licensing Authority

Part of protecting your legal rights is promptly filing a complaint with the doctor's licensing authority in your state. Each state has its own agency that oversees a doctor's license, credentials, and conduct.

Typically, a person who has been victimized by a physician can file a complaint online. This initiates the process of investing your doctor's conduct.

File a Police Report

You also need to promptly file a police report. A physician who sexually assaults a patient is guilty of a very serious crime.

Many police and sheriff's departments maintain online crime report portals. However, due to the highly serious nature of this crime, you need to call the police or sheriff's department and explain what has occurred.

There is not doubt that a crime involving sexual assault is challenging to discuss. Keep in mind that law enforcement officials have experience in dealing with people who have been sexually assaulted.

File an Insurance Claim

If you desire to pursue a claim and even a civil lawsuit to recover compensation for the injuries and losses you sustained as a result of a sexual assault, you will also need to file an insurance claim as part of that process.

An insurance claim will be filed with a physician's insurance company. If the sexual assault occurred in a hospital, you likely will also file a claim against the medical center's insurance company as well.

Do not operate under the assumption that an insurance company will "be on your side." Even when you've been sexually assaulted by an insurance company's insured physician, an insurance company is in business for one primary reason. An insurer exists to make money for its stockholders. Thus, even in a situation in which someone like you makes a claim arising out of being sexually assaulted, an insurance company will do everything in its power to limit the amount of money paid out in a claim.

The Importance of Experienced Legal Representation

The manner in which an insurance company can be expected to handle a claim based on a claim of physician sexual assault underscores the importance of being proactive in retaining legal assistance, like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm. Indeed, you should not agree to discuss your claim with a representative of an insurance company until you have discussed your case with a compassionate, skilled physician sexual assault victim lawyer.

Justice in Your Case

Our attorneys understand how difficult your situation is after being sexually victimized by a doctor or other healthcare provider. We will fight tirelessly on your behalf to obtain the compensation you deserve. The financial recovery in a physician sexual assault case depends on the circumstances surrounding the attack on you.

With that said, we typically seek compensation for injuries, damages, and losses that include:

  • medical bills and expenses
  • emotional distress and mental anguish
  • pain and suffering
  • lost income

We fight to ensure that you obtain all the compensation to which you are entitled. For example, you may experience chronic mental anguish and emotional distress in to the future. You may experience other ongoing emotional and mental health issues associated with the assault. These may include PTSD and depression.
