Michigan Doctor Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients in sexual abuse cases against doctors, hospitals, and clinics.  These cases are often pursued against physicians, dentists, and psychologists.  In a medical malpractice case involving inappropriate sexual contact, it is the abuse or misuse of the relationship of trust between the medical provider and the patient which gives the legal basis for filing a civil lawsuit. Criminal charges are often pursued by the prosecutors in these cases as well. Simply put, doctors and other medical professionals are not allowed to have sexual relationships with patients.  When a doctor-patient relationship exists, there is no circumstance that would allow a doctor to have sex with a patient.  Even if the doctor later claims that sexual contact was consensual with the patient, this is completely unjustifiable and unlawul.

Proving Sexual Abuse By Doctors

It is necessary to prove that a sexual relationship or sexual abuse occurred between the doctor and the patient.  Many times, there is no physical evidence to prove that this happened and there are no eyewitnesses to these acts.  It then becomes a "he said, she said" battle between the two sides and credibility of each person is a big factor in determining what actually happened.  Often, there may have been similar complaints about a doctor by other woman and those went ignored or not properly investigated.  Evidence of other similar acts can help prove and win a case.  Also, any physical evidence that could prove it happened would strongly support a case.

Damages In Doctor Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Doctor sex abuse cases can have significant damages.  These include include non-economic damages such as emotional distress, but also can include significant economic damages such as ongoing therapy and medication needs, and a loss of earning capacity, wage loss or loss of services. In addition, the patient's spouse may have have his own claim for loss of society and companionship and loss of consortium, as well as the disruption of the family.
