Sexual Abuse Can Happen To Anyone
In the past few years, more and more people have come out as sexual abuse survivors. This has illustrated the fact that it can happen to anybody. However, you do not have to be a victim. You can seek legal recourse with the help of an attorney.
Umina Legal is a Morgantown-area firm that believes in holding wrongdoers accountable. We have the fighting spirit necessary to take those responsible to court and get the compensation you deserve after suffering.
Medical Professionals Can Be Untrustworthy
Many people have a preconception of what sexual abuse entails, particularly regarding in what types of relationships it occurs. For example, many people think of sexual harassment as occurring in the workplace. This does happen, but another huge instance is between doctors and patients.
We trust doctors, but sometimes doctors and other medical practitioners, including chiropractors, take advantage and do things like:
- Conduct inappropriate exams, involving body parts unrelated to symptoms
- Prescribe opiates, then when patient needs them or is addicted, trades opiates for sexual favors
- Indecent exposure towards patients
- Inappropriate touching and examination while patient is sedated or under anesthesia
Having a doctor hurt you like this is traumatizing. Hold them accountable in court, with our help. We are discreet, ensuring that each case is filed under a pseudonym as necessary. Yet, within court, we will fight aggressively to make sure the perpetrator is held accountable and you get the most favorable outcome possible.
