What Is Medical Sexual Misconduct?

Put simply, medical sexual misconduct is any unwanted or unwelcome sexual contact between a medical provider and a patient. Medical sexual misconduct can occur in any setting—a hospital, doctor’s office, OBGYN’s office, etc.—and can be carried out by any type of medical professional, from a delivery room doctor to an obstetrician to a midwife.

Because of the nature of many examinations and treatments involving pregnant women, it can be difficult to determine when sexual misconduct has occurred. Many women remain silent about situations that made them uncomfortable as a result of being unsure whether what they experienced was truly abuse.

Let us be clear: any type of unwanted sexual contact is never okay, even when the perpetrator is a medical professional. Additionally, it is never the victim’s fault when this happens.

What Is the Purpose of Filing a Medical Malpractice/Birth Injury Lawsuit?

If you were the victim of medical sexual misconduct, you have likely suffered a certain degree of physical and emotional harm. In some cases, sexual misconduct can also result in harm to the unborn child. A medical malpractice lawsuit is a civil (as opposed to criminal) action that seeks rightful compensation for your damages. Depending on your specific case, “damages” may include things like medical bills for treatment required as a result of the abuse, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.

While no amount of financial compensation can ever “make up” for what you have endured, a fair recovery can provide you with a much-needed sense of justice and allow you the ability to care for yourself and your child.
