Along with a financial settlement or reward to compensate your injuries, losses, and suffering, by filing a lawsuit, you could change practices and standards that help to prevent what happened to you from happening to others.
Misconduct and violations of a sexual nature are unacceptable everywhere, especially in what should be the safe space of a doctor’s office. Patients walk in prepared to be fully honest, vulnerable, and examined, and doctors are expected to be trustworthy, professional, and methodical. A breach of this social contract when patients may be scared, drugged, or weakened by illness, is appalling.
