As sexual abuse— including those committed by medical professionals like psychotherapists- remains unreported, Abuse Guardian wants to be part of changing this negative trend. The sensitive nature of such abuse, coupled with potential power imbalances, may prevent you from seeking help. Recognizing this problem, Abuse Guardian provides preliminary consultations, helping you understand the legal options available to you.
Atty. Beightol brings 25 years of legal expertise to the role, covering both personal injury and healthcare-related cases. As the founding partner of Edwards Beightol, she can help you sue for compensation, including for medical bills, future treatments, lost income, and pain and suffering. In appointing Atty. Beightol, Abuse Guardian expands its nationwide network of allied lawyers to 15.
MOLESTATION BY PSYCHOLOGISTS: PREVALENT BUT KEPT SILENT
In research surveys, 9 to 12% of mental health professionals admit to having sexual relations with their patients. As an article from The Boston Globe notes, however, this figure may actually be an underestimate. This is a clear violation of their duties as doctors as they take advantage of power dynamics and the vulnerability of patients under their care.
ADVOCATING FOR VICTIMS OF PSYCHOTHERAPIST SEX ABUSE
Atty. Beightol understands that you may be afraid to sue your psychologist but stresses that doing so can prevent others from being victimized. She is adept at establishing breach of duty, causation, and damages, crucial elements for successful claims. Her legal expertise extends beyond individual perpetrators, holding medical institutions accountable for their negligence in protecting patients or failure to report abuse.
