New York Massage Therapist Sex Assault Lawsuits

Like the civil laws in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, New York law allows massage therapy businesses to be held liable when a massage therapist sexually assaults a client during a massage. This applies to all types of businesses which offer massages including physical therapy businesses, spas, wellness centers, etc.

In a sex assault lawsuit against a business owner, the injured party must prove that the defendant (business owner) had knowledge of the problem beforehand or at the very least, should have known about it. Proper investigation is crucial in these cases. It’s critical to investigate prior complaints made against the therapist or other employees. In addition, the business’ policies, procedures and practices become important. Did the business have a policy for reporting acts of sexual misconduct? If and when any such reports came in, what did the business do internally to deal with the report?

Financial Compensation

Oftentimes, victims of assault by a massage therapist in New York can receive financial compensation for their mental and emotional suffering. Victims of sexual assault often sustain long-lasting symptoms. Depending on the extent of the assault, some individuals suffer debilitating depression or anxiety. New York law allows a sex assault victim to be compensated for pain and suffering.
