Dr. Ricardo Cruciani Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

New York Sexual Abuse Lawyers Against Dr. Cruciani

Dr. Ricardo Cruciani was convicted of sexually assaulting seven women in Pennsylvania. Recently, he has been convicted by a New York City jury of predatory sexual assault, sexual abuse, attempted rape, rape, and criminal sexual acts in connection with six patients who sought medical expertise from Cruciani to treat chronic and debilitating pain disorders. Dr. Ricardo Cruciani has faced sexual abuse accusations from patients as far back as 2002. The recently enacted Adult Survivors Act could give Cruciani’s sex abuse victims in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania a chance to demand justice and compensation through civil lawsuits.

Accusations Against Dr. Ricardo Cruciani

Ricardo Cruciani was a neurologist with an advanced specialization in pain syndromes that were rarely understood by similar practitioners. This high level of comprehension and expertise made him the only available doctor to treat many patients who could not get help anywhere else. He uses this heightened position of power and authority to sexually harass, exploit, and abuse an unknown number of patients. Most of his victims have reported that they felt they had no choice but to let him sexually abuse them so that he would continue to treat them.

Indecent, illegal, and sexually abusive acts carried out by Cruciani against his patients include:

  • Unwanted touching
  • Unwelcome kissing
  • Groping
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Sexual harassment

It is believed that Ricardo Cruciani—who is no longer technically a doctor after surrendering his medical license in 2017 when allegations against him first surfaced—has sexually abused his patients for at least 15 years. Most of his patients were aged between 30 and 55, the ages when neurological and pain disorders can become more apparent.

Penalties Used Against Ricardo Cruciani

After surrendering his medical license, Ricardo Cruciani was charged with 35 felony counts in Pennsylvania, including rape and aggravated sexual abuse. In 2022, a New York City jury found Dr. Ricardo Cruciani, 68, guilty of one count predatory sexual assault, one count of sexual abuse, one count attempted rape, two counts of rape and seven counts of criminal sexual act in connection to six patients who sought medical expertise to treat chronic and debilitating pain disorders. Cruciani will be sentenced for these crimes on September 14, 2022.

Ricardo Cruciani has not yet been penalized civilly, though. Thanks to the Adult Survivors Act, civil action can soon be taken against him.

Important notes about the Adult Survivors Act of New York:

  • Lookback window: It creates a lookback window that begins on November 24th, 2022, and closes on November 24th, 2023. During this time, sexual abuse victims can bring civil claims against Dr. Ricardo Cruciani.
  • Removed statute of limitations: The lookback window allows individuals to sue abusers, as well as employers or institutions associated with the abuser, even if the statute of limitations on those claims have previously expired. For example, if you were sexually abused by Dr. Cruciani as far back as 2008, well beyond the former statute of limitations in New York for such cases, you will have a renewed opportunity to file a claim anyway within the lookback window.

Money can’t undo his terrible acts but pursuing civil action can help you find closure and a sense of justice. You deserve every chance you can get to try to put the aftermath of his abuse behind you. Let Levy Konigsberg stand up for you.

Cruciani’s Employers Might Be Liable, Too

Many civil sex abuse lawsuits filed against Dr. Ricardo Cruciani have also targeted his former employers as defendants. It has been alleged that physicians and medical institutions knew that Cruciani was sexually abusing his patients. Yet no action was taken to investigate the situation and prevent further harm.

If these allegations are proven true, then Dr. Cruciani’s former employers could be directly liable for many instances of his sexual abuse. We can determine who should be named as defendants in your sexual abuse lawsuit against Cruciani, so you don’t need to worry about these details yourself.
