Gynecologist Sex Abuse Lawyers

Amplifying the Voices of Abused Gynecological Patients

Levy Konigsberg is currently hearing from women across the country who have been victimized by sexual abuse carried out by their gynecologists. In recent years, many women have come forth to describe inexcusable acts of sexual abuse and molestation under the guise of medical care. There is evidence that the medical institutions employing these abusers enabled the abuse to take place over many decades. For the victims, it is now time to take legal action and demand compensation and justice.

Gynecologists hold positions of trust that are critical to the health of women. While most gynecologists honor that trust, recent lawsuits and cases have shown that some gynecologists have betrayed that trust by sexually abusing their patients. We know that the thought of filing a claim against your abuser can be a difficult step, which is why we promise to approach the case with sensitivity, respect, and confidentiality. Your privacy and comfort will always be in focus as we work on your case.

Please contact us online or dial (800) 315-3806 now for more information about filing a gynecologist sex abuse claim. We help clients nationwide.

Gynecologist Abuse in the News

Many women understandably hesitate to come forth with allegations of sexual abuse carried out by their own gynecologists even when the abuse is clear and has caused suffering and psychological trauma. You should know that several gynecologist abuse lawsuits in recent years have been successful and have helped bring justice to women across the country. These important cases also benefit the public by holding these abusive doctors accountable for their outrageous acts while helping to prevent sexual abuse by gynecologists in future patients.

Two noteworthy and recent gynecologist abuse lawsuits are:

  • Dr. Robert Hadden: Former gynecologist Robert Hadden was accused by dozens of women who were his former patients, including Evelyn Yang, wife of former presidential candidate Andrew Yang. Each said that he preyed upon his patients during events that took place between 1993 and 2012, and while he worked at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. The two hospital systems agreed to settle 79 of the lawsuits with a $71.5 million settlement pool.
  • Dr. James Heaps: Former UCLA gynecologist James Heaps was accused of sexual abuse by more than 200 women across dozens of cases. Accusations against Heaps date back to the ‘90s, with most women stating that he hid his intentions behind professional courtesy and kindness. However, as more and more unnecessary gynecological and breast examinations and procedures were carried out across the decades, it became undeniable that Heaps was sexually molesting his patients all along. UCLA agreed to settle those allegations with a $243.6 million settlement fund.

How a Lawsuit Can Help

For those that have been victimized, the importance of filing a gynecologist sex abuse lawsuit cannot be overstated. Your claim or lawsuit – whether it joins many others in a mass tort or class action – could be what exposes a sexual predator to the public, removes them from their position of authority, and protects other patients from suffering the same or similar abuses in the future.

At the same time, it is important to also understand the benefits of securing a financial award or settlement from your abuser and/or the medical institution that enabled or harbored them. Gaining a tangible monetary award from a successful lawsuit can help you find financial stability and a sense of closure, which is crucial for the healing process.

New York Adult Survivors Act

Please note: The New York Adult Survivors Act, which has been recently enacted into law, creates a temporary one-year window for certain adult sexual abuse survivors to take legal action against their abusers, even if previous statutes of limitations had prevented it. This law may allow you to seek justice for gynecological sexual abuse that happened years in the past. You should call (800) 315-3806 right away to discuss your legal options with our attorneys. Again, your opportunity to demand justice and compensation from the abuser and the institute that protected them could be incredibly limited, so you must act quickly.
