Doctors Abusing Patients: Even After Nassar, Many People Still Vulnerable
It has been more than 2 years since the Indianapolis Star article that publicly leveled accusations of sexual abuse against Larry Nassar. During that time, our firm has assisted 111 brave survivors obtain compensation and healing, advocated to change Michigan’s sexual assault laws, and worked tirelessly to prevent tragedies like this from happening again. Although we have accomplished much, there is still much to do.
In spite of the extensive coverage of Nassar’s sexual abuse, reports show doctors continue to be accused of molesting their patients. On an almost daily basis, our firm is contacted by individuals who state their doctor has sexually assaulted them.
Just this week, we were retained by two young men (adults) who were groped and groomed by their male Sparrow internal medicine doctor, who may have given them false diagnoses to provide an excuse for continued treatment. This matter has been reported to the regulatory board and will be reported to local law enforcement. It is an honor and privilege to represent them to hold people in positions of authority accountable and to create awareness and change in our community.
