Sexual Abuse Connecticut Medical Professionals

Empowering Victims Of Sexual Abuse By Medical Personnel

Medical professionals or doctors who commit sexual abuse against helpless patients should be punished by our criminal justice system. Licensing boards can take action as well if a complaint is filed. Yet, prison sentences, sex offender registration and the loss of professional licenses do little, if anything to promote the healing of victims. The attorneys at Bartlett Legal Group focus on protecting the rights and looking out for the best interests of their clients victimized by a trusted doctor.

Giving Sexual Abuse Victims A Voice

Our goal is to transform something that was beyond your control into empowerment. At Bartlett Legal Group, attorney Frank Bartlett gives victims a voice. Nonconsensual sexual contact by a medical professional not only violates the American Medical Association’s Principles of Medical Ethics, but it also breaches trust placed in doctors, nurses or anesthetists.
The basis for civil action is determined by the Sexual Abuse or misuse of the relationship between a licensed health care provider and a patient. While being proactive in putting our clients in control by holding an abuser accountable through a legal claim, lawsuits are not always the initial step. During the initial confidential consultation, Mr. Bartlett discusses the need for treatment and counseling ahead of a complex and often lengthy legal process. Your well-being is the most important factor.

Experience

Attorney Bartlett has represented many sexual abuse victims over his career. He has brought numerous cases to trial and has successfully argued several cases before the Connecticut Appellate Court and the Connecticut Supreme Court. He served as lead counsel in one of the representative cases selected for trial in the largest sexual abuse case against a medical professional in Connecticut history. The case was against St. Francis Hospital whose head of endocrinology, Dr. George Reardon, photographed and fondled many of his young patients.  In 2007, Reardon’s hidden pornographic library of child patients was found in his former West Hartford home.
The majority of Attorney Bartlett’s sex abuse cases deal with adult victims of sexual abuse as children.  The abuse often happened many years ago and there may be very few records associated with the events.  Attorney Bartlett and his team of experts work together with you to piece together the facts and records.  If your case goes to trial we will not pass you on to another attorney. We have the trial experience to take your case to court and up through the appeals process if necessary. We will be by your side through the entire process. Continuity is critical.

We represent clients with sexual abuse by Boy Scout leaders, priests, medical professionals, teachers and others
