Lawyers prevail in sexual assault claim at massage facility

The trial lawyers at Brown & Charbonneau, LLP prevailed in another sexual assault claim against a nationwide chain of massage therapy facilities.

Brown & Charbonneau, LLP recently obtained a significant monetary settlement for its client in a case involving sexual assault during a massage. B&C’s client was a female that was sexually assaulted by a male massuese during a massage at one facility of a nationwide chain of massage facilities.  The extremely high settlement was obtained quickly in light of the potential exposure and negative publicity that the company faced.  The defendant massage therapy company insisted on a confidentiality provision, so the details of the wrongful conduct cannot be revealed here.  Defendants in these types of cases typically insist on confidentiality to prevent news of these horrendous acts becoming public record thereby keeping their wrongful conduct hidden.  B&C has evidence of wrongful conduct dating back to 2014.  If you have been sexually assaulted or want to talk to a lawyer about sexual assault, contact the sexual assault lawyers at Brown & Charbonneau, LLP at 714.505.3000 or 866.237.8129 or email to set up a consultation or speak to an experienced sexual assault attorney.
