The Adult Survivors Act lookback window opens November 24. To learn more, visit Survivors Law Project.
When we visit medical professionals, we are often at our most vulnerable. Whether going through trying periods of illness or a routine check-up, we have the right to trust our doctors and to feel safe. Those who abuse this trust by assaulting, humiliating or harassing their patients are among the worst types of offenders.
If you are abused by a medical professional, or even feeling confused about what happened, call us. Serial abusers are master gaslighters and many of them have perfected the art of plausible deniability. Trust your instincts. Do not feel guilty, and do not feel alone. We can help.Let’s Connect
In NYC, Black women are eight times more likely to die of pregnancy- and childbirth-related complications than white women. Race disparities persist even after educational and economic factors are controlled for; statistically, the most educated and privileged Black woman will fare worse than the least resourced, least educated white woman. The CDC estimates that more than half of all maternal deaths were fully preventable. So what is happening? We’ve learned from practicing discrimination law that the problem is simple: We, as a society, do not listen to women, especially women of color. Crumiller handles medical malpractice cases, using civil rights claims, on behalf of women of color who are mistreated during labor and delivery.
