During a tenure of almost 30 years as the only gynecologist at the University of Southern California (USC), Dr. George Tyndall allegedly mistreated and abused patients. You may be able to sue Dr. Tyndall or USC for sexual abuse if you or a loved one was a patient of Dr. Tyndall between 1989 and 2016, and were on the receiving end of his inappropriate services.
How Do I Know If I Am Eligible for Compensation?
Dr. Tyndall had numerous complaints filed against him over his 30-year career at USC. Despite USC knowing about these complaints, the university continued to let him practice and see patients. He saw numerous patients per day, meaning a large number of women were potentially affected by his inappropriate actions.
The allegations against Dr. Tyndall include the following behaviors:
- Inappropriate touching during medical exams;
- Taking photographs during exam sessions;
- Using sexually suggestive language and verbiage;
- Using racial terms and language during exams;
- Asking inappropriate questions not related to the medical exam; and
- Making inappropriate requests during medical exams.
If you experienced any of these inappropriate acts during an appointment or exam with Dr. Tyndall at USC, you might be eligible to file a lawsuit for compensation.
Additionally, because USC knew about these complaints about Dr. Tyndall’s inappropriate actions and did nothing to correct the situation, the university might be liable for Dr. Tyndall’s abuse.
If you or a loved one filed any complaints with USC about the inappropriate sexual acts of Dr. Tyndall, you might also be eligible to recover compensation.
