Sexual Misconduct Claims Against Therapists

Did you know that Tennessee has a specific statute addressing sex abuse claims against therapists?

The "Therapist Sexual Misconduct Victims Compensation Act" is set forth in T.C.A. Sec. 29-26-201 et seq. A "therapist" is defined as "any person who performs therapy regardless of whether the person is licensed by the state." "Therapy" is also a defined term, and includes marital counseling, substance abuse treatment, family counseling, and other treatment.   The statute of limitations is the most generous of any personal injury claim in Tennessee.
