Lawyers for Patients of Dr. Nikita Levy at Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Medical Center
The personal injury lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential lawsuits for former patients of Dr. Nikita Levy who received gynecological or obstetrical treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital’s East Baltimore Medical Center.
Financial compensation may be available through a lawsuit for women who were photographed or videotaped during OB/GYN treatment with Dr. Nikita Levy.
According to information released on February 18, Dr. Nikita Levy has taken photographs and video of patients and other individuals at the East Baltimore Medical Center without their knowledge or consent.
Dr. Levy reportedly treated about 1,000 patients since he started his practice at the Johns Hopkins community clinic in 1988.
At this time, it is unclear how many women the OB/GYN photographed or videotaped, but any former patients of Dr. Levy should contact our lawyers for a free consultation to make sure their rights are protected.
Dr. Nikita Levy Lawsuits Against Johns Hopkins for Privacy Violations
According to Johns Hopkins, Levy’s activities were exposed after a colleague reported suspicious activity to the hospital’s security staff. The hospital confirmed that Levy was illegally photographing and videotaping patients and fired him on February 8. On February 18, he was found dead in his home in Baltimore from an apparent suicide.
Police indicate they have uncovered an “extraordinary” amount of evidence that Dr. Nikita Levy violated patient rights, and all former patients are being urged to come forward.
Videotaping and photographing patients secretly is illegal and a violation of individuals’ privacy rights. Women should be able to go to their gynecologist without fear that they will be secretly photographed, most likely for sexual purposes.
Johns Hopkins sent a letter earlier this month to Dr. Nikita Levy’s patients, informing them that their care would be switched to another healthcare provider. However, the vast majority of patients were not informed of the allegations the hospital was investigating or that they may have been secretly photographed or videotaped.
The hospital says it has launched its own investigation of the incident, and it is expected that a further letter will be sent to patients this week.
Any former patients of Dr. Nikita Levy should contact the attorneys at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. to review what legal rights may be available and whether they may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of the incident.
Confidential consultations and claim evaluations are being provided, and all lawsuits are being investigated on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no out-of-pocket expenses to hire our law firm and there are no attorney fees unless a recovery or settlement is obtained for former patients of Dr. Nikita Levy.
If you suspect that you or a family member may have been secretly photographed or videotaped by Dr. Levy, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
