The primary responsibility of physical therapists is to consult with patients in order to learn about their physical condition and symptoms. They must recognize movement dysfunction and devise a safe treatment plan for the sick patients. They must teach patients how to properly use therapeutic exercise techniques, whether in the therapy center or at home. To promote healing, they use stimulation or massage.
However, if they are treating patients based on physician referrals, they are required to follow the referring physician's instructions based on the diagnosis made. In the legal context, strictly adhering to the diagnosis and providing appropriate massage or adjustments will be safer for both patients and physical therapy specialists.
Physical therapy malpractice is a significant issue in nursing homes, and long-term care institutions since many of the patients there are weak, have memory problems, or communication problems. Patients who are injured may not be able to report it to the therapist if they are irresponsible in the therapeutic exercises, they are performing with them.
If you are successful in proving that your physical therapist was to blame for your injuries, you may be able to recover compensation for your losses. Compensation is not intended to replace pre-existing injuries; rather, it is intended to compensate for losses caused by negligence. They typically also cover the cost of any care required to repair any damage caused by the defendant. The extent of the losses will be determined by the type of injuries sustained.
Obtaining witness statements from your other medical experts to prove that the injury was caused by the negligence of the physical therapy specialists would strengthen your claim for damages. Because the referring physician's records would contain all of the recommendations, your attorney can persuade the defense to settle or dismiss the case.
