If you suffer a broken leg during physical therapy you can sue the physical therapist if the injury caused was due to error or mistake on the physical therapists behalf. Often, these lawsuits are filed against the physical therapy companies or the medical providers who employ the therapists. In fact, under Michigan law the employer of the physical therapist can be held liable for injuries caused by the therapist. This type of claim is a physical therapy malpractice lawsuit and can be pursued if a patient suffers injuries, such as a broken leg, due to the physical therapist's mistake.
