Our Michigan nursing home injury lawyers represent nursing home residents injured or harmed by physical therapists. These cases arise from injuries caused by the physical therapist while treating a patient in a skilled nursing care facility during physical therapy or occupational therapy. The injuries caused by physical therapist errors can result in significant harm to the patient, including fractured bones and burn injuries.
When a nursing home resident is injured by a physical therapist, there is a legal remedy to compensate the resident for those injuries. Our experienced attorneys file malpractice lawsuits against nursing homes and physical therapists on behalf of patients who are injured as a result of negligent medical care. Lawsuits are also often filed against physical therapy companies or the medical providers who employ the therapists that treat the nursing home patient.
Common causes of injuries caused by a physical therapist at a nursing home include the failure to:
- Report the patient’s condition
- Refer the patient or seek a consultation from a specialist
- Use proper positioning
- Use proper technique causing injury
- Appropriate force during therapy and manipulation
- Safely and properly perform manipulation
- Safely and properly use heat therapy or hot packs causing burns
- Safely and properly use cold packs/ice massage
- Use proper techniques during massage
- Assist patients during transfers
