Physical Therapy and Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

michigan physical therapy medical malpracticeOur Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients injured or harmed by physical therapists.   These cases arise from injuries caused by the physical therapist while treating a patient at home, in a skilled nursing care facility, and at a clinic or hospital.  The injuries caused by physical therapist errors can result in significant harm to the patient, including fractured bones and burn injuries. 

We file malpractice lawsuits against 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.  These include claims for improper hiring, improper supervision, and failure to train the physical therapist.  Under Michigan law, the employer of the physical therapist can be held liable for injuries caused by the therapist.

Common Causes of Physical Therapy Medical Malpractice

Common causes of malpractice lawsuits against a physical therapist include the failure to:

  • Report the patient’s condition
  • Refer the patient or seek a consultation from a specialist
  • Use proper positioning
