If you feel that your physical therapist has made a mistake in diagnosing your condition, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice suit. Most states have special rules governing medical malpractice cases. Your case will be determined by whether or not your physical therapist was negligent at the time of your injury. Physical therapists are typically considered health care providers. Therefore, if you believe that your therapist has made a mistake, it’s important to contact an attorney.
There are many possible reasons why your physician may have made a mistake, including improper diagnosis of your condition. This can result in injuries to your muscles, joints, or spine. If you don’t get the proper treatment, you may experience permanent damage or even permanent disability. In some cases, your physical therapist may not have even been aware of the misdiagnosis. The result is that you may have to pay for physical therapy that didn’t work.
Sometimes, a physician can misdiagnose a condition in order to obtain a kickback from a professional providing additional assessments. The doctor may also perform an unnecessary assessment for financial gain. This can be a red flag that can lead to medical malpractice. Even worse, some physicians may deliberately misdiagnose patients to get more money. In such cases, the patient will end up receiving unnecessary treatments that can harm their health.
