Claims against a poorly trained physiotherapist

Physiotherapy is something that most people will go through at one stage of their life or another if they are in the process of coming back from a sports injury and it’s a crucial part of any rehabilitation if that person is looking to get straight back on track after an injury.

Although in most cases physiotherapy will help to put that person straight back on track, unfortunately on other situations this is not always the case and if you have been the victim of failed physiotherapy caused by a poorly trained physiotherapist, then you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover any potential costs that you have incurred as a result.

What level of training will a physiotherapist usually undertake?

In general physiotherapy requires a great deal of skills and as such a fully trained physiotherapist needs to undergo a great deal of education before being allowed to work with patients. A physiotherapists training includes undertaking the study of theory in addition to practical training on patients – and it’s crucial that your physiotherapist has undergone the appropriate training before they start to treat you.

What are some common situations where I could look to make a claim?

·         Claims for a physiotherapist who hasn’t been trained
