Claims against an under-trained physiotherapist

If you have sustained a serious injury then chances are rest and relaxation won’t be the only thing that you need to get back on the path to rehabilitation. Physiotherapy can play a crucial role in ensuring that your joints, muscles and ligaments are back in action in no time and a mixture of physical therapy and rehabilitation plans can also help to ensure that your injuries heal in the proper way.

Although in general physiotherapy will go a long way to putting you back on track, sometimes this is not always the case and if you do find that you have been the victim of a physiotherapist who has not had the correct level of training then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any costs that you have incurred.

What level of experience should my physiotherapist have?

In general any physiotherapist that works with you needs to be fully trained and have a professional physiotherapy qualification. In addition to this they need to have a certain level of experience to be able to deal with you adequately. Physiotherapists usually undergo substantial hands-on training before completing their qualifications and as such once a physiotherapist is ready to work with you they should have reached the full level of experience needed.

Where could I look to make a compensation claim?

Although in general physiotherapists have a great deal of experience before they start dealing properly with clients, this is not always the case, and some situations where you could make a claim for negligence include:

·         Claims for errors during physiotherapy

·         Claims for physical injury during physiotherapy

·         Claims for a failure to undertake the appropriate training

·         Claims for a failure to adequately train a physiotherapist

·         Claims against an unqualified physiotherapist.
