Claims for injuries sustained while undergoing physiotherapy

Often seen as one of the biggest parts of a rehabilitation course, physiotherapy plays a major role in ensuring that you are put straight back on the path to recovery and that you are able to recover properly from any injuries that you have sustained in the past. A mixture of good physical therapy and advice and exercises to do at home, physiotherapy is designed to rebuild muscle strength and provide you with the support that you need to recover successfully.

Although in most cases physiotherapy will help you out, unfortunately this is not always the situation and in some circumstances you may find that through no fault of your own you are left with injuries that you have sustained as the result of faulty or poor physiotherapy.

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the technique used to nurse you back to health after you have received a serious injury or illness. It involves a mixture of educational techniques, exercises to do at home, advice from your physiotherapist and physical therapy to help you regain the ability that you may have had in your body prior to the accident.

Physiotherapy can be carried out in a number of different ways, but the most common techniques are through massage and consultancy on a regular basis.

How could I sustain an injury while undergoing physiotherapy?

Although physiotherapy is often used to help injuries that you may have, unfortunately this is not always the case and if you do find yourself the victim in this situation then you may sustain an injury.

Some common examples of where this might occur include:

·         Claims against a negligent physiotherapist

·         Claims for mistakes made during treatment

·         Claims for a failed treatment plan

·         Claims for injuries sustained during physical therapy

·         Claims for a poor physiotherapy plan.
