What Risks Do I Face as A Physical Therapist Assistant That Warrants Malpractice Insurance?

Physical therapist assistants work with a physical therapist to help patients recover from injury or regain mobility. Physical therapist assistants can help patients do specific exercises as part of a care plan as well as use devices and equipment such as walkers to help patients. While they cannot perform all the duties of a physical therapist, the assistants work hand in hand to ensure steady patient progression. Because of their direct contact with the patient as well as the nature of the work, physical therapist assistants can find themselves at the center of a malpractice claim. To ensure the safety of their career as well as their personal assets, all physical therapists should have the appropriate malpractice insurance.

Why Do I Need Physical Therapist Assistant Malpractice Insurance?

Because legal settlements can threaten personal assets and future earnings, professional liability insurance for physical therapist assistants is very beneficial. Liability insurance for PTAs is designed to protect your personal assets or cover your expenses in the event of a medical malpractice lawsuit or liability claim. Relying solely on an employer’s physical therapist assistant malpractice insurance to protect personal assets from a lawsuit may cause professionals undue hardship. Individual PTA liability insurance is the best career or personal financial protection in the event of a professional lawsuit as it can cover legal fees and damages extending beyond the coverage, if any at all, provided by participation in a group policy with your employer.
