Physical therapist malpractice insurance, also known as physical therapist liability insurance, is financial protection designed to cover judgements, settlements, along with legal expenses of physical therapists in the case of a malpractice lawsuit. In the event of a malpractice claim, whether the accusation is true or not, physical therapists could be expected to pay large amounts in judgement, settlement or legal fees. The best protection against a financially damaging lawsuit and high legal fees is medical malpractice insurance. As a physical therapist, your employer’s group liability policy may prioritize their interests over yours. Owning your own individual PT professional liability insurance policy, IN YOUR OWN NAME, will protect you, your family and your career, as well as your hard-earned personal assets.
Physical therapists work with patients in a variety of ways. Many are responsible for working with or treating patients directly which means that they are at risk of being named in a malpractice suit if something should go wrong. PTs often interact with patients more than any other medical professional in an office setting – so, with that much direct exposure to patients, PTs need to be able to properly perform their duties without the constant fear of potential litigation. PT malpractice insurance is the best way to protect and defend, as well as provide peace of mind, for physical therapists.
