It’s hard to imagine a patient suing an Occupational Therapist, but it does happen.
Some of the claims made against Occupational Therapists include:
- Improper treatment
- Injury or Re-injury during treatment
- Burns from hot or cold pack
- Sexual misconduct
Even if the claim against you has no merit, the cost of having to defend yourself from a lawsuit is high.
Your employer’s insurance may not be enough to protect you if a claim is made against you. Your employer’s insurance is in place to protect the interests of your employer.
Occupational Therapist Malpractice Insurance is like having a safety net. It provides you with a team of experts, who work on your behalf, to make sure that your license and your livelihood are protected.
A malpractice lawsuit can take from two months to two years to resolve. Being able to minimize the stress, at work and at home, is what Malpractice Insurance offers.
