Are you facing a license investigation, accusation, or statement of issues by the Physical Therapy Board of California? Our law firm’s experienced legal team of license defense attorneys, paralegals, lawyers, and professionals can help you protect your physical therapist license.
We know your efforts as a physical therapist makes a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis. As you rehabilitate muscles and joints affected by accidents, illnesses and disabling conditions such as arthritis, head injuries and cerebral palsy, and you provide a standard of care whose goal is to restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities while promoting and maintaining overall fitness and health.
We also know that many of you hold two or more jobs, working in hospitals, in practices with other health practitioners, and in care homes. If you look back on your path to becoming a PT, the 5+ years you spent studying coursework in biology, chemistry and physics, as well as specialized courses such as biomechanics, neuroanatomy, human growth and development, etc. were pretty intense.
Your ability to practice your medical specialty depended on passing both national and state licensing exams; holding onto that license means taking continuing education classes and attending workshops, making you, like other health care professionals, a perennial student.
The job forecast for physical therapists is excellent through 2018, projected to experience even faster growth than other professions requiring a master’s degree, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. But have you thought about what your life might be like if your license became suspended or even revoked?
Rose Law believes every hard-earned state of California license is worthy of a professional defense, whether you are in the process of obtaining it or hanging on to it once an accusation has taken place. We understand the bureaucratic red tape and short time-lines given for documentation required by the Physical Therapy Board when your license becomes challenged.
