Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants practice in an environment that requires compliance with health care laws, rules, and regulations, and that necessitates attention to legal issues that arise in working for and/or running a business.

For assistance with such legal matters, PTs and PTAs should seek advice of legal counsel who can review their unique situation and provide advice tailored to the specific facts.
