Can a massage therapist get sued for malpractice?
The answer is yes!
Here are 3 steps which must be shown in order to prove negligence on the massage therapist or massage facilities part in the court of law.
1.The massage facility and massage therapist owed a general duty of care to the client.
2. The duty of care was breached resulting in the failure to massage in a proper fashion or take steps to insure the clients safety.
3. Breach of a duty of care results in significant injury to the individual.
Remember, when something goes wrong and a massage client gets injured, you could be liable and possibly sued.
