Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapy License Defense

South Carolina Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapy Professional License Defense Lawyers

Professional License DefenseIn South Carolina Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy Licenses are all regulated by the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR). When it comes to professional licenses, license defense is very important.

Speech Pathologists and Audiologists, Occupational Therapists, and Physical Therapists all must adhere to statues and regulations set forth by the LLR. Anyone in any of the three professions may be subject to disciplinary actions if he/she is accused of engaging in behavior including, but not limited to:

  • Criminal Conduct
  • Practicing beyond the authorized scope of practice
  • Negligence
  • Practicing while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or while impaired due to a mental disability
  • Drug Abuse or addiction
  • Alcohol Abuse or Addiction
  • Allowing professional duties to be performed by unauthorized staff
  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Failure to maintain proper records
  • Fraud

If you are found guilty of any charges you may be at risk of facing public reprimand, license suspense, or the revocation of your license.

A complaint may be filed with LLR by a patient, employee, or other professional. Just because a complaint is filed does not imply that you are guilty. What the complaint does mean is you will need a professional licensing defense attorney to assist you in your matter. A professional licensing attorney will ensure that your legal rights are protected before it is too late.

Handling a Complaint with the LLR

Once a formal complaint is filed, an investigator with the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation will contact you. The investigator may simply say they want your side of the story to close the case. Be cautious when talking to the investigator because anything you say may be used against you. You have the right to decline further contact until you talk to your attorney.

A professional license defense attorney can assist you in your matter. An attorney will help outline the steps you need to take to avoid losing your license. Complaints with the LLR can have serious legal, financial, and personal implications. Do not hesitate in calling an experienced professional licensing defense attorney who can help you.

Handling a Referral to the RPP

If a speech professional, occupational therapist, or physical therapist is found guilty of an offense relating to drugs and/or alcohol they may be referred to the South Carolina Recovering Professionals Program (RPP). The RPP works jointly with LRADAC and the LLR. Once a referral is made, you will be subject to an assessment by the RPP. The RPP will then determine whether you need treatment and/or continued monitoring. You may be subject to monitoring by the RPP for a specific amount of time.

Remember the RPP is there to help you. They want to ensure your safety and get you back to working professionally.

If you believe you are under investigation by the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation call the experienced professional licensing defense attorneys at the Strom Law Firm, LLC. We will provide you with a free consultation. Contact us today at 803-252-4800.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
