Speech and language-related issues can be very severe in certain circumstances. A child or adult might be physically unable to talk or produce verbal sounds due to a medical or cognitive condition. Such issues are often hereditary, slowly develop over time or occur instantly due to a medical condition.
People place their trust in speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to help them address such complicated issues. Unfortunately, patients sometimes file formal complaints against the SLP who treated them or a loved one.
If you are an SLP in Texas and someone filed a formal complaint against you, it’s critical that you have an experienced, Texas medical license defense attorney on your side. Otherwise, you could face disciplinary action from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), which oversees speech-language pathologists and audiologists in Texas.
