Sustained a Serious Injury - Schedule a Free Legal Consult

Contrary to popular misconceptions, chiropractors are doctors. They attend a minimum of four years in undergraduate education, and they spend several years of additional education before finally receiving a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

Just like any other doctor, a chiropractor can be held legally accountable to a patient for medical malpractice. If, in the course of treatment, a chiropractor causes the patient to suffer injury or fails to take actions to safeguard the patient's health, he or she may be found liable for the injury, and the patient may in this case be able to recover monetary damages.

Types of Chiropractic Malpractice

There are two main types of chiropractic malpractice commonly seen in cases today. The first includes the chiropractor's failure to diagnose conditions that require timely medical attention. For example, if you were to have an injury pertaining to leg pain, the chiropractor might believe that it had to do with the alignment of your spine.

The chiropractor might attempt to manipulate your spine in an effort to relieve the pain. Instead, a blocked artery in your leg was the real cause of the problem and later forced you to amputate the injured leg. Had the doctor made an accurate diagnosis of the condition, you might have been able to avoid this outcome and make a full recovery.

The second type of chiropractic malpractice involves damage from the manipulation of your body in efforts to relieve any pain. Chiropractic adjustments are often quite forceful, and if the doctor makes even minor errors in the process the patient may be injured. In some instances, a chiropractor can attempt to align the patient's spine, but instead cause serious injuries, including but not limited to stroke or paralysis.
