Chiropractic care is a therapy that is focused on the structure of the body mainly on the spine. Chiropractors maneuver the body’s alignment to relieve pain and improve function and help the body heal itself. Even though chiropractic care is deemed safe and effective mistakes can be made. Just like other healthcare providers, chiropractors may be held liable for injuries sustained due to negligence in care. Chiropractor malpractice happens when a chiropractor fails to follow the medical standard of care resulting in injuries to the patient.
Types of Chiropractor Malpractice
- Making a misdiagnosis
- Failing to diagnose an underlying condition
- Failure to run additional tests to diagnose
- Failure to warn a patient of the risks associated with a treatment
- Choosing a course of treatment that injured the patient
Many chiropractors invest in chiropractic malpractice insurance. Chiropractic malpractice insurance protects the chiropractor’s practice in the event they are sued for malpractice. The malpractice insurance pays claims if the chiropractor is sued for malpractice and loses the case. The insurance provider will fight on behalf of the chiropractor to limit or deny the patient’s claim. This is one reason to consult with a chiropractor malpractice lawyer because they will work on the patient’s behalf to obtain a fair settlement.
