Chiropractic medicine can help a patient loosen tight muscles, improve joint mobility and function, even decreases degeneration in joints and connective tissues. However, sometimes a chiropractic patient suffers an injury while under a chiropractor’s care. If a chiropractor’s medical treatment results in injury, the injured patients can file a medical malpractice lawsuit.

At Fay Law Group, P.A., we can help you recover financial compensation to pay for medical treatment, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. With more than five decades of legal experience, our Washington DC chiropractic negligence attorneys can investigate your case, collect evidence, and maximize the compensation and justice you deserve.

THE LIABILITY OF A CHIROPRACTOR

A chiropractor—just like any other healthcare provider—has a duty of care to recognize a patient’s medical condition and provide the necessary treatment. If a chiropractor fails to properly diagnose or neglects to make the adequate medical decision, he/she could be held liable for the patient’s injuries.

The following are the types of injuries caused by chiropractic negligence:

  • Vascular injury, nerve injury, herniated discs, or stroke related to spinal manipulation
  • Carotid or vertebral artery injury
  • Facial paralysis
  • Numbness or tingling of limbs
  • Consistent headaches
  • Vertigo

To file a medical malpractice lawsuit against a chiropractor, the plaintiff must show that the treating healthcare provider didn’t exercise the usual standard of care that reasonable chiropractor—in the same situation—would have exercised during treatment, and that failure to exercise reasonable care resulted in injury. On the other hand, if a chiropractor performs a procedure that the plaintiff didn’t provide consent for, the plaintiff could sue for fraud, civil batter, or even willful and wanton misconduct.
