Few industries have been the subject of as much scrutiny and controversy as chiropractic medicine. This area of medicine is mostly concerned with musculoskeletal disorders – most commonly, issues with the neck and spine. A person who suffers from muscle or joint pain, weakness, or reduced mobility may visit a chiropractor in hopes of relieving their debilitating symptoms. Unfortunately, some patients leave the chiropractor’s office in worse condition than when they arrived. If you or a loved one were harmed during a chiropractic procedure, you may have a valid legal claim against the chiropractor or the medical facility.  

Injuries That May Result from Improper Chiropractic Manipulation

Chiropractic care differs significantly from other types of medical treatment in that chiropractic treatment does not typically involve medications or drugs. Most chiropractors use hands-on chiropractic manipulation or adjustments to treat their patients. This typically involves physically moving a patient’s body or using tools to manipulate the bones of the neck, spine, and back. While many people find relief from chiropractic adjustments, there are also documented cases of chiropractic adjustments resulting in injury or even death. In fact, one study found that 30-61 percent of chiropractic patients suffer adverse effects. Injuries often associated with chiropractic treatment include:

One of the most important responsibilities a physician has is to recognize the signs and symptoms of an illness and accurately diagnose the medical condition from which a patient suffers. The sooner a patient receives a diagnosis, the sooner he or she can start treatment. In most cases, illnesses and diseases that are diagnosed early in the disease’s progression are easier to treat than diseases that have already considerably advanced. Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis can lead to preventable patient suffering, worsened medical conditions, and even patient death. If you or a loved one were misdiagnosed or did not receive a timely diagnosis, you may have a valid medical malpractice claim.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis Can Lead to Unnecessary Patient Suffering
The human body is immeasurably complex. Doctors cannot always know with 100 percent certainty the cause of a patient’s symptoms. However, physicians and other medical professionals are expected to meet a certain degree of accuracy regarding patient diagnoses. If you or a loved one were misdiagnosed with the wrong medical condition, you may be unsure of whether the misdiagnosis was caused by medical negligence. Misdiagnosis can cause significant suffering. You or your loved one may have undergone pointless medical treatments and endured unnecessary pain and suffering. Because the true cause of the symptoms was not identified, the disease may have worsened considerably during the time between the misdiagnosis and the correct diagnosis.

Birth injuries occur when an infant is injured during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. Some birth injuries are unavoidable, but others are the direct result of negligence or error on the part of a doctor, nurse, technician, or another medical worker. If your child was injured or passed away during the birthing process, you may be unsure of who is to blame. You may suspect that medical mistakes played a role in your child’s injury, but do not have proof to verify this. In situations like these, an experienced medical malpractice attorney is needed to evaluate medical records, consult with medical experts, and launch a full investigation into the circumstances of the injury.

Medical Mistakes Can Lead to Debilitating Injuries to Infants
Birth injuries can cause an infant to experience unnecessary suffering and ongoing medical complications. An injured baby may need specialized care well into childhood or even adulthood. Parents of injured children may become overwhelmed with medical expenses and other costs related to the injury. If the birth injury was preventable, the parents may be entitled to compensation for these costs through a medical malpractice claim. Birth injuries that may possibly be the result of medical negligence include:
