Many people who already experience pain go to a chiropractor to feel better, so it can be especially difficult when the opposite occurs — when chiropractic malpractice causes serious and life-changing injury.
At the Law Office of Vincent N. Amendola Jr., LLC, in West Haven, Connecticut, we understand the pain our clients’ experience. We advocate forcefully, helping them achieve the best possible results by taking legal action in courts throughout Connecticut.
A reoccurring problem related to chiropractic malpractice is a chiropractor’s use of X-rays to diagnose the cause of neck injury or back injury. While X-rays work well for viewing bones, the soft tissue and nerves affected really require an MRI to achieve an accurate assessment of the problem. Chiropractic malpractice often starts with failure to pursue an MRI.
As with any treatment, appropriate information must be provided so that patients understand the risks they take on. There are many risks associated with chiropractic treatment. If you were not warned, you may have been the victim of malpractice and should contact an attorney about a subsequent personal injury.
Chiropractic malpractice often continues with aggressive chiropractic manipulation — without an appropriate workup. This manipulation can cause a wide range of serious damage including blown-out disks, ruptured arteries and stroke, as well as torn ligaments and tendons. Many chiropractic malpractice victims even experience whiplash from overly aggressive treatments.
