Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers handle lawsuits against chiropractors. Chiropractic treatment is often very effective in certain types of injuries and conditions. Many times, patients do not get adequate pain relief from more conventional methods of medicine and a chiropractor can be an excellent treatment option. In fact, many medical doctors refer their patients to chiropractors for treatment. However, there are occasions when patients suffer injuries due to the chiropractor's spinal adjustments and spinal manipulations. In other situations, the chiropracter may have failed to diagnose a serious underlying medical condition that needed to be referred to an appropriate medical specialist. In these situations, the injured patient may be able to file a chiropractor malpractice lawsuit.
