Settlement in Michigan Chiropractic Malpractice Case – Herniated Cervical Disc

Comments (0)

Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers recently settled a chiropractor malpractice case in which the patient sustained a permanent injury to her cervical spine as the result of an improper chiropractic manipulation.  As a result of the damage caused to the patient’s neck, she developed significant pain and numbness resulting in the need for discectomy and spinal fusion surgery.  The suit contended that the patient would not have required surgery for her condition had appropriate and safe manipulation been used during the chiropractic treatment.

The most common causes of chiropractic malpractice cases include injuries by the chiropractor during the adjustment itself, such as:

  • Chiropractic strokes
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Cracked vertebrae
  • Ruptured discs
  • Herniated cervical discs
  • Herniated lumbar discs
  • Herniated thoracic discs
  • Nerve damage
  • Torn ligaments
  • Fractured ribs
  • Loss of feeling in arms and legs with tingling and shooting pains

The medical malpractice case was pending in Wayne County Circuit Court.  Depositions were taken of the parties and written discovery was exchanged.  The parties agreed to settle the case before trial.  The terms of that settlement are subject to a confidentiality agreement between the parties.
