Chiropractic treatments, while valuable for many patients, carry risks just like any other medical treatment protocol. Chiropractic adjustments can result in stroke, increased pain and worsening of an underlying condition when treatments are provided negligently. As with any other negligently provided medical care, victims of chiropractor malpractice have the legal right to make a claim for compensation based on medical negligence.

Chiropractic services that are provided negligently can form the basis for a chiropractor malpractice claim under New Jersey law. Every day, chiropractors manipulate extremely sensitive and vital areas of the body, such as the spine and neck. When a chiropractor’s services are reckless or negligent, the patient can be left suffering indefinitely.
Chiropractor malpractice can cause the patient to suffer serious injuries, including:

Patients visit chiropractors for a variety of different reasons. Most patients visit to find non-pharmaceutical relief for an underlying issue, such as poor range of motion, headaches or allergies. Victims of chiropractor malpractice, however, may actually leave the chiropractor suffering from a condition that is much more serious than the one they sought to treat.

Chiropractors often adjust, or manipulate, the sensitive neck area. When the chiropractor uses the wrong type of manipulation, it can cause blood clots to form or cause blockage to the arteries in the neck that connect to the brain. Even if your loved one’s stroke occurred some time after receiving chiropractic treatment, the chiropractor’s actions could have caused the stroke.
Chiropractors have a legal duty to their patients just like any other doctor, nurse or healthcare provider. That duty requires the chiropractor to provide care that is in line with the standard of care in the profession. When your chiropractor provides care that is unreasonable under the circumstances, that care is considered negligent. New Jersey medical malpractice laws provide that chiropractors can be held legally accountable in the same way as any other negligent medical professional for failing to uphold their duties.
