Over the last year, I’ve had to go to the chiropractor for various reasons, and they would always give me treatment and send me on my way, only for me to be back there again soon. I just thought that my back was really bad, but now I see that it’s not just my back, but treatment I was given. I wanted to get a second opinion from a different specialist, so I did a little research to find another local one in my area, and made an appointment to see them. I told them about the problems I was having with my back and all of the treatments that I had been given over the past year, which produced a puzzling look.
The chiropractor told me that the treatment I had been getting wasn’t the correct treatment, and it was only making things worse. This was a huge shock to me, because I was going through so much pain for nothing. I started to think about possible lawyers who could help me file a malpractice suit, but before that, I had to get the proper treatment for my back. The new chiropractor was able to give me the right one and my back felt much better. I didn’t have to visit him again, expect for a follow up to make sure that everything was fine.
The lawyer that I contacted was able to help me start forming my case, taking records of when I had to get treatment and how I was feeling after getting each one. I couldn’t believe that the specialist was putting my back in jeopardy. I don’t know if it was simple ignorance or purposeful, but I couldn’t just let him get away with giving me the wrong treatment. Who knows how many other people have been getting incorrect treatments from him.
