Chiropractors, like any other medical profession, face professional liability risks that can upend their practice, hurting their bottom line and reputation. Whether it’s spinal adjustments that can cause disc herniation, nerve pain, lumbar pain, or even neurological damage and other injuries, to allegations of unprofessional conduct or failure to diagnose or improperly diagnose a patient’s medical condition, chiropractors can find themselves in a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging physical, financial or emotional loss as a result of their treatment and services. A patient can claim that the chiropractor in question did not meet the standard of care or that the breach in the standard of care or duty to the patient caused the injury.
Additionally, as with all healthcare providers, audits and improper billing are another potential exposures chiropractors face. Cyber attacks, including a data breach that compromises a chiropractor’s patient data, are also of great concern. Chiropractors store vital health and personal information on their patients, making them vulnerable to cyber criminals.
