Although they occupy a unique space in medicine, chiropractors are subject to many of the risks plaguing traditional medicine.
One of the downsides to working with so many people is that there is a greater chance an accident can occur, and subjective medical experiences can lead to misunderstandings and claims. For these reasons, malpractice insurance is becoming a must for the savvy chiropractor.
