Q: Injury from Chiropractor
I went to a chiropractor regularly for my neck and lower back. I have alot of problems on the left side of my neck. One day the chiropractor decided to adjust my shoulder, which she had never done for me before. I immediately felt pain after she tried to do whatever she thought she was doing. It has taken a few weeks for xrays, mris, and doctor appointments. Come to find out I have a bicipital tendon tear and a bankart lesion in the socket. Its already been about 6 weeks and now he says it might take another 6 weeks to heal. If it hasnt healed then he said I would need surgery to fix it. Can I sue the Chiropractor for the injury? Thank you so much and have a wonderful day.
