Tacoma, WA asked in Medical Malpractice for Washington

Q: Chiropractor sends bogus bill with outrageous fees and then shows up at my house multiple times after hours knocking.

So I was hit in a car accident with my 5 year old in the car. We went to a chiropractor and he took some x-rays and told us we should come 3 times a week for 3 months. I did not like the feeling of getting adjusted and neither did my daughter. So I went 3 times total, but only got adjusted the one time. My daughter went twice and she also didn't get adjusted. We basically laid on his water massge chairs for 20 minutes each. So I went back.to the insurance company and said that inwas not going to continue treatment and wanted to settle the case. The chiropractor was not happy to hear this but provided me the paperwork to fax over to the insurance company. This chiropractor charged me over 3 thousand dollars and the settlement barely even covered that.

When chiropractor started showing up at my condo front door of my home when he would get off around 7pm and knocking I felt scared. This happened probably 4 times. Now he sent this crazy bill to collections. What can I do now?

A: The question may be, not did the chiropractor charge too much, but did you settle for too little.

The bills could be reviewed by another chiropractor or experienced attorney to give you and opinion.
