Winning a malpractice case often requires resources outside of the chiropractic profession. That’s why we defend you using 120+ years of claims experience across healthcare, the nation’s leading defense counsel, and over 7,000 of the best expert witnesses.
If your company only insures chiropractors, they may not have the breadth of resources and insights to best defend your case. Being covered by a company with experience across professions can be the deciding factor in a malpractice lawsuit — and we have the winning record to prove it. We close 80% of claims without payment and hold a 90% trial win rate.
