Med-Legal Corner

Dr. Jimenez Med-Legal Corner. Medical law is a branch of law that concerns the prerogatives and responsibilities of medical professionals and the rights of the patient. It should not be confused with medical jurisprudence, which is a branch of medicine, rather than a branch of law. The main branches of medical law are the law of torts (most notably medical malpractice) and criminal law in relation to medical practice and treatment. Ethics and medical practice are a growing field. After working in chiropractic for 30+ years, especially in personal and work injuries.

In the Med-legal corner, Dr. Jimenez knows the ins and out’s of what goes into personal and work injury claims. Receiving chiropractic care from a personal injury doctor after suffering an injury can be a lifesaver. As a personal injury chiropractor has attended post-graduate training in accident injury evaluation and treatment which can guarantee a more effective diagnosis and care. An added bonus is that the chiropractor can do depositions and testify in court.

A personal injury doctor works closely with multiple attorneys. The best chiropractors maintain a list of attorneys they know can deliver quality results to their patients in a car accident and personal injury cases. A doctor that has connections with more than one attorney offers a wide variety of experienced personal injury claim professionals to choose from, who can better accommodate you to solve your specific case after an accident.
