Although acupuncture malpractice may be rare, experts can be deployed to help mitigate liability (for defendants) or make the liability case (for plaintiffs).

One such expert is Anthony Von der Muhll, L.Ac., DNBAO.

Experts can sway the jury one way or another in a malpractice case, so it’s good to be able locate one specific to the case (medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc.).
