Police have arrested a Sacramento, California man who used his own home for illegal chiropractic services. Antonio Arellano, 76, has been arrested after he snapped the neck of a patient — leaving him brain dead.
The 66-year-old victim went to Arellano’s home to be “adjusted”. Arellano reportedly snapped his neck.
The common law follows a simple rule in such cases: the victim can sue the culprit under the professional standard. Thus, if you present yourself as a real lawyer, doctor, architect etc, you must satisfy a standard of what a reasonable professional would have done in such a circumstance.
Most jurisdictions also make it a crime to practice in such a profession without a license.
