    Got a call today for Chiropractors office asking for bid. I stand by my work, but seems like playing with fire to me. I might hold out to see if any personal injury lawyers need me first.

    I have been doing a chiropractors office for 7 years now. I haven't had any problems what so ever.

    Well if they get hurt you could claim pre existing condition.

    That is very true. Something that insurance companies have been using the longest.

    Kind of hard to tell the lawyer you hurt your back going to the chiropractor.

    They are funny. Told me they just want the lowest price and aren't concerned about if the contractor has insurance or not "the other guy did everything for $100 per storm". requests salt/sand only once per storm and "nobody has ever gotten hurt". I was surprised figuring if anyone would cover themselves it would be a chiropractor. Great point ,as usual, GV never even thought about that.
    I don't really want it if they are gonna put all these BS limits in place and see someone get hurt or unable to pay. They seem awful tight with a buck, but i think just honestly ignorant not malicious.

    My chiro is almost zero tolerance.

    NO LAWSUITS is the goal...... never.
    And NO slip and falls, even if they don't result in a lawsuit.

    I've been plowing one for 20yrs now. Never had a problem.They have even offered me free adjustments.Politely declined.Seems like when the weather is bad patients cancel
    their appointments.They probably don't want to get hurt and complicate their pending
    lawsuits!

    LOL, I have an appointment with a dentist next week, We are going to talk about bartering services, but I am going to do a 2-1 (paying the difference if we do not get a lot of snow) since his service is worth more to me then the price I would get plowing. A broken tooth and impacted wisdom tooth are no fun at all! LOL
