Medical Malpractice Case Against a Chiropractic Doctor

John Parker and Nicholas Hart successfully defended a medical malpractice case against a chiropractic doctor. The Plaintiff claimed that the chiropractor failed to perform proper diagnostic testing prior to initiating treatment, failed to obtain adequate informed consent, and that the chiropractor used excessive force during chiropractic manipulation resulting in a stroke following a dissection of Plaintiff’s vertebral artery. As a result of the alleged negligence, Plaintiff claimed she now suffers from permanent motor/balance issues, slurred speech, involuntary movements and memory loss. Plaintiff, age 36, is now unable to work. Plaintiff sought over two million dollars in damages. After seven days of evidence, including four experts on behalf of the plaintiffs, a Woodford County, Kentucky jury returned a unanimous defense verdict in less than twenty minutes.
