After a 5-day trial in Chester County, PA, Mark Merlini and Mike Joyce of MOODK’s Philadelphia office secured a defense verdict in favor of a chiropractor in a case involving claims that negligent chiropractic manipulations damaged a 45-year-old patient’s cervical vertebral artery resulting in a dissection and stroke.  Although the patient was left with permanent deficits from the stroke, the defense was able to prove that the chiropractic treatment had nothing to do with the patient’s outcome.
