Fleming Law Office in Central Illinois

John Fleming tried a case that involved a minor rear-end tap accident.  The injured plaintiff claimed a neck injury, and received in excess of $10,000.00 in chiropractic treatment.  The jury returned with a verdict of less than $200.00.  There were two keys to the low verdict, based in the chiropractor’s testimony.  First, the chiropractor testified that on each visit where he found the physical condition of the injured claimant to be “good”, the chiropractor claimed the jury should ignore those findings, because, in his practice of chiropractic and on his office charting, “good” really means “bad”.  Second, the chiropractor included two charges for his range of motion testing - once during his routine examination and a second time, immediately following the physical exam, during a test when the patient was hooked up to a computer.
