Jury presents chiropractors $23 million verdict vs. CSX Transportation

A jury in Greenup County has returned a verdict of just about $23 million versus CSX Transportation and its main healthcare officer for defaming two chiropractors and interfering with their health care provider-affected individual partnership. 

The verdict, returned Sept. 22, incorporated $10.7 million in punitive damages for each and every of the chiropractors, Daniel Carey II and Shannon Johnson. 

1 of their lawyers said it was believed to be the greatest verdict at any time returned in Greenup, which is about 190 miles east of Louisville. 

Carey and Johnson sued immediately after the railroad company’s main healthcare officer, Dr. Craig Heligman, despatched a letter to a federal railroad agency, three insurance corporations and the Ohio and Kentucky chiropractic boards accusing them of fraudulently managing CSX staff in the tri-condition region, which also contains West Virginia.
