MUA is dangerousMarch 17, 2021

Mollo Chiropractic, PLLC v American Commerce Ins. Co., 2020 NY Slip Op 51548(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2020)

“Defendant’s experts’s theory in both his peer review report and at trial was, essentially, that MUA is an “aggressive” and possibly dangerous treatment and should therefore be used very rarely, limited to cases where, among other things, there has first been improvement with a course of traditional chiropractic care, and that the records here were inconsistent and not clear enough to show that this was one of those cases. The court was entitled to credit that testimony. The court also implicitly found that plaintiff’s witness’s testimony was less credible and failed to sufficiently rebut defendant’s expert’s testimony”
