Dan Ryan Keeps The SSKS Streak Intact With Another Big Trial Win

Dan recently secured a defense verdict in a PT malpractice case in Onondaga County Supreme Court.  During a passive range of motion exercise, plaintiff alleged the defendant physical therapist exerted too much pressure on plaintiff’s post-operative knee causing the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) to tear, resulting in the need for two revision surgeries and permanent injury.  Dan presented expert evidence that the maneuver in question was appropriate, was not aggressive, could not have caused a tear to the PCL, and that tearing of the PCL was not possible in a flexion passive range of motion exercise because the PCL is lax in that position. The jury deliberated for an hour and a half before returning a unanimous verdict in favor of the defendants.

Dan, from the minute I met you my mind was more at ease than it has been in 2.5 years. I want to make sure you know how integral you were in the entire success of this B.S. case. Can’t say thank you enough but this is the least I can do.
