Jurors spent about seven hours in deliberations before concluding non-emergency transportation company Logisticare LLC was partially at fault for the 2012 Adele, Ga. accident, which occurred when the woman, a left-leg amputee traveling to a dialysis appointment, fell from her wheelchair as the van struck a pothole.
