MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A jury has been selected to hear the case of a man who claims three northwestern Pennsylvania doctors are the reason he can no longer walk.

The (Titusville) Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1LsG9SB ) opening statements in the case were expected Tuesday at the Crawford County Courthouse.

The lawsuit names Titusville Area Hospital, three doctors and Titusville Area Health Center Inc. as defendants.

It says self-employed lumberjack Robert Anthony was hit by a tree branch between the shoulder blades in July 2012; pain from the blow rendered him unable to walk.

The suit says doctors at the hospital failed to determine he was unable to walk and sent him home with a broken back, which led to him becoming a paraplegic.

The defendants deny the allegations.
