How My Expertise in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Added Value to a Case


I was asked by a well regarded attorney to co-counsel on a case involving mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).

It was a very difficult mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) case wherein there was no immediate hospitalization, no brain bleed, and there was confirmed cocaine use with an effective argument that it was prolonged use of cocaine (the psychiatric sequelae from cocaine use overlap the psychiatric sequelae of TBI: erratic behavior, anger control, sleeplessness, emotional instability, transcient focus...). 

My role was to investigate the mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) of the case and prepare this aspect of the case for trial. There was no expectation that the case would settle. 

From Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans performed, I had a distinguished radiologist and psychiatrist develop a 3 Dimensional rendering of the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan. I believe this has never been used in NYS. 

Within 1 year of my involvement, we settled the case for $3,250,000.00 Million. At the time I was asked to co-counsel, there was no offer.
