Minor Impact Soft Tissue (MIST) cases can be some of the most difficult cases to prove and win. We all know what whiplash is, but can you explain it? Can you explain how a crash causes a muscle strain or ligament sprain, and how the direction and force of the impact can impact your client? Do you really know how the body systems function, and why the junk science doesn't add up?
If you are trying "MIST" cases or if you are settling them, you need all the help you can get. Imagine walking into a settlement conference or a courtroom, armed with solid, irrefutable facts about the seriousness of the plaintiff's condition. Imagine cross examining the defense expert and proving the basis of his opinion to be false. Dr. Arthur Croft's new book, Whiplash and Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries can help you do just this.
Perhaps defense counsel knows the facts too. Understanding that facts will cause them to lose, they will try to change the theme of the case from "the plaintiff isn't injured" to "the plaintiff is lying." Sound familiar? When you understand the science of traumatic injuries and can prove that your client is injured, the defense's only viable tactic is to claim your client is malingering or has somatoform disorder. Rick Friedman's Polarizing the Case helps you combat the "malingering" issue with phenomenal success. Inner Circle Member Michael Koskoff, says "Rick Friedman's important new book is essential for all lawyers who have suffered the sting of hearing their clients' real injuries mocked, minimized and maligned."
Regardless of whether you settle your cases or go to trial, Trial Guides provides you the tools you need to win whiplash and mild traumatic brain injury cases.
