Handling Traumatic Brain Injury Cases Promo 2019 from Trial Guides on Vimeo.

 Agenda

Traumatic brain injury cases are an important topic within personal injury law.  The field evolves quickly with rapid changes in the science.  

These complex injury claims involve many factors in neuropsychology, neurology and advanced imaging.  In addition, traumatic brain injury cases are likely to provoke defense claims of malingering, somatoform disorder, or of personality disorders based upon psychological injuries.  

Trial Guides is pleased to present a one-day CLE focused entirely on traumatic brain injury cases.  This event is different from other brain injury litigation events, because rather than lawyers providing brief presentations, we are bringing you nationally recognized experts in neuropsychological testing, psychological defenses, neurological aspects of traumatic brain injuries, brain stem injuries and autonomic nervous system injuries (including associated impacts on the visual and inner ear systems), as well as advanced brain imaging.  These help you by providing objective evidence of traumatic brain injury to supplement the historically valuable reports of the injured person and their friends and family.  Each speaker’s lecture will take a deep dive into the issues most likely to impact your traumatic brain injury cases.  

 Dr. Richard Perrillo is perhaps the leading forensic neuropsychologist in the United States.  He not only knows how to test correctly (an issue in many neuropsychological evaluations) but helps develop and “beta test" the neuropsychological tests performed by other neuropsychologists.  Dr. Perrillo works on significant traumatic brain injury cases with some of the leading plaintiff and defense lawyers in the United States.  He will be addressing a number of important topics including the difference between neuropsychological tests and psychological tests, problems with use of the MMPI and other psychological tests in traumatic brain injury (and other types of injury) claims, problems with admissibility of the “Fake Bad Scale,” how to determine the client’s pre-injury cognitive capacity and compare that to the client’s post injury neuropsych testing scores, why “average” or “normal” scores after an injury are not normal for some clients, and much more.  This will help you to understand and put you on the path of mastering neuropsychological testing as an objective measure of your client’s brain injury. 

Dr. Glen Zielinski is one of the leading functional neurologists in the world.  Rather than using the traditional “do nothing” approach for people with brain injuries, functional neurology deals with the evaluation, and treatment of brain injuries, autonomic nervous system injuries, neurodegenerative conditions, and peripheral neurological injuries.  Dr. Zielinski has lectured for thousands of hours on Functional Neurology to medical, chiropractic, osteopathic, and naturopathic physicians throughout North America and Europe.  His practice focuses primarily on severe traumatic brain injuries, movement disorders, disorders of gait and balance, and disorders of childhood neurological development.  He has helped celebrity entertainers and musicians, professional athletes, Olympic Gold Medalists, World Champions and other notable public figures recover from neurological injuries and maximize their performance.  He is known for succeeding with patients with complex neurological conditions who have seen teams of doctors and medical facilities with no success. He was awarded a fellowship from the American College of Functional Neurology in 2010. He was honored as Neurologist of the Year for 2014 by the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation, the highest award in the Functional Neurology profession.  Dr. Zielinski will be lecturing on neurological components of traumatic brain injuries including objective visual and balance testing and why those are amongst the best supported evidence for TBI.  He will also discuss associated neurodegenerative conditions and other health changes resulting from brain and neurological trauma.

Dr. Mark Herbst is a nationally recognized board-certified radiologist, and senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology, specializing in advanced brain imaging.  He provides forensic neuroradiological reviews for both the plaintiff and defense in civil personal injury claims.  In his lecture he will review the likelihood of positive advanced imaging in traumatic brain injury cases, as well as methods of brain imaging including MRI, CT, DTI, PET, ultrasound, and more.  He will also discuss why quick radiology reads by the initial radiologist may miss important neurological findings that support your claim, as well as why other findings may not be as significant as you believe them to be.

Dr. Aaron DeShaw is a trial lawyer and founder of Trial Guides.  He is a former doctor who practiced in the US and Europe, retiring from practice in 2000 when he became a lawyer.  He has been selected for Super Lawyers multiple times for his work in insurance class action cases and complex catastrophic injury claims.  Approximately 90% of DeShaw’s clients have traumatic brain injury or complex neurological injury claims.  During this conference, DeShaw will be providing an overview of how you detect and assist clients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury. He will cover the wide variety of changes experienced by clients after a traumatic brain injury, including cognitive, behavioral, neurological, endocrine, speech, sleep, psychological, neuro-degenerative, gastrointestinal, autoimmune, autonomic nervous system, seizure, C1 / Brainstem, vision and inner ear changes.  He will also discuss how to utilize the information from the conference in your TBI cases.
