Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) is a complex and sometimes poorly understood injury. There is a host of physical, sensory, and cognitive symptoms that can manifest themselves, from immediately after an accident to months later. MTBI is an injury that can profoundly affect an injured party, while at the same time create challenges for both medical professionals and litigation counsel. Valuable for both plaintiff and defence lawyers, this comprehensive program will examine the medical and legal issues surrounding the collection, assessment, and tendering of evidence surrounding mild traumatic brain injury. You will benefit from the practical experience of our high level team of medical experts and senior counsel.
At this course you will learn about...
- the current state of brain injury litigation: the medical and legal issues
- the medical disciplines involved with assessing brain injury
- best practices for lawyers working with brain injury medical experts
- the big picture medical/legal assessment which ultimately frames an MTBI claim
