2019 TBI Med School for Lawyers



LEARNING THE MEDICAL ESSENTIALS REQUIRED TO REPRESENT THE TRAUMATICALLY BRAIN DAMAGED CLIENT AND THE ACUTELY BRAIN INJURED


Traumatic Brain Injury and Permanent Brain Damage are two of the most commonly missed diagnoses of modern medicine.  As medical science has evolved to dispel the common myth of uniform concussion recovery, lawyers must know the current medical science and the phases and markers that distinguish the permanently brain damaged from the healing brain injury.  The faculty of Medical School for Lawyers, each a recognized expert and leader in their field, brings you the medical science you need to know to evaluate, advise, and advocate for the brain injured client.
