TOPIC: Invisible Injuries – How to help your Lawyer

There are a number of difficulties Plaintiff’s counsel faces in trying to prove the existence and severity of a traumatic brain injury or a mild traumatic brain injury. One of those difficulties is that most brain injuries, unlike other injuries such as a broken arm or an amputated leg, are invisible to the naked eye. X-rays, CT scans and MRIs can detect fractures, hemorrhages, swelling, and certain kinds of tissue damage, but they cannot always detect injury to a person’s brain.

Join lawyers Nick Todorovic and William Harding of McLeish Orlando to learn what to do and how you can help your lawyer in proving your brain injury case.
