Refuting Permanent Traumatic Brain Injury with Persuasive Expert Testimony

Summary:


A battery of psychiatric tests administered to plaintiff revealed a consistent
pattern of scores in the “average” range and not in the “below average
range” associated with patients suffering the types of brain damage alleged
by plaintiff.

A teenage plaintiff, who suffered significant facial scarring as the result of an admitted liability traffic accident, claimed permanent traumatic brain injury that would require lifetime care in a supervised facility. The defense countered that in the six years after the accident, while she did suffer injuries that should be compensated, she did not incur verified brain injury that required lifetime care.
