Traumatic Brain Injury: Proving or Challenging the Existence and Extent of Brain Damage Using Expert Witnesses
September 1, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This CLE course will offer advanced guidance to personal injury attorneys proving or challenging the existence and extent of injury in traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases. The panel will explore what types of experts should be engaged, what to look for in credentialing and demeanor, and strategies for establishing bias, over-reaching, or even incompetence in opposing experts. The panel will review the reliability, usefulness, and admissibility of traditional imaging tools and newer tools, such as Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) and Abbott Laboratory’s rapid handheld TBI blood test approved under the FDA’s Expedited Programs for Serious Conditions.
