I was a speaker at a wonderful presentation put on by event chair Kenneth B. Goldblatt, Esq., from Goldblatt & Associates, P.C., the Orthopedic and Brain Injury Law Group. The presentation was available to plaintiff lawyers and was offered by the New York State Trial Lawyers Asociation. Ken is an expert in tramatic brain injury and is a BIANYS Board Member. The panel members were Westchester County Supreme Court Judge Lewis J. Lubell and Dr. Brian Greenwald, Medical Director of the the Center for Head Injuries and Associates Medical JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute. I had the opportunity to tell my story that was used by the event to help the lawyers understand what the “silent illness” looks like. The Program was titled “The Anatomy of a Traumatic Brain Injury Case: The Journey V. The Destination.”
Listening to Ken and Judge Lubell discuss concussion and tramuatic brain injury from a legal standpoint, gave all the attendees a special insight into a case from a Judges perspective. Dr. Greenwald discussed some of the latest medical testing that is involved in court cases, and how it relates to case law which was also fascinating. Many of the attorneys thanked me for helping them better understand the topic being discussed and educating them. They also appreciated what I am doing to help bring awareness to the public about concussions and brain injuries.
