    Collapse The Catastrophic Injury Case: Quadriplegia, Paraplegia and Spinal Injury Cases (Washington)

    Understand the diagnosis and the injury

    The spinal cord is simply a bunch of nerves. Its function is not so simple, though, and it is extremely important: the spinal cord allows the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. When the spinal cord is damaged, victims can experience a life-changing loss of function of their limbs.
    The first step to handling a case involving catastrophic injuries is understanding the systems of the body. Professor Sam Hodge and Dr. Virginia Graziani Lowe will break down those systems with every-day language and easy-to-remember analogies.

     

    Evaluate the case from both sides: maximizing vs. minimizing exposure

    A panel of litigators and medical experts weighs in on both sides of the catastrophic case. You get a step-by-step look at developing a case for damages: gathering and developing medical evidence and witnesses, and creating photographic and videographic evidence to fully portray a plaintiff’s damages. You will also learn creative strategies for defending these types of cases.

     

    Get the “big picture”

    A multi-disciplinary panel helps you to understand the systems of the spine and the mechanism of injury to this vital part, and they show you how to develop a case for damages when injury occurs and how to defend a case when a suit is filed. You will also learn how other areas come into play in these situations:

    • Rehabilitation
    • Mental health therapy
    • Life care planning
    • Family budgeting
