Brain Injury Attorney Andrew Abraham was featured in the Summer/Fall 2019 edition of the Journal of Trucking Litigation. The publication is released twice a year by the American Association of Justices’ Trucking Litigation group and covers key topics facing truck accident litigators.
According to the American Association of Justice, truck collisions account for more than 140,000 reported injuries that require off-site medical treatment and an average of 5,000 deaths per year. It is estimated that more people die in truck accidents than in collisions in planes, trains, ships, and buses combined.
Attorney Abraham was asked to write about an area where he has decades of experience: litigating truck accident cases that include traumatic brain injuries.
He covered seven important aspects litigators can follow if they have a truck collision client with a brain injury:
- Getting Before and After Witnesses
- Alteration of Consciousness Witnesses
- Build Up Your Clients Pre-Morbid Intelligence
- Document and Record Complaints
- Isolate the Defense Medical Examinations (DME)
- Attack the Malingering Tests Themselves
