Traumatic Brain Injury
When the defense asks for a neuropsych exam of your client, what they are really asking for is an excuse to convert your client’s brain injury into a psychiatric flaw that can be blamed for ongoing cognitive problems, not the brain injury. And they want to do it all in secret, without you or anyone else observing so they can later claim your client is a head case and a liar because after all, every TBI resolves within 2 months, and since your client's didn’t resolve, they must be faking. Sound familiar?
Scott Blair will show you how to battle back against these tactics, using motions practice to require the defense doctor to provide all testing in the open, on video, and to provide the underlying raw data to you for evaluation as a condition for doing the testing. You will learn how to undermine the record review when the defense examiner refuses to conduct an exam and resorts to a record review. Scott will also teach you how to cross-examine the defense examiner at trial.
