Bruce Stern in Tennessee: All Brain Injury is Serious

Posted in 10 Myths of Brain Injury, Brain Injury Events

On Monday, September 26, 2016, I had the pleasure of giving a presentation entitled “Dispelling the Myths of a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: All Traumatic Brain Injury is Serious.”

My presentation addressed 10 myths surrounding Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, such as concussions are not serious, everyone recovers from mild TBI, mild TBI is not permanently disabling, one does not need to lose consciousness, and conventional neuroimaging is sensitive to mild TBI. The three day event in Nashville brought together some of the country’s leading trial attorneys and medical experts who presented on a myriad of medical and legal issues surrounding the preparation of a TBI case.

The symposium was sponsored by the Brain Injury Association of Tennessee and the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association.
