Over the past three days, from Monday through Wednesday, I had the pleasure of co-chairing the North American Brain Injury Society‘s (NABIS) 17th Annual Medical Legal Conference on Traumatic Brain Injury. The three day conference, held in Vail, Colorado, brought together the country’s leading medical and legal professionals in the field of traumatic brain injury. The conference actually started on Sunday with a pre-conference workshop held by Bradley Seewick, Ph.D., one of the nations’ leading neuropsychologists who, over an entire afternoon, gave an outstanding presentation about the strengths and weaknesses of neuropsychological testing. On Monday, the conference started with William Singer, M.D., a pediatric neurologist from Hartford Medical School who provided the participants with an understanding of brain anatomy. Dr. Singer was then followed by numerous physicians and psychologists who spoke on such topics as concussion in sports, pediatric traumatic brain injury, visual and vestibular disorders from traumatic brain injury. A new topic was added this year which was presented by Brent Masel, M.D., a Board certified neurologist from Galveston, Texas. Dr. Masel discussed post-traumatic hypopituitarism, which involved injury to the pituitary gland as a cause for traumatic brain injury. The second and third day of the conference brought together leading neurolaw attorneys from around the country as well as leading forensic experts. Topics such as direct and cross-examination of experts, admissibility and inadmissibility of expert testimony, malingering and worklife expectancy were all discussed. The conference was highlighted by a three-and-a-half hour presentation by David Ball, a leading trial consultant who discussed the topic of presenting damages at trial. Everyone was in agreement that this seminar was one of the best traumatic brain injury seminars any of the participants had ever attended.
