Information for LawyersAT COGNITIVE CONCUSSION CENTER WE WORK HAND IN HAND WITH MALPRACTICE AND PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS AND THEIR CLIENTS
Dr. Michael Giordano is a licensed practicing Attorney, as well as a board-certified Neurosurgeon, who has first-hand knowledge and combined experience in law and medicine. He is highly familiar with all aspects of various complex Medicolegal issues.
In the United States alone there are approximately eight million head injuries each year. Each of these has varying levels of severity. In what’s known as ‘whiplash’ trauma involving personal injuries to the head, back and neck being sustained, the damage occurs when the brain continues to move inside the skull after the head stops moving.
The effects of a concussion injury may not appear for several days or even weeks as it may take that long for swelling or even hemorrhaging to start to compress brain tissue. Often times a patient will be told to return home or resume work by an emergency room physician. Symptoms can be subtle and oftentimes challenging for both the patient and their lawyer because the injury may not show on diagnostic testing and subtle changes may not be apparent on subjective cognitive testing alone.
At Cognitive Concussion Centers, we offer a complete neurologic evaluation to include not only the standard cognitive testing, but we use cutting-edge technology to allow for objective balance testing with a comprehensive report that can then be compared to future studies showing concrete data of whether an injury is improving or progressing.
