Attorney James Sabatini has secured a $450,000.00 settlement for his client who suffered a mild traumatic brain injury. The settlement was obtained despite having multiple doctors hired by the defendant express the opinion that the client did not have a permanent injury as a result of the head trauma. The opinion was countered by the medical evidence that was obtained on the day of the trauma and during the weeks following the trauma. The medical documentation was consistent with trauma to the head and brain. Consequently, there was no dispute that a brain injury was sustained.
This case is another example of the importance on getting medical attention and examination immediately following head trauma. If it is not done, the medical evidence will be lacking thereby allowing the insurance company’s doctor to not only argue that there is no permanent injury but also argue that the accident in question never caused head trauma.
