Liability Mechanism Medicine

Please join us for a seminar that will discuss how engineering, biomechanical and medical assessments can be used to support or refute a personal injury claim involving a concussion diagnosis.

Understanding the likely physical circumstances of the incident, as well as the forces and motions experienced by the Plaintiff can be an important first step when evaluating injury causation.
