Traumatic Brain Injury Featured Event
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) cases can be some of the most challenging and technical kinds of cases to litigate. There are special considerations any attorney - plaintiff or defense - needs to understand in order to competently represent a TBI client, including potentially complex issues around the science of brain injuries. This seminar will show why brain injury cases differ significantly from "run of the mill" personal injury cases. Course Planner, Kenny Berger, has put together an outstanding and experienced faculty of plaintiff and defense practitioners who will lead you through these complex and challenging issues from both sides of the adversarial process.
This special seminar also features a fantastic and eminently practical mental health hour by SC Bar Lawyers Helping Lawyers Education and Outreach Coordinator, Michael Abro, who will share valuable information about secondary traumatic stress in attorneys. You'll not only get your bi-annual SA/MH credit, but will also learn what secondary traumatic stress is, how it can negatively impact your mental health as a practicing attorney, and also acquire tools to overcome secondary traumatic stress in your own life.
Whether you are a plaintiff or defense attorney, this powerful (and CLE Big Ticket-covered) program will enlighten and equip you to better represent your TBI client. The SC Bar CLE Division is pleased to offer "Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation."
