One day, in 2006, a man was riding his motorcycle on the way to meet up with some friends. Though he was not wearing a protective helmet, that may not have prevented him from suffering a traumatic brain injury when the car pulled out in front of him. He is not a resident of Massachusetts, but patients with similar injuries may be inspired by his story.
Brain injuries present demanding challenges for preparation of personal injury negotiations and settlement with the wrongdoer's counsel or insurer. Closed head injury in Massachusetts and throughout the country is not always easily proved, and must be established instead by medical inferences and circumstantial probabilities. In such cases, neuropsychologists and similar practitioners are sometimes used to establish a physiological connection with the particular symptoms that the injured victim is suffering.
