One of the least understood and complex, and catastrophic,
physical injuries that a person can suffer is to one’s brain,
generally referred to as TBI, for “traumatic brain injury.”
Few law firms have been able to invest the necessary resources
to learn to comprehend TBI, let alone to be able to articulate
its complexities in language that a jury can understand.
Some of the manifestations of TBI are so subtle that they can be
made to seem insignificant by the defense. Learning to
explain the truly horrific consequences of TBI’s otherwise subtle
signs is therefore an art mastered only by a select few lawyers.
At the Gast Law Firm, we
tackled that problem so effectively that, in May, 2002, a
transportation firm based on the East Coast entered into one of
settlements for a single injured Plaintiff in
Nebraska, $4,125,000, in order to avoid a trial with us in a TBI
case. In order to do that, we not only had to master the
medical and psychological literature, we also had to work in
extremely closely and “hands-on” with our client and his
care-givers, so that—at trial—our jurors would truly know, and
feel, what our client was experiencing, and would experience for
the rest of his life.
As we say to each other,
“people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you
care.” At the Gast Law Firm, we care! And our results
