Tom Metier Speaks at Craig Hospital Brain Injury Summit

FORT COLLINS, CO – January 9, 2012 – Trial attorney Tom Metier delivered a
presentation today on Dispelling Myths Related to Brain Injury Litigation at the 2012 Brain Injury Summit hosted by Craig Hospital in Beaver Creek. The three-day conference, which began today, features a gathering of nationally recognized experts in the field of traumatic brain injuries, including doctors, nurses, attorneys, researchers and
educators.

Tom Metier also participated in a panel discussion on Case Preparation, Settlement, Restorative Mediation and Damages Claims in Brain Injury Litigation. Traumatic brain injuries can be difficult to diagnose. It can also be hard for a jury to understand the full physical and emotional impact these injuries can have on patients and their families.

“Explaining complex medical issues to juries can be difficult,” said Metier. “As we tell our story to the jury, it is important for them to understand that these are real people facing serious emotional and physical damage.”

Craig Hospital is a world-class nonprofit rehabilitation hospital specializing in brain and spinal cord injuries. Presentations at the conference will include topics such as sports concussions, military injuries, advances in diagnosis and treatment, and legal strategies.
