As a result of their injuries, PCS clients are generally unaware that they have sustained a closed head injury nor do they appreciate the impact of the injury upon their lives. In many cases the consequences of such an injury are quite subtle and difficult to detect in casual conversation.

Brain injury lawyers often use animators that help jurors understand the seriousness of brain injury. An animation need not be exact, but it must be based on the medical evidence and a judge will usually allow the animation if it’s illustrative, not deceptive and helps a jury understand an injury.
