Pediatric Concussions: Are we mislabeling these cases

Published by Ontario Trial Lawyers Association
and Kansas Trial Lawyers Association
Learning Objectives
  • Effect of concussions on the visual system
  • Eye teaming issues and reading efficiency
  • Visual assessment "beyond 20/20" in pediatric concussions
  • How eye teaming issues fit AMA guidelines--missed opportunity for better rehab access for clients?
  • Standardized questionnaires and where to send children once a concussion is suspected






Summary

The ramifications of pediatric concussions are important for personal injury lawyers to be aware of when representing a child, especially where grade report cards showed the child was performing well academically pre-injury and academic performance subsequently worsened post-injury.

Dr. Patrick Quaid will share his experience and research, published in both optometric and medical journals, on the effects of concussions on the visual system, including the effect of eye teaming issues on reading efficiency. 

Joining Dr. Quaid will be trial attorney Michelle Jorge, past Director on the Board of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and a former AAJ State Delegate and Board of Governor.
