California Brain Injury Association and Scarlett Law Group Conduct Medical/Legal Conference on Traumatic Brain Injury November 21 - 23rd, 2008

The California Brain Injury Association (CALBIA), a non-profit membership organization providing information, education, advocacy and support for those affected by brain injury, together with the Scarlett Law Group, a law firm representing individuals sustaining traumatic brain injury, invite you to participate in one of the nation’s most important professional medical/legal conferences dealing with traumatic brain injury: State of the Art Medical and Rehabilitative Care in Brain Injury: Clinical and Legal implications.

(Vocus) October 28, 2008 --

WHAT: Traumatic Brain Injury Medical/Legal Professionals Conference
WHEN: November 21-23, 2008
WHERE: Silverado Country Club Resort and Spa, 1600 Atlas Peak Rd., Napa, CA

The statistics regarding the frequency of traumatic brain injury are frightening: Every 19 seconds an individual sustains a traumatic brain injury. Of the 1.4 million who sustain a traumatic brain injury each year in the United States, 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized, and 1.1 million are treated and released from an emergency department. "Traumatic brain injury has become the signature injury of our troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan." Traumatic brain injury truly is the nation's silent epidemic.

Given the tragic statistics of traumatic brain injury, and given the tremendous burden traumatic brain injury places on our health care system, the need for this conference is overwhelmingly apparent. Attendees have ranked this conference among the best educational conferences in the country.

Proceeds from this conference benefit the California Brain Injury Association entirely. Topics include cutting edge diagnostic techniques, acute as well as post-acute treatment of the mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury patient, and evolving successful rehabilitation treatment modalities. Legal techniques involving trial presentation, as well as education about the injury itself, will be extensively covered. Faculty includes the nation's leading medical and legal practitioners and experts. Practice areas represented by faculty include neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, physiatry, speech, occupational, vocational therapy, as well as legal education, medical education and presentation.

The Scarlett Law Group is one of the nation's premier law firms, representing individuals and their families in catastrophic personal injury, traumatic brain injury and wrongful death cases, and is known for its achievements in the courtroom, and its contributions to the community. Randall H. Scarlett, principal, has achieved numerous multimillion dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of his clients, and has been involved in precedent-setting cases such as the Marcos Human Rights Abuse Cases, MDL 840, (obtaining a record-setting $1.3 billion exemplary damage reward on behalf of those tortured and unlawfully imprisoned by Philippine dictator Ferdinand E. Marcos), and the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Litigation, (wherein he actively served on the Plaintiffs Coordinating Committee). Mr. Scarlett sits on the Board of Directors of the California Brain Injury Association, and regularly volunteers his time in order to help survivors of traumatic brain injury and their family members.
