E. Marcus Davis Has Prosecuted Over 100 Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

Cases have ranged from mild to catastrophic for brain injury survivors.

His knowledge about brain injuries allowed him to help clients whose cases might not have been considered by other less informed lawyers.

Using his expertise in this area, he published “Mild to Moderate Brain Injury – A Silent Epidemic Needing to be Heard” in the magazine of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, The Verdict, published “Mild to Moderate Brain Injury” in the magazine of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Trial Magazine, and has co-chaired numerous seminars on the subject of brain injuries for lawyers.

In 2000, he was co-chairman in the annual fundraising campaign for the Brain Injury Association of Georgia. The article and seminar instructed attorneys in the field on the emergence of new diagnostic tools being used by neurologists and neuropsychologists and the importance of previously ignored symptoms of brain injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

An experienced trial lawyer should recognize a mild to moderate brain injury case even when the client arrives undiagnosed. Often, the client may experience dizziness, overwhelming fatigue, vision problems, concentration problems, memory problems, mood swings, and even depression.

Recognizing some of the signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury and making sure that the client’s treating physician refers the brain injured person for proper diagnostic evaluation is part of the obligation of the trial lawyer in this field.

A good personal injury lawyer should concern himself with obtaining appropriate specialized medical help for his clients while also fulfilling the more traditional lawyer’s role of helping clients obtain full and fair compensation for of their injuries, physical, mental and emotional. After all, a lawyer should serve his client not only in the court room, but also as an advisor to the client who has just experienced tragedy and needs the appropriate medical care in order to recover as quickly as possible.

He also belongs to and donates to the Brain Injury Association of Georgia and served as co-fundraising chairman in 2000. Through many cases, Mr. Davis has acquired a wealth of brain injury textbooks, articles, and demonstrative exhibits that he uses to keep his knowledge in this field fresh as well as to educate clients, judges, and juries in this complicated area of medicine.
