Course Description

Many attorneys, particularly in the fields of personal injury and medical malpractice, struggle to understand the injury their clients have suffered. In this course, attorney and forensic expert Mark Silver provides for the lawyer a useful and humanistic tool to better conceptualize and understand the harms that the client has suffered, such that the lawyer in question can advocate for the client in a more informed and holistic manner with a consideration for a broad range of harms that require just compensation.

Learning Objectives:

I. Understand a new tool to add to a personal injury (or medical malpractice) practice to evaluate the harms clients have suffered for evaluation purposes

II. Identify the possible psychological effects of harm from an injury in a much broader manner

III. Recognize how to advocate for your client by understanding a broader range of harms
