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

I was a victim in a personal injury case long before I became an attorney. This course further perpetuated my sediment that it is difficult to understand what a client has gone through unless you have a walked in their shoes. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and took away several good ideas. Thank you.
