“Proving Permanent Injuries” at New Jersey Association for Justice Boardwalk Seminar 2023

On April 27, Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck shareholders Nancy Winkler and Dan Jeck presented a program titled “Proving Permanent Injuries” to New Jersey Association for Justice members during the organization’s Boardwalk Seminar 2023 event.

During their program, Nancy and Dan, along with co-presenter Mark S. Wagner, Ph.D., ABN, FACPN, ABVE, explored techniques lawyers and medical experts can use to educate, explain, and prove to judges and juries that those lawyers’ clients suffered significant permanent injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, when those clients do not appear at first glance to be injured at all.

“Sometimes, people suffer permanent, debilitating injuries as the result of someone else’s misconduct, but to the untrained eye these people do not appear to be injured,” said Nancy. “Under the law, people are to be compensated for the economic and non-economic damages they incur because of their injuries and not for how injured they appear to be. Our presentation focused on strategies for making sure judges and juries understand that just because someone doesn’t appear to be seriously injured doesn’t mean they’re not.”

“When Eisenberg Rothweiler attorneys present at conferences like this, we show other attorneys in the region that our firm strives to use effective and innovative techniques to secure the best results for our clients,” said Dan. “In addition, when our attorneys attend educational conferences like this, we hear how other attorneys approach their cases, which can provide us with new techniques we can use to make even more persuasive arguments for why our clients deserve the damages they’re seeking.”

The New Jersey Association for Justice is a statewide association of over 2,500 members in private practice and public service, paralegals, law clerks, law students, and law school graduates not yet admitted to the bar. The organization is dedicated to protecting New Jersey’s families by working to preserve and strengthen the laws for safer products and workplaces, a cleaner environment, and quality health care.

It takes a specific mindset, specialized skills and substantial resources. The types of cases we handle are not the average personal injury. They involve severe, permanent injuries to people that radically affect their lives forever, or in some instances, even cause their death.
