SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES...A Q&A with Nick Avgerinos
Is there a case that you believe is representative of the work you do?
There's one particular case that I handled that stands out in my mind as being representative of what we do as attorneys, and how our experience comes into play in terms of how we represent somebody. And the example that I can give you is a case that I'd handled not that long ago with an individual who was working in a, uh.......warehouse.
What were the circumstances?
He had been standing about 20 or 25 feet off the ground on some internal scaffolding. And he fell. And unfortunately, he struck his head on the way down, and he suffered a traumatic, uh, injury to the head, which resulted in a closed head injury.
What makes this case interesting?
Now, those cases are interesting and important for a couple of reasons, because anybody who has handled a head injury, and in particular, a closed head injury case, knows that, oftentimes, the symptoms associated with a closed head injury – or TBI, a traumatic brain injury – can manifest later down the road, so that while an individual may seemingly be symptom-free here and now, there may be a delayed onset of symptoms associated with the brain injury component of the case.
