Jim Kjar and Hanna Dunn win case involving traumatic brain injury.

Plaintiff was a patient in a large Southern California hospital. She claimed that while she was unattended by her nurses in a hallway waiting for her medication that she fell, lost consciousness and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Plaintiff relied on MRI studies and multiple experts who testified that she suffered a structural injury to her mid brain. The defense claimed that there was no breach of the standard of care by the nursing staff and disputed the MRI findings or that plaintiff suffered a permanent brain injury. A defense award was rendered by the judge.
