‘Subtle’ Brain Injuries are a difficult and widely misunderstood and under-diagnosed area. The term may suggest that the injury is minor when so often the effect may be extremely serious for the individual and the family and may have a very high value in monetary terms.

This book is a concise guide to identifying those brain injuries which may otherwise go undetected and uncompensated and aims to provide a short guide to help those bringing and defending such claims.

It contains a brief overview, of ‘Subtle’ Traumatic Brain Injury (‘STBI’), what it is and how to recognise it and what causes it, whether this is a psychiatric or organic injury and whether it is open to abuse by malingerers. Also covering the management of a case involving Subtle Brain Injury and what lawyers can do practically to ensure the best outcome in such a case.

The aim is to enlighten this often difficult and under-appreciated side of Personal Injury Litigation.
