A Small Girl with Preexisting Seizure Disorder recovers for recent Exacerbation

A Small Girl with Preexisting Seizure Disorder recovers for recent Exacerbation. A three-year-old client of the firm was involved in a rearend automobile accident. She had a significant preexisting history of seizures due to premature birth. While under control, her seizure disorder continued to dampen her learning abilities and she was under accelerated care at the time of the accident.

After the accident she exhibited a seizure for about 2 minutes but no others for more than 2 months. However, the parents noted changes in the wonderful child’s behavior. Investigation did not turn up any physiological changes caused by the accident that could explain the increased seizures and behavioral setbacks.
Michael Bock and James Ballidis of Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie obtained all prior and extensive records and conducted a review of behaviors, improvement and comparison deficits. During that effort it was documented by therapists and evaluators that she was progressing behaviorally in the months following the accident, but at a reduced rate.
The insurance company for the adverse driver argued that the behavioral delay was a result of her pre-existing disease and not the accident. At recent mediation, the child recovered $100,000 to be put into an account for her future needs. She is doing well at present and has continued to improve after the accident and guided therapy. Congratulations to Michael Bock and Jim Ballidis for their contribution to the welfare of this darling girl.
