The plaintiff in this case suffered a head injury which resulted in painful headaches, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, personality changes, and impaired vision among other symptoms. Mr. Acard thought it was important for the jury to know what the girl went through, so he hired TTS Biographer Sarah Lunham to help tell her story. Sarah interviewed the young plaintiff and collected information about her academic career, social life, family, and plans for the future. Sarah spoke with girl’s parents, along with other relatives and friends, in order to gain a better understanding of who she was before the incident, and how she’d changed as a result.
Sarah relied on lay witnesses to showcase the damages in this case. The injured party couldn’t comprehend her symptoms well enough to articulate them, making her the worse person to tell her story. Sarah compared statements from lay witnesses from before and after the incident and crafted an insightful and captivating story. Attorney Brian Acard used the Client Biography as a road map during his trial prep.
