Closed Head Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) - Coup and Contrecoup - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration series depicts a closed head coup and contrecoup injury resulting in traumatic brain injury (TBI). As the drawings show, force from a head-on collision causes the head to move rapidly forward. The brain, within the cranial cavity, suffers a contrecoup injury by striking the inside of the back of the skull, opposite side of the impacting force. Secondarily, the coup (or 'blow') part of the injury, occurs when the brain strikes the interior of front of the skull.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."

Joseph M. Prodor

"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.
President

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
