Understanding Epilepsy in Children - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Epilepsy is a condition in the brain where a person has at least two seizures over time. The basic working units of the brain are nerve cells called neurons. They send chemical and electrical messages to each other, as well as to glands and muscles. Everything we think, feel, and do is a result of this activity. Normally, these messages are sent in an orderly manner. If your child has epilepsy, groups of neurons send a lot of messages all at once. This abnormal surge of electrical activity is called a seizure. There are many types of seizures, but they can be grouped into two main categories. The first category, called generalized seizures, affects the whole brain all at once. The second category of seizures is called partial or focal seizures. They affect only one part of the brain. Symptoms can vary depending on the type of seizure. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, muscles spasms, strange sensations, seeing or smelling things that aren't there, confusion, staring into space, or rapid blinking. Most seizures last from a few seconds to a few minutes without causing harm. If a seizure lasts longer than five minutes or if a person is hurt or in distress during the seizure, call 911. In most cases, the cause of epilepsy is unknown, but it may be caused by other conditions in the brain such as injuries, infections, birth defects, strokes, or tumors. If you have questions about epilepsy, talk to your healthcare provider.

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."

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

Karen M. Talbot
Silverman Bernheim & Vogel, P.C.

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."
