By Attorney Gordon Johnson



Nancy and her father Otto (our next interview) were injured in a winter wreck, when a car hit theirs head on. Nancy was nine at the time of her injury, a skull fracture and severe brain injury. Her Mom’s period of waiting for her emergence was complicated by her father’s mild brain injury and broken ankle. Nancy did return to school early after her injury and has now graduated from high school. Hers is a classic story of remarkable recovery of a child, that has nonetheless left her with major deficits, particularly with significantly reduced maturity.
