Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 17, 2006
Putting the language of personal injury into terms people can easily understand is the first step toward recovery according to a new Website that presents "A Practical Reference Guide to Personal Injury Terminology, from A-Z."
Personalinjuryterms.com was created to help those who have suffered a personal injury, as well as those who provide services to prevent or treat personal injury, such as public safety organizations, physical rehabilitation centers, medical and legal service firms as well as graduate students. The comprehensive Website explores the latest terminology used in such complex areas as brain and spinal injury, musculoskeletal and occupational injury, and includes a library of articles in addition to the personal injury glossary of terms and illustrations.
"Understanding the language used to define a physical or brain injury in medical and legal terms is essential for getting help in today's society," said Betsylew R. Miale-Gix, the editor-in-chief of PersonalInjuryterms.com. Ms. Miale-Gix, a practicing personal injury attorney in Washington state, is the co-editor of the educational pamphlet "Common Legal Terms in a Personal Injury Case" and writes and speaks on issues of law and personal injury. "The goal of our editorial staff is to contribute to a mutual understanding of personal injury issues and concepts in no uncertain terms," she said.
Co-editor Richard Adler is one of the country's most respected authorities on personal injury and the author of the new book, Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury. Mr. Adler, chairs the Executive Board of the Brain Injury Association of Washington, has also authored Spinal Trauma and the Personal Injury Case; Medical Aspects of Soft Tissue Injuries; and the book Survival Guide: Chiropractic Practice Guidelines.
Copies of the definitive new book on Brain Injury are being offered free to Washington state residents through the new Personalinjuryterms.com Website.
The PersonalInjuryTerms.com website acknowledges a wide range of contributors throughout the legal and medical fields, such as noted attorney John R. Alexander, Kathleen R. Bell, M.D., Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington Medical Center, Gary Stobbe, M.D. Board Certified Neurologist sub-specializing in the fields of cognitive and behavioral neurology, Michael Weinstein, M.D. a specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Virginia Mason Medical Center since 1986, and Bill Nelson, Information and Resources Coordinator for the Brain Injury Association of Washington, among many others.
