Project Description

This case involves a young, 12-year-old girl who sustained severe blunt force trauma to her left frontal orbital region while traveling in the front passenger seat when a cinder block projectile flew off of a truck ahead of their family vehicle, crashed through the front windshield, and struck her in the face. The left-sided illustrations demonstrate the severity of the initial blunt force injuries to the soft facial tissues and extensive fractures to the skull and left orbit while the center and right-sided illustrations show the appearance of the plaintiff following the surgical closure of the facial lacerations, surgical fixations of the lateral orbit, and postoperative healing of her facial lacerations. Additional exhibits were created for this case focusing on the mechanism of the blunt force injury, the eye and retinal injuries, as well as the multiple reparative surgeries to the plaintiff’s skull fractures, facial lacerations, eye and orbit.
