Dr. Michael Freeman is one of the leading doctors and epidemiologists in the world on the issue of traumatic injuries and forensic injury causation determinations.  

In Defeating the MIST Defense, Dr. Freeman explains how drivers and passengers can be injured in low speed crashes when there is little or no vehicle damage. Through use of probability, math, research, and common sense, Dr. Freeman teaches you how to prove that there is no such thing as "scientific certainty" in defense biomechanics testimony. He discusses how to discredit defense witness testimony who rely upon junk science as the basis for their opinions. You will learn how to explain to a judge and jury why a biomechanist cannot determine your patient’s injuries, and why the treating doctors should be the only witnesses qualified to testify regarding injuries.

You will learn why there is no direct comparison between everyday activities such as a sneeze or sitting down in a chair and a traumatic injury caused by a car crash. And, as Dr. Freeman teaches, you will learn why probability does not work retrospectively, and how to use the scientific method to invalidate defense experts' opinions. This video provides insight as to how injured people and their lawyers can win these cases at trial.

Dr. Freeman is one of the world's leading authorities on low vehicle damage collisions, and the minor impact soft tissue ("MIST") defense. He is the author of the text Forensic Epidemiology: Principles and Practice, and many journal articles on the topic of injury causation.  His background as a forensic epidemiologist, physician, and crash reconstructionist allows him to disprove one of the most common and effective auto defense litigation tactics.
