There is 1 comment on POV: Setting the Record Straight on Traumatic Brain Injury

  1. There is a new form of head injury now proved in outcomes of a product liability suit taking place. The CA courts have determined brain injuries from a procedure called electroshock or ECT. Being performed at leading facilities. It is no longer just for depression nor used as a last resort. It has no FDA clearance for safety or even effectiveness. It generates 5 billion annually in the US alone. Long term outcomes of electrical trauma, and that is what this is, includes CTE and ALS. Dr. Bennet Omalu, famous for findings of CTE in the NFL is now on record stating the same is anticipated in ECT patients given repeated brain injuries from electrical trauma.  All bodily systems impacted by this mechanism of trauma. Increase in suicide following this procedure. Two class action lawsuits taking place. One is in England and the national product liability suit is in the US around ECT devices. If you have had ECT please contact the DK law group to see if you qualify. Brain injury programs recognize electrical trauma for causation. See youtube videos under heading ectjustice to learn more. Inform yourselves and please have discussions on public social media so others are aware and can make informed decisions around their health care. We are working to bring additional types of suits around this issue as consent is fallible. Patients are showing damages on testing. Given Covid and the mental distress many are at risk for being offered this and need the truth.
