Lexi Robinson was a bright, outgoing and athletic middle school student who ran track, played lacrosse and attended many sporting events with her friends. While walking with her friends after a volleyball game, she was hit by a car in a crosswalk.
At the time, her injuries appeared superficial – a broken tooth, a broken nose and bruising on her body. However, within six months, her personality began to change. She went from being happy and outgoing to moody and irritable, lost interest in the activities she loved, and suffered from headaches and fatigue.
Lexi’s mother Ann Marie, herself a former client, contacted NLE Law. Thanks to their insight into brain injury, NLE recommended that Lexi see a number of specialists who diagnosed her with damage to the pituitary gland. Lexi’s brain injury was causing a growth hormone deficiency, chronic headaches and narcolepsy, which made it impossible for her to get enough rest to learn or do well in school.
From the beginning, NLE was focused on helping Lexi get the best possible medical care and rebuild her life.
