So…the case I have to do for Trial Technique has to do with assault of a hockey player by another player during a game. My partner and I are the prosecution.
HAVE I EVER MENTIONED I HAVE A SEVERE EYE PHOBIA!
Emergency Room Report
Injury: Rt eye trauma w/ marked swelling. Laceration at 45. lateral aspect of right orbit.
OH IT GETS WORSE
CT exam was performed in the axial and direct coronal planes and demonstrates blow-out fractures involving the right orbital floor and right laminia papyracea. On the direct coronals, there appears to be a moderate herniation of soft tissue into the maxillary sinus.
NO I AM NOT KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS MY EVIDENCE!!!
While the patient under general endotracheal anesthesia, he was prepped and draped in the usual sterile fashion. A subcillary incision was made along the right lower eyelid. Dissection was performed in a preseptail plane down to the right infra-orbital rim….The orbital floor fracture revealed herniation of periorbital fat and using a pair of long forceps, the fat was gently excised.
I NEED NOT GO ON! ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME KNOWS HOW TRAUMATIZING THIS IS FOR ME!!! OH MY GOD!
And just TYPING this made me squirm, several times. Ask the nice man sitting next to me making wisecracks “An eye for an eye…”
Anyone out there willing to learn my witness script? I need two…it might be worth the price of admission to see me prosecute an EYEBALL CASE!
