REPLAY – TLU Live Las Vegas 2021 – Bejar v. Lopez, TBI/Spine, Jury Selection – Rex Parris & Khail Parris
February 23 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM PST
A rear-end auto v. Motorcycle collision. Officer Bejar was attempting to pull over a third party for speeding. As he activated his lights and sirens, the individual he was pulling over rapidly applied his brakes and turned left onto the shoulder. Officer Bejar rapidly slowed his motorcycle to follow the speeding vehicle. The defendant rear-ended him causing him to be ejected from the motorcycle. He fractured his orbital socket when his face hit the pavement. This caused him to sustain a traumatic brain injury. The defendant claimed that the forces were insufficient to sustain a traumatic brain injury because the officer was wearing a helmet. The defendant also claimed that the speeding motorist and Officer Bejar were to blame for the collision.
Rex Parris & Khail Parris speak about the heat during the jury selection process and how to be ok with it.
