Diffuse Axonal Injury Lawyers: Brain Injury Lawyers


Diffuse Axonal Injury occurs when axons (the parts of nerve cells that allow neurons to send messages between them) are disrupted. It is an injury to multiple areas of the brain. It is among the most common of brain injuries and can occur in all types of head injuries, from the most mild to the most severe. Its effects can be devastating and it is, in fact, one of the leading causes of death among people with traumatic brain injury.

Diffuse Axonal Injury does not result from a direct blow to the head; rather, it results from the movement of the brain back and forth in the skull as a result of a sudden deceleration or acceleration. These injuries are often seen in automobile accidents, sports accidents, violent falls, shaken baby syndrome, and other flexion/extension injury scenarios.

Symptoms of Diffuse Axonal Injury can include loss of consciousness for moments or hours, although loss of consciousness does not occur in all cases. Diagnostics include cognitive evaluation, MRI, CT Scan, Evoked Potentials, and EEGs.

Immediate treatment includes measures to reduce inflammation. Long-term care often requires a multidisciplinary staff, including doctors, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and other specialists, to devise an individualized program designed to return the patient to the maximum level of function. The rehabilitation phase may include:

  • Speech therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Recreational therapy
  • Adaptive equipment training
  • Counseling

Prognosis of Diffuse Axonal Injury is uncertain. In some cases, complete recovery occurs. In others, permanent impairment can range from the mild to the severe.

Proof of causation and proof of the full extent of impact on daily living of Diffuse Axonal Injury requires knowledge of or experience with the injury.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
