San Francisco Personal Injury
A diffuse axonal brain injury occurs when a violent force tears the axons (connections between the brain cells). This impairs communication between brain cells and can result in coma and unconsciousness. When the victim retains consciousness, it can inhibit brain function in unpredictable and subtle ways. In contrast to a penetrating head injury in which the damage is localized, DAI can cause widespread damage across a large portion of the brain.
The most common causes of diffuse axonal brain injuries are:
A diffuse axonal injury (DAI) can be difficult to diagnose because it can’t be revealed by an MRI or CAT scan. Often, the adverse effects of a DAI show up months after the initial diagnosis. It is important, then, that a brain injury victim retains the services of an attorney who is knowledgeable about such injuries, their causes, and their effects.
