Missouri Diffuse Axonal Injury Lawyer

Unlike hemorrhagic and ischemic injuries, diffuse axonal injuries aren’t caused by a blow to the head, they are caused as a result of a person’s brain moving back and forth in a volatile motor vehicle accident, fall, or other severe accident. The result of suffering a diffuse axonal injury can cause permanent brain damage or severe mobility and coordination problems. If you or someone you care about suffered DAI in a traumatic accident, Christopher Dixon and the Missouri Diffuse Axonal Injury Lawyers at the Dixon Injury Firm care about your case. Our aggressive attorneys will do everything in their power to ensure that you are informed of your rights and taken care of while in recovery.

Symptoms of Diffuse Axonal Injuries | Diffuse Axonal Injury Lawyer in Missouri

If a victim has long-term symptoms after a severe accident, such as confusion, nausea/vomiting, fatigue, or coordination/speech issues, this could indicate a diffuse axonal injury. In mild to moderate diffuse axonal injuries, such as concussions, if swelling is identified right after it occurs, via a CT or MRI scan, the effects can be mitigated with the help of steroids.

But, in more severe cases, DAI cannot be treated with surgery and often leaves victims in an unresponsive state, in need of extensive rehabilitation (possibly lifelong), or result in death. If an accident has left someone you love unconscious or caused you to need rehabilitation from DAI, you deserve reimbursement for any expenses that you have experienced.

Typically, if a victim requires rehabilitation for their diffuse axonal injuries, the recovery process includes:

  • Physical therapy to regain coordination and balance
  • Speech therapy to stimulate lost motor skills
  • Counseling to assist with any mental or emotional issues
  • Adaptive equipment training to regain the ability to perform everyday tasks such as driving
  • Occupational and recreational therapy to stimulate desensitized or deadened nerve endings

In addition to undergoing rehabilitation for diffuse axonal injuries, it’s essential to gather evidence of the accident that caused your injuries, proof of the other party’s negligence, and consult an experienced Diffuse Axonal Injury Lawyer in Missouri about your case.

Diffuse Axonal Injury Claims in Missouri

Rehabilitation for diffuse axonal injuries, or expenses associated with medical treatment for a DAI victim in a coma, can result in expensive and overwhelming medical bills and other damages. After a traumatic accident, the last thing that victims and their families need to worry about is how they are going to afford ongoing treatment or other unexpected expenses.

Filing a compelling claim against the negligent party in an accident typically allows victims to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and other damages. However, settlements can vary significantly based on factors such as the status of the victim’s DAI (in rehabilitation, comatose, vegetative), what caused the accident, and if a Missouri Diffuse Axonal Injury Lawyer is representing the victim.
