Why Diffuse Brain Injuries Are So Serious

All blows to the head can be potentially serious, but a diffuse brain injury is the most devastating type of brain trauma you can experience. If you or a loved one has sustained a diffuse brain injury, contact our firm, Evans Law, as soon as possible. We serve the New Orleans area with dependable, client-driven personal injury representation.

What Is A 'Diffuse' Head Injury?

A diffuse brain injury is one where the victim is struck over a large section of the head. By comparison, a blow to a specific spot on the head is known as a "focal" brain injury. Diffuse injuries often happen for different reasons than focal injuries. For example, a sudden acceleration or deceleration injury in an auto accident is likely to be diffuse, while a blow from a heavy object is more likely to be focal.

Diffuse brain trauma can put your life in danger due to the blood supply to your brain getting cut off or bleeding on the brain. If you survive, you may suffer brain damage that greatly affects your ability to support your family and live independently.

The Costs Of A Diffuse Injury

Massive brain trauma often requires emergency surgery and a long hospital stay. Later, you might face extensive medical and rehabilitative care. These lifesaving services are very expensive. As your attorneys, we will work hard to ensure that you do not have to pay for your care yourself if you were hurt because of someone else's negligence. We will also get you the maximum compensation available for your lost past and future wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
