Personal Injury: Diffuse Axonal Injuries

David Adams May 5, 2017

A Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) can result from a shaking or strong rotation of the head, as with Shaken Baby Syndrome, or by rotational forces, such as with a car accident. Injury occurs because the unmoving brain lags behind the movement of the skull, causing brain structures to tear. As more is learned in the medical field about head injuries, the more it is found that even moderate speed car collisions can result in permanent changes and effects in the adult brain.
