Why should I hire an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney?
The casual observer may assume that the victim of a brain injury is hardly suffering. Outwardly, the injured victim may look fine, even act fairly normally. However, internally, the victim may be suffering mental as well as physical damage that impacts every area of his life. It is vital to hire an experienced attorney who knows how to collect proper evidence and how to portray that evidence in a way that fully communicates the situation to a jury. Without the help of a brain injury attorney, the victim might receive little to no compensation, and certainly not the compensation they deserve.
What is the most common type of mild brain injury?
An injury to the brain presents a complex set of problems. Most mild brain injuries involve diffuse axonal injuries. This means that the white matter of the brain has been injured. This is the part of the brain cell that transmits information. A diffuse axonal injury means that the connections have been twisted or damaged so that the information is being transmitted incorrectly, or not at all. Explaining the extent of these injuries is difficult without the help of a skilled brain injury attorney who can communicate clearly to a jury concerning the nature of the problem.
What is the difference between anatomical imaging and functional brain imaging?
Anatomical imaging shows the structure of the brain and can show the injury that has been suffered. On the other hand, functioning imagery shows the functioning or metabolism of the brain, not the anatomy. It shows how the brain is malfunctioning. An attorney needs to evaluate both the physical damage, but more than that, the functioning of the brain to get a more accurate grasp of the situation. Certain tests such as the EEG, PET scan, and SPECT scan can give a more comprehensive perspective.
