Louise Cardillo, R.N. B.S., Cardillo Consultants:"Legal Nurse Consulting firm for ten years. I am a strong liason between attorney's, clients and experts. The strength of all cases is in meticulous attention to detail of medical records and choosing the appropriate expert. This aspect of consulting will bring your cases to closure with damages often above expectation. Experience in this field is critical to the success of working with a Legal Nurse Consultant. In addition, the nurse must have a strong clinical foundation and education.

Traumatic Brain Injury Information Page, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS):"Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden physical assault on the head causes damage to the brain. The damage can be focal, confined to one area of the brain, or diffuse, involving more than one area of the brain. TBI can result from a closed head injury or a penetrating head injury. A closed head injury occurs when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, but the object does not break through the skull. A penetrating head injury occurs when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. Several types of traumatic injuries can affect the head and brain. A skull fracture occurs when the bone of the skull cracks or breaks. A depressed skull fracture occurs when pieces of the broken skull press into the tissue of the brain. This can cause bruising of the brain tissue, called a contusion. A contusion can also occur in response to shaking of the brain within the confines of the skull, an injury called "countrecoup." Shaken baby syndrome is a severe form of head injury that occurs when a baby is shaken forcibly enough to cause extreme countrecoup injury. Damage to a major blood vessel within the head can cause a hematoma, or heavy bleeding into or around the brain. The severity of a TBI can range from a mild concussion to the extremes of coma or even death. A coma is a profound or deep state of unconsciousness. Symptoms of a TBI may include headache, nausea, confusion or other cognitive problems, a change in personality, depression, irritability, and other emotional and behavioral problems. Some people may have seizures as a result of a TBI."
