Brain injuries in children are one of the hardest traumas to deal with, especially for the parents of the injured child. If you have the misfortune of having a child who has suffered a head injury, it is imperative for you to know the seriousness of a brain injury and take appropriate action.
Brain injuries can range in intensity from a little bump to a painful bruise, from a concussion, post-concussive syndrome, to a fractured skull.
When your child’s brain injury is due to someone else’s negligence, you have a right to seek reparations, including compensation for your child’s costly medical bills. To achieve this, it is vital that you benefit from the expertise of a qualified brain injury attorney. Eisenberg Law Offices, located in Madison, Wisconsin, has skilled brain injury attorneys who have vast experience in such personal injury cases. Our team of lawyers will relieve you of the nuisance of sorting out complex legal issues, and will meticulously represent you on your case.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, 1.4 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each year. The most vulnerable are children. Common causes of brain injury in children are automobile accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle crashes, falls, sports-related injuries or child abuse. The intensity of the injury depends on the severity of the accident and the resulting trauma that occurs in the brain.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs as a result of an external force, for example, rapid acceleration or deceleration or impact blast waves to the brain inside the skull. This results in a temporary or permanently damaged brain and it is a major cause of death and severe injury, especially in children.
The effects of TBI are physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral. On a physical level, TBI survivors may have little function of limbs, impaired speech and loss of thinking capacity. TBI can also lead to emotional problems in children and may cause personality changes. This means children can suffer from depression, apathy, irritability, anger, anxiety or hypomania. Children may be unable to control anger or impulsiveness and become more prone to disorders, such as obsessive compulsive disorder or schizophrenia. Suicidal tendencies increase and children may become more aggressive than normal. They may also have a higher risk of contracting epilepsy. If someone you love sustains a brain injury, contact Eisenberg’s experienced brain injury attorneys.
Brain injury treatment ranges from initial life-saving methods, to long term rehabilitation and medical care. A child with a brain injury may also require surgery to remove blood clots or relieve intracranial pressure. Acute treatment may involve putting the patient into a drug-induced coma to reduce swelling of the brain and providing preventive medication to minimize the risk of epilepsy/seizures.
The cost of brain injury treatment can exceed tens of thousands of dollars per year. A life care plan alone, the cost of taking care of someone for the rest of their life, can cost millions of dollars. If you have a loved one suffering from a head injury due to somebody else’s negligence, you can get maximum compensation by contacting ELO’s expert brain injury lawyers.
