Brain injury and motor vehicle accidents: the impact on children

In the past, it was thought that children did not suffer from brain injuries in the same way that adults do. Research indicates that this is not correct, and children who suffer brain injuries in motor vehicle accidents could suffer life-long consequences, even from a minor impact. Understanding brain injuries in children is an important step toward securing needed assistance and medical care.

Children who suffer brain injuries often face unique challenges. They may endure changes in their personalities, struggles in school or have trouble with memory retention. The recovery time for a child will differ on a case-by-case basis, but it could result in years of medical treatment, therapy and extra expenses associated with recovery. Ultimately, even a "minor" brain injury could have a major impact on a Pennsylvania family. 

Every child is unique, and the cognitive and physical impact of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) will vary based on the location and the severity of the injury. West Virginia readers will note that even when in a backseat, a child can suffer serious consequences in a car accident. These injuries, even if they appear to be minor, should be taken seriously. Families should be fairly compensated for physical, emotional and financial damages. 

With the help of a Pennsylvania lawyer experienced in car accident cases involving TBIs, a family can have the assurance that their child will have the help that he or she needs. Motor vehicle accidents can result in irreparable damage, but families do not have to face the aftermath alone. Every child has right to a full and fair recovery from a brain injury.
