Brain injuries are one of the leading causes of death in infants and children. In addition, traumatic brain injuries are one of the leading causes of acquired disability in children.
Unfortunately, when your child suffers a brain injury, as a parent you have a very difficult role to play. You must help your child rest and heal. You must also advocate for your child to ensure anyone who may have caused or contributed to the accident is held legally and financially responsible. Finally, you have to manage your own fear and grief, as you help your child through this challenge and recognize that a brain injury may have a lasting impact on your child’s life.
At The Ernst Law Group, we help families and children who have suffered brain injuries as a result of:
- Vehicle Crashes
- Golf Cart Crashes
- Playground Injuries
- Sports Related Injuries
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
Brain injury cases in children have to be handled with particular care. After some time, a child may appear physically fine, but the effects of the brain injury can linger long past physical injuries. Brain injuries in children also cause symptoms that are similar to a number of regularly diagnosed childhood maladies, including ADD and ADHD.
