The Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury in Children

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the single most common cause of death and disability in children in the United States. TBI can come about after a serious car accident that caused a blow to the child’s head, an accident on the playground, or an accident while playing a sport.

Regardless of what caused the traumatic brain injury, the child will suffer serious injuries that will have long-term effects on his or her life.

Long-term Consequences of Child TBI

The following are some serious long-term consequences that a victim child of a traumatic brain injury accident can face:

Cognitive defects – a TBI can leave the child facing difficulty remembering certain things, focusing on schoolwork, or getting involved and paying attention during certain activities.

  • Behavioral changes – a TBI can cause the child to experience irritability, anxiety, and depression. These behaviors are often difficult for the child victim to control.

  • Emotional strains – the road to recovery after a TBI is often very difficult and may lead to permanent physical and mental deficits. This can create emotional stress on both the victim and his or her family, who may have a difficult time coping with the injuries.

Hire an Experienced Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

If your child suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness, you should file a personal injury claim on behalf of your child to seek the rightful compensation for your child’s injuries. Holding the responsible parties accountable for their wrongful actions will not undo the harm caused, but it can help secure financial compensation for your child’s altered condition in the future.

In order to obtain the full extent of the compensation that your child deserves, you should immediately consult with an experienced New York traumatic brain injury lawyer.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
