Our Michigan brain injury lawyers frequently represent children who suffer brain injuries due to trauma from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, play-related accidents, and other accidents.
Children often have the same traumatic brain injury symptoms as adults, but it can be more difficult to determine how a child is suffering. The child may have greater difficulty in communicating the symptoms of the brain injury to an adult. Watch for any of the following symptoms for childhood bran injury:
- Tiredness or listlessness
- Irritability or crankiness
- Changes in eating habits
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Changes in the way the child plays
- Changes in performance at school
- Lack of interest in favorite toys or activities
- Loss of new skills, such as toilet training
- Loss of balance and unsteady walking
The injuries resulting from traumatic brain injuries are often permanent, and result in a variety of traumatic brain injury damages. Cases involving brain injuries have substantial value for both jury verdicts and settlements. This is because of the tremendous costs and expenses related to caring for a brain injured child and the loss of a child's earnings over his or her lifetime.
There are many excellent support groups for brain injury patients in their families throughout the United States that promote treatment, prevention, and education. Most states have strong local chapters of the national associations, including a Michigan chapter.
Parents of children who have sustained a traumatic brain injury should contact Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. immediately to determine their legal rights. Our office will start working on your case immediately and begin gathering the evidence to prove and win your case.
