What is a Symptom a Parent Can Look for with a Child Who May Have a Suffered a Brain Injury?

Posted on December 19, 2018 to

Typically concussions in children show up as headaches, feeling tired, lethargic, maybe just not seeming the same. Especially individuals who rear young toddlers, for example, who may not be able to articulate to their parents, “Mom, I feel different.”So, if a child has been involved in an accident of any kind, and a parent is aware of that, they should really be astute to understanding and recognizing that they need to be evaluating that child for potential brain injury. I have represented children with brain injuries and it’s both sad and rewarding at the same time, because you’re really helping an individual who needs it. But I absolutely have represented individuals who are young, who I try to encourage good brain health before they resume their activities. A lawyer who represents somebody with a TBI needs to first focus in on what is going on with that person’s brain health to try to help that person get to the right experts and the right individuals who can give them the best chance of recovery.
