A child’s brain is much softer than a fully developed brain. The possibility of a child suffering a severe brain injury in an accident is much higher than it is for an adult. In addition, a brain injury suffered by a child is more likely to do permanent brain damage, sometimes leaving the child impaired for life.
Young children often lack the communication skills to report symptoms of a brain injury. Parents are often the first to notice that their child is not himself or herself. Symptoms that a child brain injury has occurred include:
- Behavioral changes
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Inability to concentrate
- Loss of interest in normal activities
- Loss of appetite
- Sensitivity to light or sounds
- Loss of short-term memory
If your child has suffered a brain injury, it’s important to seek a doctor’s help as soon as possible. The symptoms may not go away and could be a sign of permanent damage. If your child’s brain injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you should also have your case reviewed by an experienced attorney.
