Our attorneys work solely on a contingency fee basis, meaning we won’t charge you anything unless (and until) we recover compensation on your child’s behalf.

Pediatric Brain Injury Diagnosis and Future Outlook

Pediatric brain injuries can lead to serious complications such as cerebral palsy, and often present difficulties when it comes to reaching developmental milestones. Treatment options are available, but the likelihood of improvement usually depends on the extent of the damage, in addition to how quickly treatment begins.

Not all pediatric brain injuries are immediately apparent. That being said, it is important to take your child to a specialists so they can run tests if you suspect something isn’t right. CT scans as well as MRIs can show the full extent of a traumatic brain injury, helping doctors mitigate complications that may manifest as a result.

Here are some of the most-common signs of a pediatric brain injury:

  • Dizziness
  • Change in personality
  • Extremes in behavior (such as unexplained aggression)
  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Sleep issues
  • Headaches
  • Seizures
  • Blurred vision

Brain Injuries at Birth

One of the most-common ways an infant can suffer brain damage is due to oxygen deprivation during labor or delivery. While it’s important to remember than not all birth injuries are caused by malpractice, your doctor also isn’t going to admit to you that they committed medical malpractice.

If you suspect that your child’s brain injury was caused by a medical mistake or malpractice on behalf of a doctor or nurse, we urge you to call 1-800-ATTORNEY for a free consultation.

Other Common Causes of Pediatric Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can occur in a wide variety of circumstances, including car accidents. The rapid deceleration caused by a car crash can bruise a child’s delicate brain within the skull, causing trauma to the brain or hemorrhaging due to burst blood vessels.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is yet another cause of traumatic head injuries in children, which is rarely talked about due to the fact that it falls under child abuse. Perpetrators are usually people within the family that the child is related to, but may also be caregivers, daycare teachers, or a babysitter. The rough manhandling of children (specifically violently shaking them) can cause brain swelling as well as internal bleeding within the brain, the symptoms of which may or may not be apparent within the first day of the event.
