Our brain injury solicitors have helped many families over the years who have been unfortunate enough to be affected by child brain injury. We also work closely with Headway, the brain injury association. Because of this, we have a good understanding of what you are going through as well as the worries and concerns you are likely to have at this difficult time.
Brain injuries are sometimes referred to as Acquired Brain Injuries and they can fall into two categories: Traumatic Brain Injury and Non-traumatic Brain Injury. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the victim sustains a forceful strike to the head by an external object.
On the other hand, a non-traumatic brain injury is something that can be stimulated following a disease such as a brain tumour.
Brain injuries are permanent and the consequences are often far-reaching, usually affecting the whole of the family unit because of the amount of practical care required in most cases.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of some of the possible side-effects of a child brain injury.
The effects of a brain injury may not be known until a much later date, possibly years after an injury is acquired. The brain carries on growing well into adulthood and therefore certain parts of the brain are not required until that time. It can sometimes be only then that it is clear there has been damage to that portion of the brain, hence the term, a ‘hidden disability’.
Joanne Waring has been exceptional throughout, keeping myself updated on a regular basis. Personal approach with guidance when required.
