Car Accidents Involving Child Injury
When driving a motor vehicle it is very important that safety precautions and rules of the road are adhered to. This is for your protection, other drivers protection and the protection of passengers in your car. While it is often taken for granted, the speed at which an automobile travels carry with it a potential for accident and injury. Even at a lower speed an automobile accident can inflict serious damage. This is especially true of children involved in a motor vehicle accident as they are more susceptible to certain injuries than adults involved in the same accident.

Possible Long-Term Effects Of Childhood Injuries
While children may heal quicker than an adults in some circumstances, there may be long term effects of a childhood injury that does not pertain to adults. For instance, if a child breaks or fractures a bone in an auto accident the growth plates can be impacted. If the injuries are severe enough long term care may be necessary many years after the accident. Potential impairment or loss of use of the child’s limbs may also be experienced after the injuries have healed.
If an infant, toddler or child suffers a brain injury there may be complications later in the child’s life also. It is very difficult to assess the possible loss of brain function in a child after a car accident. This is due to the part of the brain that has been injured may not develop and be used for several years after the accident. For example if the part of the brain that controls reading and writing is injured as a toddler it may not become evident until the child reaches school age and delayed signs of development are displayed. A qualified child accident lawyer can anticipate these complications and ensure that you are awarded full compensation, current and future medical benefits based on your child’s injuries.
