Q: What compensation can my child get after suffering a serious head injury in a Maryland car accident?
Young children are especially susceptible to serious injuries following Maryland car accidents. While young bodies heal quickly, the fact that they are still developing can at times cause complications. You may not even know the extent of your child’s injuries until years later when developmental delays become obvious.
Head injuries are the most common for young children who have been involved in Maryland auto accidents. If your young child has suffered a head injury, or any other type of serious injury, he might need long-term care and rehabilitation services to deal with delays in development or other side effects. When that’s the case, it’s important that you talk to an experienced Maryland car accident attorney who can help you make sure that these medical expenses are covered.
In connection with your child’s healthcare provider, a lawyer can help you determine what care your child will likely need in the future and draft a demand for compensation that covers those future costs. For example, you might need help paying for treatment of any of the following issues that often accompany serious head trauma:
- Learning disabilities
- Social disorders
- Speech problems
- Issues with attention span or other memory problems
- Post-traumatic stress syndrome and other anxiety issues
Whenever a serious injury is involved, it’s always worthwhile to contact a skilled attorney who can help make sure that you get the full amount of compensation you deserve. To request a free consultation, call Nickelsporn and Lundin at 800-875-9700, or fill out our online form.
