A child that sustains a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to a doctor's negligent care during birth may be left with long-term health problems. These injuries can seriously affect how a child develops, often causing lifelong disabilities that are hard both on the child and the family. If these injuries are particularly severe, they may even affect a child's level of consciousness, which can substantially affect their physical and mental development. Sadly, many of these brain injuries are often preventable.
At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe in helping Connecticut families who have been affected by a medical professional's careless mistakes when delivering a baby. When an innocent baby has sustained a traumatic brain injury due to such carelessness, it should not be the family that has to shoulder the financial burden, but rather those responsible for the injury.
Consequences of Infant Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries at birth can have a drastic effect on a child's development and ability to interact normally with the world around them. These children may be left to recover from severe brain damage that can alter the way they live throughout the course of their life. The following issues may arise because of a traumatic brain injury:
- Loss of consciousness, which can dramatically alter a child's life expectancy and their ability to develop crucial life skills
- Loss of motor, language, or social developments
- Loss of proper nerve communication
- Ongoing pain or discomfort
- Sensory disabilities, including blindness or deafness
Other health problems may also be associated with a traumatic brain injury. Regardless of what consequences a child's traumatic brain injury causes, it often requires substantial medical care, which may be extremely expensive and difficult for a family to manage.
