Children and teens can suffer greatly after a brain injury

Children and teens who suffer from traumatic brain injuries are likely to suffer from a variety of issues. The reason for the TBI isn't likely to affect the effects that a child or teen will experience. If you recall, just last week we discussed how teens who drink energy drinks are seemingly more likely to suffer from a TBI than teens who don't consume energy drinks. Those teens, as well as others who suffer from a TBI, can suffer from effects that range from behavioral issues to hearing issues.

Some children end up having ringing in the ears, hearing loss or balance issues because of the TBI. They might have trouble reading, difficulty processing information, trouble remembering things and problems with learning new things.

The social life of the child or teen might also be affected by the TBI. In some instances, children and teens might have difficulties communicating. They might have trouble doing the activities they once enjoyed doing with their friends. All of those TBI effects can make it hard for them to thrive and have an active social life.

Children and teens are very active. Children who are 9 years old and younger are most likely to suffer a TBI when they are bicycling or playing on the playground. Children who are 10 to 19 years old tend to suffer more TBIs when bicycling or playing sports like soccer, basketball or football.

Seeking compensation is something you might opt to explore if your child's TBI was caused because someone else was negligent or someone else was reckless. If monetary compensation is awarded, it might help to cover medical bills and other costs associated with the injury.
