Can I Sue for a Child Brain Injury?

If someone else caused your child’s brain injury, you can file a lawsuit on your child’s behalf to seek damages for losses such as the following: 

  • Medical bills
  • Lifetime care
  • Loss of potential future income
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering

Another party may be responsible for your child’s brain injury. Some examples of conduct that could lead to liability for a brain injury are negligent medical care, physical abuse, a sports injury, an automobile accident, or neglectful supervision that allowed an accident to occur. 

If your child was hurt at school, the school or district may be liable. This would be the case if, for example, those supervising your child were negligent or the environment wasn’t safe. Depending on the exact situation, various parties may be held responsible. Some examples of strong legal cases for traumatic brain injury in children include the following: 

  • Improper supervision from a coach
  • Poor or defective equipment from a manufacturer
  • Inadequate upkeep from a venue owner
  • No warning of known dangers from competition organizers 

An attorney from Cordisco & Saile LLC can help determine the strength of your case and walk you through the legal process. 

How Much Compensation Can Be Recovered for a Pediatric Brain Injury?

Compensation varies greatly depending on the state and your specific situation. Consider the following items in your claim to get the compensation you deserve:

  • Current medical expenses: This includes hospital stays, surgeries, medications, physical therapy, psychological treatment, and any other expense related to the management of pediatric severe traumatic brain injury.
  • Future medical expenses: A lifetime care expert can assist your lawyer in calculating the costs of lifetime care, encompassing all related ongoing treatments.
  • Loss of earning capacity: Depending on the severity of your child’s brain injury, their future ability to attend school, work, and more may be affected. Financial and medical experts can help a judge understand what limiting factors your child may face.
  • Emotional damages: Non-economic damages, such as emotional distress and pain and suffering, can severely affect your child and family, making you eligible for further compensation.
