The brain is, in many ways, a mysterious structure. Because of its importance in the body, an injury to the brain can have severe, often unpredictable, consequences. Even what initially appears to be a relatively minor child injury could ultimately have severe, long-term implications. Victims in New York and their families are often left wondering how such an injury will manifest and the type of care that will be needed to treat it.

There are a variety of different factors that can impact how much care an injury will need. These factors include the severity of the impact as well as the area of the brain that was injured. Because brain injuries can be unpredictable, a victim of a brain injury could experience a variety of different symptoms.

These symptoms include seizures, trouble managing emotions, memory issues, difficulty reading and writing, depression and even paralysis. In many cases, it is difficult to determine whether a child will ever fully recover. While there are a variety of different types of treatments that have been effective for victims of a traumatic injury, it may be difficult for families to cope with the expenses associated with them.

Often, a child injury to the brain is the result of another’s negligence. This leaves families suffering from the financial consequences of such an injury through no fault of their — or their child’s — own. Fortunately, the team at Ronald W. Ramirez Attorney at Law has extensive experience with this type of case. With our knowledge, we are able to help New York families seek a fair settlement from the parties determined to be responsible for the injury.
