Being involved in an auto accident is a frightening experience and can be even more traumatic if your child is injured. The experienced auto accident lawyers at Thomas, Conrad & Conrad Law Offices can help your child receive just compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages.
Motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 121,350 children ages 12 and younger were injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2014, and 663 children died in motor vehicle crashes in 2015.
Types Of Injuries Sustained By Children In Auto Accidents
Some of the most common injuries among children involved in car crashes are:
- Head injuries such as concussions, contusions, lacerations and skull fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Rib fractures and lung injuries
- Abdominal injuries
- Fractures of the arms, legs, feet and pelvis
Some of these injuries can have lifelong consequences for children. Brain damage that is sustained in early childhood may not be apparent until children reach school-age or even high school. Like other types of trauma, auto accidents can cause long-term mental and emotional distress and may lead to nightmares, anxiety, fearfulness, anger and many other problems that can affect your child’s quality of life.
