As a parent or caregiver, it can be very frightening to witness your child suffer with the symptoms of a concussion after a Texas accident. A head injury in a child can have troubling effects that last for quite some time. If an accident caused by someone else's negligence led to your child's injury, you may be able to recover damages through a Texas personal injury claim.
Tips to Help Your Child Recover From a Head Injury in Texas
While your child is exhibiting the warning signs of a head injury, they shouldn't:
- attend school;
- take any exams such as SATs;
- engage in physical activity;
- engage in any activity with wheels (biking, skateboarding, rollerblading, or riding a scooter);
- operate heavy machinery;
- drive; or
- return to work.
While your son or daughter recovers, you should continually be on the lookout for any persisting child head injury warning signs, such as sleepiness, headaches and sensitivity to light. Any changes in your child should promptly be reported to his or her pediatrician.
Since a head injury in a child can be very costly, you may benefit by having a Texas child injury lawyer review your case and help you take steps to hold all negligent parties accountable.
