Of these, head trauma is the most severe, and any head injury should be properly examined by a medical professional immediately. A doctor will likely recommend a diagnostic imaging test, such as an MRT or CT scan. There is a large concern with head injuries that pressure builds inside the skull, which can be fatal. At times, lessening pressure may require surgery.
Has your child been injured by the negligence of another?
Children are considered the prized possession of their parents. Children require much care and attention, from a very young age, and when someone is entrusted with the care and supervision of a child, they must dedicate their time to ensuring the safety of each child. Many parents entrust there young children to different people throughout the day, most notably, daycare facilities and centres, schools, after-school-programs, child summer camps, and even recreational community centres. Unfortunately, there are times when a child may be serious injured as a result of not receiving the proper care and supervision. Most often times, children are injured in a group setting, such as school trips, school sports activities, swimming pools, playgrounds, daycare centres, as well as other areas where multiple children are supervised by a limited number of adults. Most often, along with the pain and suffering as well as the potential impact on a child’s future, parents and caregivers suffer a loss of care, guidance and companionship, as well as actual out-of-pocket losses when caring for a child that has suffered a serious injury as a result of another’s negligence.
