Brain Injuries: Children

Brain injury is the most common cause of disability and death in children in the U.S. Every year approximately 62,000 children suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) as a result of vehicle crashes, falls, sports injuries and other incidents.

CHILD BRAIN INJURY LAWYERS in TEXAS

Brain injuries are devastating, and when the victim is a child it can be catastrophic. Recent studies have shown that a child’s developing brain, unlike an adult’s, is more vulnerable to long-term effects of a brain injury. Unexpected problems caused by the injury may surface as the child matures and struggles to cope with more challenging schoolwork and social situations. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the complexities and repercussions of children’s traumatic brain injuries. They are caring individuals and emotionally invested in fighting to obtain financial compensation for the child and the child’s family to pay for medical expenses, special care and future needs.

WHY WE FIGHT SO HARD

When Luke Siegel was 9 in 2015, the golf cart he and a friend were riding in flipped over and Luke sustained life-threatening head and chest injuries. His family, friends and community rallied ‘round with prayers, fund-raising efforts and many kind acts of support. HMG stepped up to the plate, too, dedicating a legal team to hold the maker of the golf cart responsible for the vehicles’ dangerous design and lack of safety features that contributed to the accident.

HELPING OTHER KIDS

Luke’s family has reached out to help others through Team Luke Hope for Minds, a nonprofit organization providing guidance, advocacy and financial support for children with brain injuries and their families. Since 2012, Team Luke Foundation and Hope4Minds has served more than 100 families, provided more than $475,000 dollars in resources, and raised additional funds to continue providing services, equipment and financial support to the families it serves.
