It is officially summer, which means more people in South Carolina and elsewhere, particularly children, are enjoying time outside. They are riding bikes, going boating and using recreation vehicles of all sorts — among other things. Fun as all that may be, sometimes accidents happen and brain injuries result. When such accidents are caused by another person’s negligence, victims may have legal recourse.
If your child suffers a brain injury this summer, it is okay to question how it happened and who may be responsible. Was your child struck by a distracted or impaired driver? Did someone else’s carelessness cause the injury? If so, you may be entitled to seek compensation by filing civil claims against the party believed responsible.
Brain injuries vary in severity. Obviously, the more severe the injury, the longer the recovery. Sadly, regardless of whether a brain injury is minor, moderate or severe, there are no guarantees of a full recovery. Caring for a child with a brain injury can be draining both mentally and financially. By seeking relief through legal means, you may be able to get the funds necessary to provide your injured child with the care and support he or she needs now and in the future.
Brain injuries are no joke. Minor or severe, they can have long-lasting effects. According to the laws of South Carolina, when a person is injured due to another’s negligence, the victim may be entitled to compensation. An experienced attorney can assist you in holding the person responsible for your child’s injury accountable for the losses you and your child have sustained.
