Researchers at the University of Ohio in conjunction with hospitals in Columbus, Ohio have completed a study that followed the growth of children who suffered Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The results of the study determined that children would experience neuropsychological problems as they grow.

The study followed children who had suffered severe, moderate, and musculoskeletal injuries six months, one year, and between 3 and five years after the initial accident. All of the children suffered their injuries between the ages of six and 12. The children with severe TBI injuries showed more serious problems than moderate TBI victims in areas such as:

  • Memory
  • Behavior
  • Learning
  • Adaptation
  • Mental Processing

This study shows that traumatic brain injuries are even more serious when they occur early in life. A TBI can impact someone for the rest of his or her life. Some of the common ways traumatic brain injuries occur include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and pedestrian accidents.

If your child has suffered a TBI in Columbus, Ohio, you need to contact Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A. A TBI can result in a lifetime of medical costs, and you should be compensated for the injuries suffered.
