4/21/2012While your family’s main focus should be on helping your loved one recover and adjust to life after a serious accident resulting in brain injury it’s not uncommon for young children to be confused or upset by the situation.
It’s never easy for a child to see their parent injured or impaired and a serious brain injury can change the lives of everyone in your family in an instant. Children are often unaware of the seriousness of a brain injury and can become easily upset by the recent events in your household.
Part of recovering from a brain injury includes forming new routines and making lifestyle changes to support any limitations the victim now suffers. Some children may adjust to this change easily, but others may not take to their parent’s new life challenges as well.
Try to reinforce to your children that their parent is still the same person, although they may not act the same as they did prior to the accident. Some therapists involved in your loved one’s recovery may have special programs to help young children understand brain injuries and involve them in the treatment process.
The impact of a brain injury reaches beyond the victim and can create frustration and burdens on the entire family. By seeking an Atlanta accident claim settlement you can pursue compensation for the damages your family incurs both currently and in the future. Knowing you have financial security to deal with the unknown effects of a brain injury long-term can help provide some comfort to your family.
