There are no words to describe the grief, pain, and suffering experienced after losing a child, and knowing that your child's death resulted from the negligence or abuse of another can make that grief even more difficult to bear. Wrongful death is the term used to describe just that; it simply means that the child's death occurred unnaturally because of another party's failure to exercise due care. Although the Keane Law Firm handles many cases in which children suffer moderate or severe brain injuries, we also handle cases in which a brain injury turned fatal. Brain injuries are a serious matter: even minor concussions can have serious side effects and even long-term effects if not treated properly. Many caregivers are unaware of how quickly and easily a serious injury can occur in a child; since children's brains are more vulnerable and less developed than than of an adult, even a small amount of pressure or force can lead to permanent impairment from brain injury and, sometimes, death.
If you have lost a child due to traumatic brain injury, the Keane Law Firm expresses its deepest condolences to you and your family. Although nothing can compensate for the tragic loss of a child, certain measures can be taken to help families of fatal brain injury victims as they try to recover from the indescribable pain of loss. Chris Keane has the resources and experience to provide that help and will compassionately answer all your questions for free regarding your unique situation. As father himself and child wrongful death attorney, Chris Keane is passionate about helping surviving families after the loss of a child.
