Study finds persisting lapses in attention for mild brain injuries in kids

A new study has provided further research and analysis into the effects of mild brain injuries on children’s attention.  This is further important information for personal injury lawyers and their clients who have suffered unfortunate brain injuries in car accidents or by other means.

WebMD notes that: “Parents, teachers and doctors [ed., and lawyers] should be aware that attention impairment after traumatic brain injury can manifest as very short lapses in focus, causing children to be slower,” said study researcher Marsh Konigs, …

“The study of 6- to 13-year-olds found these attention lapses led to lower behavior and intelligence ratings by their parents and teachers.”

As is a continuing challenge for injury lawyer in mild brain injury cases, even though the scans themselves were unable to show the damage, the loss of focus was apparent.
