After an Accident in Indiana: Child TBI and Education

traumatic-brain-injury-car-accident-tbi-brainA severe type of head injury known as a traumatic brain injury, when sustained, can have a profound impact on your child’s ability to develop and learn normally. If the accident in Indiana that caused your child’s injury was caused by another person or party’s negligence, you can take legal action in the form of a personal injury lawsuit with the assistance of an Indianapolis brain injury lawyer.

If your child is involved in an accident in Indiana that results in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you should know that there are provisions in place so that schools can still meet his or her educational needs.

A national special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), defines TBI and makes available the provisions to have a child evaluated for TBI at no cost to the parents.

In addition, if the TBI results in physical, emotional or learning disabilities, the school’s special education services will evaluate your child and develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) for your child that addresses the educational needs and can be customized over time flexibly as further developments continue.

If your child has suffered a TBI as the result of an accident in Indiana, speak with an Indianapolis brain injury lawyer who can provide legal guidance for the steps towards compensation and making your family whole.
