Child Abuse

Toddler Injured by Falling Television in San Marcos

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on September 20, 2012 - Comments off

A toddler was injured by a falling television on September 19 around 1:45 p.m. in North San Diego County. According to a NorthComm dispatcher, this accident took place in 500 block of Autumn Drive in the San Marcos area.
Medics responding to this serious child injury accident immediately airlifted the toddler to a trauma center to receive immediate medical attention. Our personal injury law office prays that the young child recovers from his injuries soon.
In every child injury case, initial investigation should be focused to determine whether the injured child’s heedlessness contributed to the accident. A detailed investigation will help officers to determine the exact cause of the accident. No matter what caused this accident, the biggest concern for everyone should be getting the child medical treatment as soon as possible.

Child Abuse May Cause Poor Brain Development According to Study

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on February 17, 2012 - Comments off

The results of a new study by researchers from Boston’s Harvard Medical School have shown that those who were the victims of abuse during childhood have a higher likelihood that portions of the brain will be underdeveloped. The study, released by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that a variety of abusive tactics used against children led to underdevelopment of the brain due to severe stress.
The study used 193 adults who were between the ages of 18 and 25 years old and interviewed them concerning whether they had ever been subject to abuse. Researchers then scanned their brains via an MRI machine to see if they were altered in any way. Affected patients reported suffering from a variety of abusive techniques ranging from “parental verbal aggression” to “harsh corporal punishment.”

Specifically, the study found that childhood abuse victims had an average of 5.8% to 6.5% less volume in important parts of the hippocampus. The hippocampus plays an important role in memory and emotional processing, but results from the study did not reach a conclusion on what the effects were of having an underdeveloped one, although there may be a connection to the higher degree of mental illness found in those who have suffered child abuse. As the hippocampus is still developing during childhood, major stress at that time can lead to its improper formation.
