7-Year-Old Traumatic Brain Injury Victim Sees Dream Come True

The dreams a 7-year-old girl has are often very different from the ones
her parents will have for her. In the case of one little girl, she dreamed
of a little backyard playhouse all her own. Her family had even bigger
dreams for the young victim of a traumatic
brain injury: that she would one day see and walk again.

The girl was recently thrilled by her discovery in the backyard of a Minnie
Mouse-themed playhouse built just for her by volunteers with the Dream
Factory, a wish-granting foundation active in Missouri and elsewhere.

\”It is awesome!\” the girl shouted as she saw the bright pink
structure behind her Tennessee home.

The same could easily be said of her progress in the past year, following
her devastating injuries in a
car accident. Her mother said doctors told her after the crash that her little girl
would never walk again and never see again. But relentless effort by the
girl – she visits doctors and therapists nearly every day –
has paid off.

“…therapy has been one of the biggest blessings because it\’s
helped her come so far,\” her mother said.

The playhouse is one the youngster will undoubtedly treasure for years
to come, but building the structure and surprising the girl with it provided
rewards for the volunteers, too.

\”It\’s very rewarding and very humbling, you know, to be able to
help,” said a construction volunteer. “You can\’t ever
go wrong helping God\’s angels for sure, because that\’s what all
these babies are.\”

Many parents thrust into similar situations will pursue with a personal
injury attorney full compensation from the driver responsible for their
child\’s injuries, medical bills, rehabilitation and possible lifelong
medical consequences.

As many Joplin families know, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can happen in the blink of an eye in car accidents, falls, sports mishaps and other sudden, unexpected events. Fortunately, researchers continue to look for ways to help those with TBI recover

Truck Accidents

Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents

One of the greatest challenges someone can face after being hurt in a truck accident is proving that they are in no way liable for what happened. Overcoming this obstacle becomes easier once you get an understanding of some of the most common causes of 18-wheeler truck accidents. If you can identify one of those reasons in your own claim, the odds of you gaining fair and maximized compensation should

Wrongful Death

Young life cut short on Missouri jobsite

We read recently of a young man who was just 22 years old when his life came to an end without warning and without reason. He was at work as an apprentice ironworker — a new job he had only held for a few weeks — when he fell from a steel girder just nine inches wide. The fall of more than 30 feet killed him.
