As every adult knows, prevention is key for child abuse. Therefore, we all should be watchful of its signs and symptoms. It is also good to be especially mindful of children with disabilities as they are more than twice as likely to be victims of child mistreatment, or abuse, than children with no disabilities. Bone injuries tend to be one way hospitals and health care providers are watchful of suspected child abuse since health experts have reported that more than 1/3 of all abused children will suffer some type of bone fracture. If a child, for example, has multiple fractures involving different bone groups, or multiple fractures in different stages of healing, then child abuse should be strongly suspected in the absence of some type of specific disease of the bones. Our San Diego child injury lawyer delves deeper into this in this video.
