    Quad bike accident inspires survivor to launch road safety DVD

    Quad bike accident inspires survivor to launch road safety DVD

    A teenager from County Tyrone who was left with a brain injury after a quad bike accident has released a road safety DVD. Teenager Rebekah Glass suffered a stroke and had part of her brain removed after the quad bike accident three years ago in Trillick.

    Working with the Child Brain Injury Trust and the police, the 18-year-old has released the road safety DVD, commenting, “If I can save someone’s life, it would mean everything to me.”

    Gayle Baird of the Child Brain Injury Trust commented, “It’s all very well us saying that these are the kind of things that can happen, but to then show a DVD from someone’s personal experience of what has happened is going to really drive it home to pupils.”

    The Child Brain Injury Trust works with families impacted by childhood-acquired brain injuries in Northern Ireland. Road traffic accidents are the main cause of this type of injury. If your son or daughter has suffered a brain injury in a road traffic accident, claiming compensation may be possible if somebody else is to blame for the accident.

    What is childhood-acquired brain injury?

    Childhood-acquired brain injury (ABI) applies to any brain injury which takes place after birth and during childhood. The most common cause of this type of injury is a road traffic accident, but non-traumatic brain injury can also occur, usually caused by illness.

    If your child has suffered a brain injury in a road accident, it can affect their cognitive ability, moods and personality, and they may need extra care and support for the rest of their life. You may be able to make a claim for compensation if somebody else was at fault for the accident.
