If there is no evidence of a bump, bruise or laceration, brain injuries may go unnoticed. Fortunately, Ontario parents can prevent most head injuries by using proper car seats, seat belts and cycling helmets while many steps can be taken to make the home child-safe.

Brain Injury Canada says about one million Canadians live with some type of brain injury. The negligence of others caused many of those brain injuries.
