Lindenhurst Pedestrian Accident Update Concerning Girl’s Injuries

In the “Lindenhurst Pedestrian Accident Critically Injures 5-Year-Old Girl” post, an August 10, 2018 Lindenhurst pedestrian accident is summarized.  At that time, the girl that was hit by a minivan was reported to be in critical condition but the type of injuries she sustained were not disclosed.

The August 23, 2018 NBC Chicago segment (article with video) titled “Thousands Rally Around 5-Year-Old Girl Unconscious After Tragic Accident at Suburban Fest” provides an update concerning the girl, identified as Leah Dinchak.  [the article also provides the GoFundMe page]

An excerpt from the article:

A tragic accident in a northern Chicago suburb has left the family of a 5-year-old girl wondering if she’ll ever fully recover.

Leah Dinchak has been unconscious for nearly two weeks after she was hit by a minivan as her family crossed a street in Lindenhurst on their way to Lindenfest.

“Every minute feels like an hour,” said the young girl’s father Blake Dinchak.

Doctors said Leah suffered brain injuries in the accident.

As further discussed on the “Lake County Pedestrian Accidents” page, pedestrian accidents are notable in that there are a broad range of serious injuries that can occur when a person is hit by a vehicle.  Among the most problematical type of injury that can result is a brain injury.  While some traumatic brain injuries – such as minor concussions – may have temporary adverse health impacts there are many other types of brain injuries that can have significant – if not substantial – detrimental impacts on one’s health, functioning, and quality of life.

Brain injuries can be very complex in nature and can lead to a significant need for short-term and possibly long-term medical care.

Various aspects of traumatic brain injuries are further discussed on the “Concussions And Other Head Injuries” page.
