As the school year gets underway, many of our children are participating in organized sports. Many of the sports our kids participate in are contact sports such as lacrosse, field hockey, soccer and football. These sports often put our children at risk for injuries, including serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury.
Below are some facts provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about traumatic brain injuries and sports and recreational activities:
As parents, we need to raise awareness about TBIs, including concussions. When our children play sports, make sure of the following:
Concussions and head injuries sustained while playing a sport or participating in a recreational activity cannot be taken lightly. Proper medical evaluation must be conducted before clearing the athlete to go back into the game or activity. Otherwise, a second blow to the head could lead to traumatic brain injury or permanent brain injury.
If you or someone you know has a traumatic brain injury as a result of playing contact sports or a recreational activity, you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation due to the negligence of others. For more information, feel free to contact our personal injury lawyers in PA and NJ who have helped victims who suffer traumatic brain injury.
