As I watched the Flyers win their final game against the Penguins earlier this week, the lawyer in me could not help but notice the number of concussions suffered by the players this season.
One of the common injuries sustained by athletes playing contact sports is a concussion. If the athlete is not carefully monitored or is let back into the game too fast, another hit can lead to a more serious concussion. It can lead to a mild traumatic brain injury.
We have represented many individuals who suffered mild traumatic brain injury from contact sports or from other accidents, and we found that these individuals are the most neglected individuals in the medical system and in the legal system.
Mild traumatic brain injury is not outwardly visible and often does not show up on a CT scan. Therefore, these cases present challenges for the injured individual and lawyers.
Lay witnesses, i.e. family members, co-workers and friends, have an important role in properly presenting the mild traumatic brain injury so the injured individual can get the full measure of damages in their case.
