Call Our Los Angeles Brain Injury Lawyers
Many aspects of American culture are centered on sports. Football and hockey
fans are used to witnessing players suffering crushing blows to the head.
In almost any sport, a player is at risk for suffering a serious head
injury, whether from intentional collision or not. For years, even doctors
did not acknowledge the harm that can result from sports-related concussions.
However, the good news is that medical professionals are starting to take
these injuries and their health consequences seriously.
If you have suffered a sports concussion and aren’t sure what step
to take next,
call on our brain injury attorneys in Los Angeles at (310) 896-4345.
Understanding the Impact of Concussions
News commentators often mention that football players and other athletes
"are recovering" or "have recovered" following a head
injury that resulted in a concussion. However, repeated concussions—or
even just one concussion—can have devastating effects despite the
improvement of initial symptoms. Full recovery may never occur.
As seen in recent news stories, athletes often do not feel the full impact
of concussions until years later when their cognitive and physical capabilities
markedly deteriorate and become disabling. Common complaints and symptoms
of athletes who have suffered concussions include inability to focus or
concentrate, irritability, cognitive decline, and depression. It has recently
been medically established that multiple concussions can even hasten dementia
in injury victims later in life.
As more and more information about sports-related brain injuries come to
light, the NFL and school sports authorities have taken notice. The NFL
has adopted new standards regarding how players are allowed to tackle,
Anyone who suspects that they have sustained a concussion
should never ignore the symptoms or problems that follow, but rather consult with a qualified doctor who is knowledgeable
about concussions. If you believe that you sustained a concussion because
of someone's negligence or wrongdoing, contact Biren Law Group in
