Any time there is a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, including a penetrating trauma, a traumatic brain injury can occur. These injuries often occur from falls, violent assaults, sports accidents, workplace incidents, vehicle accidents, as well as other traumatic incidents.
Each year, more than 2.8 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury, with several hundred thousand of those being hospitalized.
Traumatic brain injuries can significantly impact people, altering their moods, cognition, memory, and personality. Sometimes, people lose motor function.
Depending on the severity of the injury and how quickly effective treatment was rendered, these injuries can result in short or long-term disability.
Sometimes, complete lifestyle changes are necessary.
Will your insurance cover all the medical expenses?
How about lost income?
According to the Brain Injury Research Institute, an estimated 1.6 – 3.8 million sports and recreation-related concussions occur each year. Out of that, millions of children suffer concussions while playing sports.
Football accounts for more than 60 percent of concussions in children.
This can be a problem, especially if children are allowed to continue to play after they suffer a blow to the head. Anytime a concussion is suspected, the child should be given medical treatment and not allowed to play. If they return to the game and suffer another blow to the head, the resulting brain injury could be severe.
Brain injuries cause more deaths than any other sports injury. In football, they account for an estimated 65 to 95 percent of fatalities. Any coach who allows a child to continue to play a sport after a head injury should be held liable for any further injury or death resulting. Remember, effects of concussions are cumulative if an athlete returns to play before they are completely healed.
