We know you do not go about your day planning on a major injury happening, but the reality is that they do happen.

Vehicle accidents, falls, work injuries, and violence are just a few ways in which people sustain traumatic brain injuries. Often, the injury is not the victim’s fault, but rather, it is caused by someone else’s negligence.
The Mayo Clinic says that “traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body.” This can also include an object that penetrated the brain tissue (bullet or shattered piece of skull).
Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries range from mild to severe, depending on the level of TBI.
Severe TBIs include the same symptoms listed above, but harsher. They could also include:
Mild TBIs can become severe if the person suffers repeated blows to the head, which leads us to concussions.
Thousands of children play contact sports in the US, whether with their school or a recreation league. Though there has been more awareness of concussions lately, sometimes coaches make decisions to let kids continue to play after a hard hit or before they are fully healed.
There are between 1.7 and 3 million sports and recreation-related concussions a year. Up to 50 percent of concussions go unreported.
The effects of concussions are cumulative, meaning that if a kid is hit before their brain has healed from a concussion, the injury can become severe and have life-altering effects. It could even lead to death.
Anytime a coach violates concussion protocols, they are putting kids in danger and should be held accountable.
