Tampa Concussion Injury Claims Lawyer
Athletes in contact sports are often at risk for an injury. When a football player fractures a bone or a hockey player tears a knee ligament, they are pulled from the game and begin getting the medical treatment needed. Unfortunately, when the injury is in the brain, players have been sent back out to keep playing, even though they should have received medical care. Concussions or brain injuries from contact sports have caused long-term injuries for many professional and college athletes, leading to millions of dollars in lawsuits.
Concussions are a mild form of traumatic brain injury, but the term “mild” can be misleading. Although many people can sustain a concussion and not have any long-term effects, that is not always the case. In contact sports like hockey and football, players may sustain multiple concussions during the years of playing the sport. This can increase the risk for permanent brain injuries, especially when the player does not receive treatment at the time of the concussion.
