Sports-Related Brain Injuries
Athletes are subject to severe brain injuries and concussions during sports and physical activities, especially high-impact activities.
Many coaches and players are tempted to dismiss such injuries as “getting your bell rung,” and often think they are insignificant. The North Carolina traumatic brain injury attorneys at HensonFuerst know that concussions are a form of brain injury and need to be treated as such.
Take Immediate Action
Young children should be pulled from a game immediately after any impact to the head. Ask the coach or certified athletic trainer how long your child should sit on the sidelines to ensure that the brain has time to heal. Current recommendations suggest that children under age 18 should not return to sports for at least three months following the diagnosis of a concussion.
