Concussions and Your Rights

Concussions have gotten some attention over the past years mainly because of an outpouring of NFL players who have come forward with brain injuries.  These injuries have been proven to be caused by sustaining significant blows to the head forcing the NFL to reexamine their medical protocols and overall practicing methods.

Many people experience concussions without even knowing.  These cases can be in children who are involved in contact sports, those involved in a forceful blow due to a car accident, those who work on construction sites and are injured by heavy machinery, and many more.  If you endure a head injury leading to a concussion, it’s important to know your rights.

Concussion Preventative Measures 

While we’re not here to tell you to remove your child from the football team, you should be sure that safety is at the forefront.  This comes in the shape of proper headgear and other body padding, but you should also ensure that coaches are doing their part to teach safe ways to tackle, hit, and fall.  

Just like on the field, safety measures must be in place on the job.  Each individual should be aware of their surroundings, but on chaotic, loud, and busy job sites, this can be difficult.  This is why it’s imperative to keep safety procedures in check.  Safety shortcuts can lead to serious damages.

Our Northglenn personal injury attorneys see many clients suffering after a car accident, oftentimes the suffering is due to head injuries.  Brain injuries can cause mild to significant damage: memory loss, headaches, inability to focus, to name a few.  Always be alert and observant while driving, while you may not be able to stop an accident from occurring, you may be able to avoid the severity of its impact on you.  

 

What to do After a Head Injury

If you receive a blow to the head or face, you should seek medical attention as soon as you can.  Even if you don’t feel it’s necessary.  Head injuries can lead to serious conditions, so understanding what’s happened is necessary for a proper recovery.
