Legal Representation After a Sports Brain Injury

While football has gained a lot of attention in recent years due to the head injury issue, it is not the only sport or recreational activity in which children and adults can suffer traumatic damage. Unfortunately, in many cases, it is not uncommon for these injuries to occur because of negligence on the part of those responsible for the players’ safety, such as teachers, coaches, colleges, and professional sports organizations.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury while participating in a sport or other recreational activity, it is important that you understand that even supposedly minor head trauma can have serious, long-term effects. In the event that your sports-related injury is the result of negligence, you may be entitled to take legal action against the at-fault party.

Contact Grant Law Office to discuss your circumstances and legal options for recovering fair and just compensation for your losses. Submit an online contact form or call (404) 995-3955 to schedule a free and comprehensive case evaluation.

Which Sports Contribute to the Highest Number of Brain Injuries?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the highest number of traumatic brain injuries occurs in the following sports every year:

  • Cycling
  • Football
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Water Sports
  • Powered Recreational Vehicles
  • Soccer
  • Skateboards/Scooters

When a child or adult suffers a TBI through no fault of their own when participating in a sport, taking legal action may not only provide answers, but also much-needed financial assistance to cope with the lifelong disabilities and losses. Even a mild TBI, such as a concussion, can leave victims with permanent cognitive, emotional, and physical disabilities that may drastically impact the quality of their lives. Get in touch with an attorney to learn more legal action may help you reach the best possible outcome for your situation.

Causes of Preventable Sports-Related Injuries

Many sports can be rough or violent even when players follow the rules of the game; however, there are still plenty of precautions that people must take to prevent serious injuries, whether at the professional sports level or in children’s leagues. Unfortunately, so many preventable sports-related head injuries occur as a result of the following:

  • Abusive or untrained coaches
  • Inadequate or faulty protective gear
  • Disregarding warning signs or symptoms
  • Failing to have qualified medical professional on hand
  • Keeping a player in the game despite a blow to the head

If negligence or poor decisions caused or exacerbated a sports-related injury, contact an Atlanta TBI attorney as soon as possible to determine whether you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
