Winter is a great time for outdoor fun if you don’t mind a bit of cold. But those who participate in winter sports like ice hockey, snowboarding, skiing, and ice skating must stay vigilant.
As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website explains: “there are risks to pushing the limits of speed, strength, and endurance. And athletes who push the limits sometimes don’t recognize their own limitations—especially when they’ve had a concussion… a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body.”
Prevent your children from suffering such injuries:
A head injury or traumatic brain injury can cause severe health problems, and can sometimes be permanently disabling or fatal. If your high school or college age child athlete recently got hurt, contact our D.C. brain injury attorneys for a free consultation about your options to obtain compensation for medical bills.
