Negligence is a Common Cause of Brain Injury

Cueria Law Firm LLC brain injury lawyer

The thrill and excitement of playing football is one of the main reasons this sport is so popular. For many athletes, both amateur and professional, going out on the field and executing is important. There are a number of injuries a player can have over the years. Having a brain injury in New Orleans, like a concussion, is quite common for athletes who play this contact sport.

Even after a player ends their football career, they may still feel the effects from the brain injuries they have sustained. Negligence is often to blame for brain injuries in this sport. Here are some of the most common forms of neglect that lead to the development or worsening of a football brain injury in New Orleans.

Lack of Proper Safety Equipment

The lack of safety equipment available to football players is one of the most common forms of neglect that can lead to a brain injury. If the correct helmets and neck supports are not used, it is only a matter of time before an athlete is injured. There have been many advancements in the world of football helmet technology, but oftentimes the new helmets are too expensive for some football programs to afford.

A football program’s lack of resources can lead to players getting injured and having damage done to their brain. When players experience a TBI due to less than stellar equipment, a brain injury attorney may be able to get them compensation.

No Medical Assessments Done When Injuries Occur

Taking a blow to the head is a common occurrence for a football player. Most of the brain injury attorney firms out there deal with a number of cases involving football players and TBIs. The brain injury a football player has will only get worse due to not receiving a proper medical assessment following an on the field injury.

If the medical staff for a football team does not know how to properly check players out after a blow to the head, they may be putting players in harm’s way. Any time a player is hit in the head, they should be taken out of the game until it is determined they have not sustained a concussion.

Allowing Players to Stay in the Game After a TBI

When football players are allowed to continue playing after sustaining a TBI, a lot of additional damage can be done. Being repeatedly hit in the head with force will usually lead to brain damage and, in some cases, death. Coaches should never let a player who has experienced a concussion back in the game just because they want to be there for the team. Putting players in this type of dangerous situation will only lead to long-term health problems.

A traumatic brain injury should be taken very seriously. For players who have been injured as a result of negligence, contacting us to schedule a consultation is important. Our brain injury lawyer firm will be able to let you know what your rights are and whether or not you need to pursue your case.
