Traumatic brain injuries are a common type of injury throughout Massachusetts, and all of the U.S. Generally caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, these injuries can be the result of any number of incidents. Car accidents, assaults, contact during sporting events and workplace accidents are all common causes of brain injuries. Regardless of the cause, the road to recovery can be a long and difficult one. At Donovan & O’Connor, LLP, we often consult with people who have sustained traumatic brain injuries, and are unsure how their lives will be impacted by their conditions. In this post, we will discuss the effects of such injuries, as well as life after they have occurred.
Many Massachusetts parents encourage their children to participate in group sports, which can be beneficial to their physical, social, emotional, and intellectual health. Unfortunately, sometimes participation in sports can leave children with brain injuries that can have long-term negative effects on their health and wellness.
