Concussions are among the most common traumatic brain injuries suffered by athletes, and they can range from mild to severe.

Athletes who engage in collision sports demand special management and evaluation to ensure recovery and avoid re-injury. Although it can be tempting to jump right back into the game after the initial trauma and complications seem to subside, it is vital to take a guided approach to recovery and return to play.

Athletes understand the importance of coming together as a team, and that is the same philosophy Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. brings to the table. Our entire legal team is dedicated to understanding the physiology, medicine, and processes involved in recuperating from a concussion that can have long-reaching consequences if not treated properly. Our attorneys understand how to discover and prove the scope of an injury, because we are continually engaged with the emerging medical science. We also have the financial and networking capacity to secure the resources necessary to link the causation of the incident to our client’s brain injury, and to help clients determine appropriate treatment options.

Before an athlete can begin the journey back to the playing field, approval should be sought from a medical professional. This will generally require the individual to have completed both physical and cognitive rest directives. Physicians will also typically require a minimum of 24 hours without symptoms before approving an athlete’s return to play. Unfortunately, situations occur too often where an athlete is returned to the field before he or she has fully recovered, resulting in life-altering consequences because proper protocols were not followed. This is where our expert representation is particularly important.

The Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. team cares about those who suffer concussions and strives to help athletes get back to the sports that they love.
