The Hidden Dangers of Concussions

Published on Mar 10, 2017 at 9:35 pm in Personal Injury.

We’re often told that injuries “come with the territory” of participating in team sports. Players commonly walk away from games with scrapes, cuts, bruises, broken bones, sprains, and even short-lived head injuries like concussions. Concussions, technically speaking, are usually caused by minor head trauma that can seem rather undramatic at the time. Most concussion victims recover within minutes or even right away.

As a result, most coaches, nurses, doctors, and other sport medicine professionals in Atlanta, Georgia and elsewhere have treated concussions like they had no lasting effects. New research suggests differently, however. It’s reported that as many as 3.8 million concussions happen every year between all levels of sport. In some of these cases, doctors are finding out that the accumulation of concussions—even when they’re undramatic—can lead to traumatic brain injury and even brain disease.

Work Injury Claims Denied

If you have been involved in a work-related accident and suffered an injury, you deserve to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

Often an employee will become injured on-the-job and will try to obtain benefits without consulting a skilled Work Injury Lawyer, when this occurs more often than not, their claims will be denied.

Here are the top reasons for a Workers’ Compensation Claim to be denied:

Late Notice of Injury
It is a requirement to provide your employer with a notice promptly of the injuries that you have received from a work-related accident. What is “timely” can vary, which is why it is important to have an attorney on your side who knows all the important deadlines. If the injury is not reported when it needs to be, your claim will more than likely be denied.
