After years of denial, the National Football League is finally taking steps to protect players from traumatic brain injury.
As a lawyer who handles traumatic brain injury cases I am often amazed at the lack of understanding of brain injury by some in the medical profession and other fields.
The NFL is helping craft legislation to reduce brain injury to youngsters. Senator Steven Lathrop of Nebraska introduced legislation in to help make coaches more aware of the problem.
The NFL implemented new standards to manage concussions and is attempting to reduce hits to the head. 135000 children are treated for concussions per year, many are unreported.
Concussions can lead to brain damage, depression and other very serious difficulties.
