Contact Sports in Young People May Cause Brain Injury
I’m Ed Smith, a Ventura brain injury lawyer. It’s commonly known that motor vehicle and sports injuries to the head, along with other types of injuries, can result in a concussion. Depending on the severity of the concussion, it can have long-term consequences with regard to the individual’s health. However, a new study that was funded by the National Institutes of Health shows that a concussion can have long-term adverse effects even in children under the age of 12 who play sports.
