60 Minutes Segment on the Dangers of High School Sports

I finally see that the national media is paying attention to what brain injury lawyers such as myself have known for years.  60 Minutes did a feature segment on the dangers of high school sports and coaches and trainers not knowing the susceptibility of the brain to further injury after suffering just one concussion.  I have posted on this blog before about the necessity of trainers knowing the symptoms of a concussion, and the proper treatment and protocols for what to do if a high school athlete suffers a head injury.  These dangers obviously extend into the college and professional ranks as well, but it is high school players that are especially vulnerable, given the restricted budget expenditures for medical and athletic training  that many schools face.  Parents are ultimately responsible for insuring that coaches, trainers, and other football support staff (in addition to any other sport that involves potential brain injury such as baseball, lacrosse, and soccer) know how to recognize a head injury, that schools have proper policies for prevention and treatment in place, and that student-athletes are protected.  For more information and a link to the full story, please click on the following:  http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5377319n
