Head Injury Caution Bill Passes

A local legislature has passed a bill aimed at protecting youth athletes and raising head injury awareness.  The legislation would require county-contracted youth sports agencies to develop a written policy to address incidents of a possible or actual concussion or other head injury among participants, provide parents with head injury information and prevent athletes from returning to play until they are medically cleared.  As an attorney representing brain injury victims and athletes who have suffered head injuries, I cannot emphasize strongly enough the need for similar legislation nationwide, at all levels of government, to protect our athletes.  For the full article, please click on the following link:  http://www.northshoreoflongisland.com/Articles-i-2009-12-17-82453.112114-sub_Head_injury_caution_bill_passes.html
