NFL news conference reaffirms serious injury fears

A previous blog post discussed the risk of degenerative brain disease resulting from football injuries. In this post, it was pointed out how concussions and even repeated minor hits to the head could spell out future health problems related to head trauma for those who played football. These complications may include memory problems, depression, aggressive behavior, early-onset dementia and death. Perhaps most frighteningly, it is not just professional NFL players who face the disturbingly common risk of degenerative brain disease. Those who played high school and college football in New York and elsewhere may receive enough injuries to result in long-term complications.

Are trampoline parks completely safe?

The idea is a brilliant one, in addition to being fun: trampoline parks are places that contain trampolines of various sizes, in addition to other types of gym-like equipment, for people of all ages to play in. You and other Schenectady residents may have enjoyed an afternoon at one of these establishments for a date, a child’s birthday party or just a fun day out. What you may not realize is that although the management at trampoline parks take measures to keep patrons safe, serious injuries still occur at these places.

At Bendall & Mednick, we understand how important it is for Schenectady residents to be accurately diagnosed with a brain injury, as well as to have the diagnosis in a timely manner. A missed or delayed diagnosis can be debilitating or even deadly when it comes to concussions.

Progressive brain disease may affect football players

Football has long been an American pastime, but recent research has uncovered evidence that throwing around the old pigskin may be more than just a game.

Our attorneys at Bendall & Mednick are familiar with the long-term complications someone can get from serious brain injuries like concussions.

What are the effects of traumatic brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries can have a range of devastating effects that impact both you and your family, whether resulting from motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls or other causes of physical trauma. These effects can require ongoing medical treatment while also decreasing your overall quality of life.

Traumatic brain injuries: how do I know if my child has one?

Sports are a big part of growing up for many children, and they have their benefits. Playing sports teaches kids some valuable lessons. They learn about teamwork and sportsmanship. They learn about hard work and dedication. They learn about competition and failure. They learn about rules and regulation.
