INJURYwise: Concussions and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)


INJURYwise is a monthly column that I write on personal injury matters.

This month I wrote about a very important topic in my profession. Concussions. A new movie coming out this December called Concussion is about the the discoveries of Dr. Omalu, a pathologist who, after performing an autopsy on NFL star Mike Webster, went on to study brain damage in football players who had suffered from repeated concussions. His work lead to the discovery of a new disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE.

Personal injury lawyers often see clients who have suffered concussions as a result of car accidents, cycling accidents, slip and falls, assaults and other events, and we see  firsthand how devastating the consequences of a concussion or repetitive concussions can be.

See my full INJURYwise article on concussions here.

If you have a topic you would like me to write about, I would love to hear from you.
