Symptoms of Sports-Related Brain Injuries
Depending on the severity of a brain injury, and precisely which part of the brain has been impacted, the symptoms, and the length and likelihood of recovery, vary greatly. Because the brain is so central to functioning throughout the body, symptoms of brain injury cover a broad spectrum, including:
- Headaches, nausea, vomiting
- Lightheadedness, confusion
- Loss of consciousness, seizures
- Balance or mobility issues
- Memory loss, confusion, inability to concentrate
- Speech and language difficulties
- Agitation, confusion, depression, mood disorders
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Sleep disorders
Sports-related brain injuries may also cause loss of muscular coordination or control of bladder or bowels. In worst-case scenarios, brain injury patients may remain in a vegetative state temporarily or permanently, or may die.
Whether you have suffered a concussion, bleeding in the brain, clotting within the brain’s blood vessels, swelling of brain tissue, or hypoxia (in which the brain is deprived of oxygen) — our team of competent, compassionate lawyers will provide you with efficient, effective service. Remember, Compass Law Group has a superb reputation and a track record of success.
Liability for Sports-Related Brain Injuries
While accidents are unexpected, there are occasions in which sports-related brain injuries might have been predicted due to poor supervision, lack of available safety equipment, or reckless behavior, such as swinging a lacrosse stick in the air near another player. In a great many instances, someone else is liable for your brain injury, for example:
- The school at which players were not properly supervised or outfitted
- The town that did not safely maintain playground equipment or pathways
- An athletic trainer or coach who did not assess a serious injury carefully enough
- A gym owner who failed to monitor machines or make necessary repairs
It is important to note that while death from sports injuries are rare, the leading cause of death from a sports-related injury is a brain injury. Whoever is responsible for your brain injury, our attorneys are committed to fighting aggressively to win the damages you and your family will need going forward.

Let’s Calculate the Damages You Need and Our Brain Injury Attorney Will Fight for Them
As experienced personal injury attorneys, we know how to figure out the amount of money you will need for the future, depending on your age, your past income level, the nature of your brain injury, and your prognosis. We will work tirelessly to bring you both economic and noneconomic compensation.
Economic damages will reimburse you for actual financial losses, including:
- Medical, rehabilitative, and pharmaceutical expenses
- Lost income (present and future)
- Long-term nursing care
- Alterations to make your home accessible
- Replacement costs for household tasks you can no longer do
- Funeral expenses (in cases of wrongful death)
Non-economic damages, on the other hand, will provide money to compensate you for intangible, but very real, costs, such as:
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
- Permanent disability
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If the defendant showed an egregious disregard for your life or well-being, our legal team may also be able to win you an award for punitive damages, i.e. damages to punish the defendant and discourage others from similar misconduct.
