Winter sports participation reaches its peak in January, which is also recognized as National Winter Sports TBI Awareness Month. Whether you head into colder climates to enjoy outdoor skiing or snowboarding, or you head indoors for ice skating and hockey, winter sports offer great fun and exercise in the next coming months.
Experienced Texas brain injury lawyers know that the chances of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) increase when winter sports participants don’t have the proper safety equipment or aren’t given the safety information they need. The consequences of a traumatic brain injury can be severe. Even a mild concussion caused by a light blow to the head can cause problems with mood, concentration, thought, and memory. A severe concussion can cause permanent problems with movement and cognition – or even, in the worst cases, death.
