Many Myths Exist About Brain Injuries and Concussions

There is no shortage of information about concussions out there, but not all are accurate. Sports-related brain injuries are prevalent, and it is crucial for coaches, parents and others involved in sports in Ontario to separate myths from facts. Negligence by administrators could have legal consequences.

The financial and emotional toll of brain injuries can be severe

Two years ago, an 18-year-old woman in Ontario was hospitalized in critical condition. She was a rear seat passenger in a car that was involved in a crash that left her barely alive. Her aorta and bladder were torn, her lungs collapsed, and she had a fractured pelvis. Doctors had little hope because she suffered massive brain injuries that left her with bleeding on the brain, and she spent the following six weeks in a coma.

Now is the time to prevent falls that could cause brain injuries

Heading into winter, people across Canada, including Ontario, will be at a higher risk of slips or trips that lead to falls. Safety authorities say falls cause most brain injuries, and with the slippery conditions caused by ice and snow, they can happen at home, workplaces, shopping malls, restaurants, grocery stores and at entertainment events. Slippery surfaces could include sidewalks, stairways and interior walkways, as well as potential slip-and-trip hazards inside stores.
