Victims of brain injuries deserve someone to fight for them

Back in Sept. 2011, the coaches of the Gaiters forced a young player to continue playing despite signs of a concussion. These were allegations made by the player who is now 27 years old. The consequences of those alleged orders included traumatic brain injuries that led to a lawsuit against a university in another province, and the ultimate settlement was reached on the day scheduled for the start of the trial. The following may inspire victims of brain injuries in Ontario to also pursue financial relief.
