An excellent feature broadcast on BBC’s East Midlands Today in March 2015 examines the issue of concussion in Rugby. It looks at the scale of the problem, the dangers of continuing to play following a head injury and the research being carried out to allow better diagnosis of the condition.
We picked up this news item video from the Headway Brain Injury Charity Youtube channel – an excellent resource for anyone who has been affected with a serious head injury, whether as a victim or a family member/friend.
It shows a report on BBC Midlands Today about how concussion whilst playing rugby can lead to a serious injury. Thankfully the people in this video were adequately represented by a professional accident claims solicitor and received the support of various charitable organisations, friends, and family members.
It’s great to see aspects such as this highlighted in the news when they happen. If you see anything on your local news then please submit them to us so we can highlight them this year.
