Negligence lawsuit filed in Maryland after boxer was left in coma

It is understood that Maryland boxing contenders understand that their jobs can be dangerous and painful. Stepping into the ring to battle another human being until the last one standing wins, or a panel of judges declares a winner, can take a lot of dedication and physical training. Attending physicians are require to sit ringside and tend to the boxers during breaks in the rounds, checking for any signs that may indicate the athlete cannot safely continue the match, including the harder to diagnose concussions. Should a ringside physician fail to stop a fight when a brain injury is possible, negligence could be assumed.

Maryland brain injury: Difficult to diagnose

For many Maryland residents with symptoms that include forgetfulness, headaches and sensitivity to light and sound, finding the culprit to these sometimes debilitating annoyances can be time-consuming and costly. Most cases stem from some sort of brain injury, whether due to an accident or at the hands of another. Roughly two million Americans suffer from some form of traumatic brain injury each year. The lasting disabilities and general medical aftereffects can be devastating.

New study regarding long-term effects of traumatic brain injury

Researchers from an out-of-state children's hospital recently found that when a child suffers from a TBI, that child may potentially experience repercussions of that injury for many years. Specifically, the study found that when a child experiences a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury, he or she is two times more likely to develop attention problems years down the road. Maryland residents may be surprised to learn that, according to the study, there are over 630,000 teens and children in the U.S. that go to the emergency room each year to be treated for TBIs.

The complications of a brain injury are sometimes referred to as hidden disabilities, as those impacted may not feel any direct effects as they recover. These types of injuries may take months or even years before the actual symptoms appear. Some victims may appear to have made full recoveries while others may still experience chronic problems with their concentration and memory. As the prognosis for a traumatic brain injury is often uncertain, anyone suffering a TBI in Maryland is best advised to seek proper medical attention as quickly as possible.
