In our last post, we wrote about former NFL player who committed suicide after suffering from a severe brain injury for years. Shane Dronett, like many professional football players, sustained repeated blows to the head as part of his job. Unfortunately, because he did not realize the hits caused a brain disease - chronic traumatic encephalopathy - so he did not apply for workers' compensation.
You may be aware of the attention concussions and brain injurys have received in the Ohio media and from the government. Medical research continuously shows that individuals who suffer repeated head injuries are at risk for severe brain injurys.
