Description

The serious nature of concussion injuries that are commonly suffered in amateur, collegiate and professional sports is beginning to become clear to the medical and legal community. A fine example of that problem is former Colorado Crush Arena Football Player Clay Rush, who suffered several devastating injuries in professional play, with, what turned out to be woefully insufficient medical oversight. Clay now suffers from a traumatic brain injury and is unemployed. He lives with severe headaches, hyper-sensitivity to his environment, visual issues, dizziness, balance issues, and signs of decreased cognitive abilities. If Clay's concussion had been managed properly by medical personnel, he would have healed with no lasting symptoms. He could have enjoyed life with his wife and two daughters. Instead, he lives his days in pain. His life has changed drastically, from football stud and family man to a man who struggles with a brain injury every day. We examine the work by his attorneys at the law firm of Fleishman and Shapiro to bring Clay Justice.
