    Compensation for school football concussion


    Football is an active game that is played at many schools. The rules are learned at a young age and while few players will ever go on to play football for a living, many kids do enjoy it and keep fit by playing it.

    Fortunately school football concussion is quite rare given the number of children who get involved in this game on a regular basis. However when it does occur it can require medical treatment.

    You never know with a head injury whether someone has concussion or not – or even a more serious head injury that does require urgent treatment. As such it is a good idea to get a proper diagnosis when your child suffers this injury.

    How severe can school football concussion be?

    Concussion can result in symptoms that can be quite unpleasant. A headache is quite common, as is a temporary loss of memory.

    Someone might also seem confused after suffering concussion, which is why most people will seek medical attention to make sure it is ‘only’ concussion and not something more serious.

    Children do bounce back after suffering school football concussion (and indeed concussion suffered in any other circumstance). However many parents may wonder how their child suffered the concussion in the first place.

    Schools do have a duty of care towards their pupils. They must perform risk assessments and take every conceivable step to ensure they are protected against potential incidents, even when playing sports.

    A small proportion of players

    Only a few young players will ever suffer concussion while playing football at school. However with that said, those that do will likely feel unwell for a time, and will need to stop playing football until they are recovered.

    In some cases it may put children off playing again. Fortunately injuries are rarely serious, and most children do recover in time.
