Personal Injury Firm
On January 15th, Atlanta Hawks player Chandler Parson was in a debilitating car accident that may end his career.
According to Parson’s attorney, the accident involved 3 vehicles and left Parson with severe injuries and a concussion. His injuries included a torn labrum, whiplash, disc herniation and a brain injury. The Center for Disease Control characterizes brain injuries as, “a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury.”
Close family members, as well as the Atlanta Hawks, are concerned that Parson’s brain injury may negatively affect his career, as symptoms of a brain injury include disorientation, blurred vision, nausea and dizziness, among other maladies.
Parson’s attorney released the following statement: “The at-fault driver created utter chaos on the roadway, needlessly endangering the lives of countless motorists; he now stands charged with DUI, admitted drinking, had alcohol in the car with him, passed out after causing a three-car crash at 2:00PM on a Wednesday in a busy intersection, seriously injuring and potentially ending Mr. Parsons’ career as a professional athlete.” Parson’s attorney continues by saying, “Chandler is having a difficult time accepting the consequences of the defendant’s reckless conduct on the roadway. He is now working with a team of doctors to regain his health, and at this time, his ability to return to play is unclear. Our focus right now is on helping him make a full recovery, while we also work to hold any and all responsible parties fully accountable.”
Like with most personal injury cases, it is the burden of the plaintiff or victim to prove that the other party’s negligent actions were responsible for the accident and any injuries suffered. If it can be successfully proven that the accident was caused by another’s negligence, that individual may be responsible for the victim’s medical bills, as well as a loss of earning potential, loss of enjoyment of life, and possibly more.
