Concussions and Rodeos

Being a brain injury lawyer in New York, I can't tell you much about rodeos or riding a bull, but hey, I Bull do know how to ride the subway!  Anyway, did you know that the most common injury in the rodeo is a concussion?  That's because the head is unprotected and can be injured when struck by the bull, when striking the ground or just merely by a violent jerk while riding the bull. 

The Justin Sports Medicine Program is the organization that monitors cowboys at rodeos.  They report that concussions account for 48.98 percent of all injuries sustained.  Click here to read the full story on concussions, head injury and bull fighting.
