Oakland to pay $4.5 million for protester's brain injury

The city of Oakland, California, will pay $4.5 million to a protester who was injured during a demonstration in 2011. The victim, an Iraq War veteran, suffered a skull fracture when he was shot with a beanbag round that was fired during the protest. That impact led to traumatic brain injuries that included hemorrhaging, and the 26-year-old man also suffered a broken vertebrae.

We have discussed here on multiple occasions the long-term effects of concussions and other brain injuries. A number of former professional football players have come forward recently with their own stories of memory loss, depression and host of neurological conditions.

Signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy found in 3 patients

We've discussed the increasing evidence that concussions and other head trauma suffered by athletes can have lifelong consequences on the brain. Although numerous former players have come forward to report neurological and memory problems, depression and other mood disorders they believe were caused by years of hard knocks to the head, the diagnosis of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) could only definitively be made after death. Some players like Junior Seau allowed their brains to be studied post-mortem to enable doctors to learn more about the disease that impacted their lives, as well as those of other athletes and military veterans.
