Boxer suffers fatal traumatic brain injury

boxing glovesThe fragility of the head and the brain was brought into sharp focus on Friday 19th July when repeated blows to the head caused a traumatic brain injury, sadly resulting in the death of a previously undefeated boxer.

Russian boxer, Maxim Dadashev, was undefeated in 13 bouts and was fighting against another undefeated fighter when his trainer asked for the fight to be stopped. After 11 rounds, Dadashev was unable to speak but when asked by his trainer if he would throw in the towel, he shook his head multiple times.

Unfortunately, the fighter, who was unable to leave the ring without help, had sustained a severe brain injury, which sadly resulted in his death. The sportsman leaves behind a wife and a 2 year old son.

This is an extreme instance of how someone may sustain an acquired brain injury, but with one person being admitted to hospital with a head injury every 3 minutes in the UK, there are clearly many different ways in which someone can be injured. In some cases it may not be the fault of the victim and employing specialist brain injury solicitors to help make a compensation claim can help obtain a financial package that will help with adapting a home to the specific needs a head injury can require, or indeed, pay for a carer or care home.
