Brandi Chastain’s Brave Decision to Donate her Brain to Concussion & C.T.E. Research

I applaud Brandi Chastain’s decision to donate her brain to C.T.E. research at Boston University.

While brain injury, including C.T.E., in male football and hockey players is being documented, we are just beginning to see the evidence of brain trauma in female athletes.  Yet we know it must exist, particularly in women’s soccer.  The litigation our firm is involved with, representing plaintiffs in both NFL and NHL concussion litigation, is helping to shed light on the devastating and deadly effects of C.T.E.   Brandi, by her courageous decision, will change soccer for better, as she hopes to do, according to her statement issued earlier this week. But it’s only the beginning.
