• The link between sports-related concussions (SRCs), chronic encephalopathy (CTE) and mental injury is still unsettled. However, the concern about injury to participants arising from a SRC while participating in a sponsored athletic program is very real to colleges and universities. In response, Gallagher hosted a think tank with risk management professionals from colleges and universities to explore the risk of SRCs for both athletes and their institutions. Gallagher's white paper on this important issue, "State of Play: Managing Brain Injury Risk in College Sports," explores evolving medical science related to SRCs and CTE, the current litigation landscape, insurance coverage concerns, and risk management strategies to respond to this emerging exposure.

  • A large-scale new study found that concussions in adolescents can increase the risk of later developing multiple sclerosis.

  • An estimated 60 percent of people in the prison system have suffered some type of traumatic brain injury or TBI. Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana executive director Dr. Lance Trexler says failure to address this issue has far reaching societal impacts.

  • The subject of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is now one of the hottest topics in global sporting competition, and one of sport’s biggest taboos. Taboo because the ramifications of tackling this issue could potentially have a defining, transformative impact on sporting disciplines we all know and love. Quite literally human lives and billions upon billions of pounds are potentially at stake over this issue.
