Legal cases regarding inadequate management protocols for concussions can involve serious legal ramifications. In that regard, recently developed position statements by medical organizations can provide valuable information for the practicing clinician. In addition, nationwide legislation regarding concussive injuries has led to changes in the medical management of such injuries.
