Chandler Parsons , an Atlanta Hawks player , suffered a car accident last week. His vehicle was hit by a drunk driver and he has injuries that could put an end to his career and, what is worse, they could leave sequels for a long time.
Last Wednesday, the Georgia franchise announced that the forward had been placed on the NBA concussion protocol after suffering a concussion and cervical problems, but did not reveal more details.
Parsons hired the prestigious Morgan & Morgan firm in recent days to take his case, and she made a statement last night ensuring that the player had "multiple, severe and permanent injuries , including a brain injury and a herniated disc.
The driver who caused the accident was arrested after also hitting two more cars. " Chandler has been seriously injured from the accident," the firm explained. "The driver admitted driving drunk, had alcohol in the car and could have ended Mr. Parsons' sports career."
Parsons, 31 and currently on the Hawks' roster, has fought several chronic knee injuries since 2016, when he signed a four-year, $ 94 million contract with the Memphis Grizzlies. Before that, his best season had been 2013-2014, when he averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4 assists with the Dallas Mavericks, a team he came to from the Houston Rockets.
"Chandler was in a good condition before he suffered the accident. He is now working with doctors and the chances of returning to basketball are not clear," the firm acknowledged.
