Attorney: Chandler Parsons’ career in jeopardy after ‘severe and permanent injuries’ from car accident

nba1Atlanta Hawks forward Chandler Parsons suffered “multiple severe injuries” that are potentially career-ending in an automobile accident Wednesday afternoon caused by a man arrested for drinking and driving, according to a law firm representing Parsons. In a statement from Morgan & Morgan, the firm representing Parsons, the veteran forward suffered “suffered multiple severe and permanent injuries including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and a torn labrum.”

The following was released by Morgan & Morgan:

The at-fault driver created utter chaos on the roadway, needlessly endangering the lives of countless motorists; he now stands charged with DUI, admitted drinking, had alcohol in the car with him, passed out after causing a three-car crash at 2:00PM on a Wednesday in a busy intersection, seriously injuring and potentially ending Mr. Parsons’ career as a professional athlete.

“Chandler was in peak physical condition at the time of the wreck. He is now working with a team of doctors to regain his health, and at this time, his ability to return to play is unclear. Our focus right now is on helping him make a full recovery, while we also work to hold any and all responsible parties fully accountable.
