ACC only receives claims for 6,250 of those sports related concussion injuries suggesting that 1,100 currently go untreated.
46% – (3,381 injuries per year) are classified as mild with a high risk of complications. Injuries are most frequently sustained during rugby, cycling and equestrian activities. 11% of sports related concussion claimants of ACC had multiple concussions within a 2 year period.
