Pittsburgh Brain Injury Lawyers Report Race after Battle with Brain Injury

On February 23, 2014, Jackie Lithgow was just another freshman at Bloomsburg University. His life took a tragic turn when he tried to break up a fight when four football players from Kutztown University crashed a party at the fraternity he was attempting to pledge. This past October, Lithgow reached a milestone and got out of his wheelchair and began walking for the first time in nearly a year at the Flyers Charities 5k race.

During the altercation with the football players, Lithgow sustained several injuries, including a major brain injury, from falling backward and cracking his skull on the curb after confronting the uninvited Kutztown students, one of whom is serving time for assault.

Physicians had to remove the top of Lithgow’s skull in order to create extra room for his swelling brain, then again had to open his skull when an infection developed. However, this past October was only good news as Lithgow was able to walk the marathon the same as the other attendees of the charity event.
