Holding the NFL Liable For the Player’s Injuries

Football is a favorite past time for many Americans. While many enjoy watching the game as much as the players enjoy playing it, football also has a dark side that the NFL may have been trying to hide for years.

Personal Injury Attorney

The National Football League (NFL) has been aware of the dangers posed by the game since as early as the 1920’s. Yet, the officials have chosen not to properly warn players of the dangers, especially the dangers of concussions, until June 2010. In fact, there is evidence showing that the NFL purposefully concealed the underlying dangers by sponsoring studies that downplayed the direct link of concussions to traumatic brain injuries.

 Get Immediate Medical Attention

If you or someone you know has experienced the early signs of a brain injury that may have been linked to concussion injuries during your pro-football days, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Although you may not be able to prevent such injuries, the appropriate, timely medical attention may prevent the problem from getting bigger.In fact, it is recommended that every former pro-football player be tested for the possibility of head-related injuries, even if they are not currently experiencing any symptoms.

After more than 90 years, the NFL recognized that football players who experience concussions may be at a significant risk for head injuries, such as dementia, memory loss and traumatic brain injuries. However, this may have come a little too late as numerous lawsuits have been filed for fraud, negligence and the failure to warn of such dangers.

 Hire an Experienced Attorney

If you or someone you know is suffering the long-term effects of a concussion suffered during your NFL days, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. To protect your legal rights and ensure that you get the full extent of damages that you deserve, you should seek the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney.
