Has the National Football League been hiding the fact that its players could be facing long-term neurological dangers? Did the NFL train its players to tackle with their heads, knowing that it would make the players vulnerable to neurological injury and damage? These are just some of the concerns that are forming the grounds for the lawsuits being brought against the NFL for concussion and other head injuries
As early as the 1920s, the NFL has been aware of the dangers posed by concussions. But yet it chose not to properly warn its players until June 2010. Additionally, there is overwhelming evidence that shows the NFL purposefully obscured the underlying dangers by sponsoring internal studies based on junk science while downplaying the dangers of concussions and their direct link to traumatic brain injuries.
If you or a loved one has experienced the early signs of a brain injury, which could have been linked to concussions during your pro-football days, it is important to get treatment and tested early before the problem becomes something bigger. We recommend that every former player get an exam and be aware of their rights, even if they are not currently experiencing any symptoms.
At Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C., we are dedicated to representing the rights of former players against the NFL and its affiliates in response to their misrepresentation and out right suppression of the serious health effects of concussions experienced by NFL players.
In representing our clients, we will work hard to prove that the NFL teams and their coaches knew or should have known that they were putting their players in danger by forcing them to continue playing after experiencing concussions and not taking these injuries seriously.
After more than 90 years, the NFL has finally admitted that concussions can lead to dementia, memory loss and other symptoms. However, this has come a little too late as they are now facing lawsuits for fraud, negligence and failure to warn.
