Head Trauma Litigation
If you have suffered one or more concussions while playing in the NFL, please read the following message from Attorney Watters:
You are probably aware that several law firms nationwide have filed CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS on behalf of former NFL players seeking medical monitoring for the effects of repetitive traumatic brain injury, concussions, and cumulative head trauma. These actions have been consolidated in the United States District Court in Philadelphia and seek to compel the NFL to provide treatment and medical monitoring for former NFL players who are, or could be one day in the future, victims of the repetitive traumatic brain injury they sustained while they played in the NFL.
Hundreds of players and their spouses have also filed INDIVIDUAL LAWSUITS seeking money damages, treatment, and medical monitoring for the actual neurological injuries they sustained during their NFL careers.
The investigation into this problem has revealed that repetitive traumatic brain injuries sustained by former NFL players during their NFL careers is pervasive and possibly an epidemic. Rather than implement a system that put the players’ short‐term and long‐term health as the NFL’s primary concern, it is being argued that the NFL may have obfuscated and minimized the risks of repetitive head trauma.
Brain injuries are among the most debilitating personal injuries any victim can sustain. They affect not only the injured person, but spouses, family members and close friends as well. As a wife of a former player, and an attorney handling NFL disability claims, I have witnessed the short and long term effects of repeated concussions over an entire career and can relate to the hardships a family must face after retirement.
If you would like more information, please feel free to call our office at 407-351-5151. I look forward to sharing what I have discovered in researching these lawsuits and the conversations I have had with the top firms handling these claims to help you make an informed decision.
*DEADLINE TO FILE: There may be time limits which govern your ability to sue, so you should speak with an attorney about this matter as soon as possible.
