Brain Injury Law Suit Filed Against NFL



NBC news reports that 75 former NFL players have sued the National Football League alleging that the NFL concealed the risks of concussions. Riddell - the helmet manufacturer - has also been included in the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, the NFL knew or should have known about the link between brain and head injuries and long-term health problems.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) such as concussions can have serious, long term and sometimes-permanent consequences if not detected and treated. TBIs can occur in a variety of circumstances and arise from a blunt or sudden trauma to the head. Often associated with car accidents, TBIs can occur as the result of any blow to the head, such as a motorcycle accident, a bicycle accident or sports injury as is alleged here.

Symptoms of TBIs may not show up immediately and may be vague - such as headaches, dizziness and confusion. However, if you're received a jolt or blow to your head its imperative to seek medical attention immediately. Where you have been involved in an accident, speaking to a brain injury lawyer is important in order to preserve your right to bring a lawsuit and determine your next steps.

Here, the lawsuit alleges that the NFL "knew as early as the 1920s of the harmful effects on a player's brain of concussions; however, until June of 2010 they concealed these facts from coaches, trainers, players and the public."

For more information about TBIs or if you believe you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury as the result of a sport, motorvehicle or any other type of accident, please contact the Sacramento brain injury lawyer and personal injury lawyer at Sette Law Office for a confidential consultation.
