You Deserve Justice
Although the NFL has admitted to not knowing about the direct link between concussions and brain injury, we are here to defend you against the injustice done to our players. 3rd U.S Circuit Court of Appeals Judge, Judge Thomas L. Ambro, stated that, “This settlement will provide significant and immediate relief to retired players living with the lasting scars of a NFL career”. (ChicagoTribune, 2016)
In the past, these issues have been neglected and what we are seeing today is a direct result of the NFL’s actions. This billion-dollar a year institution owes all its profits to their players and instead of helping them, they choose to neglect them. Issues such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), ALS and other debilitating neurological conditions have become prevalent in former players and it is time to fight back against the industry.
The NFL Settlement
Under the terms of a Federal District Court settlement approved by Judge Anita Brody, former players with major cognitive impairments that include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, and certain cases of CTE (usually confirmed after death) are entitled to an award. The amount of the award is impacted by the player’s age as well as the duration of his playing career.
Eligible parties that register in time may receive the following benefits:
Baseline neuropsychological and neurological examinations, along with medical testing, counseling and/or treatment
Monetary awards for aforementioned major cognitive conditions
Education programs promoting safety and injury prevention with respect to football players
Unfortunately, the limited terms of the settlement exclude many former players with TBI from receiving the coverage they need and deserve. Also, there are many who do qualify for benefits under the settlement but are dissatisfied with its terms.
Whatever the case is for you, it is highly recommended that you retain a trusted NFL concussion attorney. It can mean the difference between obtaining the financial compensation and benefits you need and possibly receiving nothing.
