(813) 254-7119 NFL Football Concussions

NFL Football Concussions Injury Lawyer

For decades, players in the NFL were exposed to brain-altering concussions that put them at risk for serious cognitive and mental issues. Poorly designed helmets and a failure by the NFL to protect and warn players of the dangers of concussions brought about a class action lawsuit for damages. It is expected that over $1 billion will be paid to former players for concussion injuries.

The NFL concussion class action lawsuit was initiated by 4,500 former NFL players or family members in 2012. The claim was that unsafe helmets and policies resulted in long-term injuries from concussions. These injuries include CTE, mood swings, blurred vision, headaches, ALS and insomnia. There have been links to suicide and violence to others, all alleged to be caused by brain injuries from repeated concussions while playing in the NFL. The class action lawsuit was won in 2013 and by July 2018, over $500 million had been paid out in settlements to players and their families, but many more players are eligible.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
