    NHL Hockey Concussions Injury Lawyer

    In 2018, the National Hockey League (NHL) reached a settlement in a lawsuit for injuries to players caused by concussions and head injuries. There were 146 players listed on the lawsuit, which were offered a settlement payout. However, this is far from the end of litigation for former NHL players. Many players are seeking personal injury lawsuits against the NHL for injuries caused by head trauma and concussions.

    NHL players are among many collegiate and professional athletes to seek damages caused by poor safety regarding brain injuries. The first major lawsuit was against the NFL, with 4,500 former players seeking compensation for concussion injuries, with players in the NCAA to follow. In the case of NHL players, it is alleged that the NHL neglected to protect or warn players about the dangers of brain injuries caused by concussions. As a result, many former NHL players are living with long-term brain conditions that affect their health and quality of life.

    Signs of Concussion-Related Brain Injuries

    Since the NFL concussion lawsuit was filed in 2012, there has been light shed upon the dangers of concussions and head trauma. Evidence has shown that concussions, especially those with repeated concussions, can be at risk for serious brain injuries. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, is one result. It is a degenerative brain condition that can cause various impairments. Some of the signs of long-term brain injury caused by head trauma or concussions include:

    • Depression or mood swings
    • Difficulty concentrating
    • Short-term memory loss
    • Dementia
    • Suicidal thoughts or behavior
    • Headaches

    If you are a former NHL player and believe you may be suffering from CTE or other brain injuries related to head trauma, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today. We can discuss your claim and help you determine whether you could seek compensation for your injuries.

    Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

    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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
