Former NFL Players File Brain Injury Claim against the League

The Philadelphia federal court has been flooded with complaints coming from former players of the National Football League (NFL) since the last month of the previous year.

Last Monday, another batch of former NLF players represented by their personal injury attorney, have filed brain injury-related complaints against the league.

In their lawsuit, the former players claim that the NFL has long been aware about the high risk of traumatic brain injury to football players but still chose not to pay no attention to the scientific evidence acknowledging the risks.

The former players assert that the league due to its careless management caused serious personal injuries not only to several players but to hundreds. The former players’ personal injury attorney stated that as the league is preparing for their championship game, it has forgotten about the legacy of the former players that built the league and are now suffering from the distressing result of the brain injury sustained from the game. 

The complainants are headed by former players Brent Boyd, Lem Barney, Joe DeLamielleure and Paul Krause. The lawsuit is claiming for a compensation for the injured former players.

Though brain injury can inflict devastation to the life of a victim, cause paralysis and even death, it can be treated in some cases. Getting the right doctor for the treatment is very important to treat the injuries. But the very fist thing to do is to get your personal injury attorney to help you achieve the right compensation for your brain injury claim. In Los Angeles, brain injury lawyers are well experienced and work only with the best doctors who know exactly what’s best for their clients.
