In recent years, many prominent NFL football players have come forward to discuss the profound and deadly effects that repeat concussions have had on their lives. Some even committed suicide after crying for help. Their testimony surprised many who did not realize how significantly repeated head injury could affect people. Research shows that concussions are not a light matter. It is no joke!
According to researchers and neurologists, brain trauma is real and very serious and can end one’s life short. A disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, has been linked to repeat brain trauma. CTE has many very serious symptoms, including:
- Memory loss
- Short-temperedness/violent outbursts
- Personality changes
- Physical abilities
You Do Not Have To Be A Football Player To Experience Brain Concussion Symptoms
A person does not have to be a football player to be affected by CTE or to be harmed by a concussion. Even one concussion is enough to cause significant damage to the brain and many of the symptoms listed above.
Our founding attorney, Scott Bergman, is an NFL-certified agent and has seen firsthand the devastating effects of CTE or a single concussion. We represent football players in their career pursuits while also representing personal injury victims whose lives have been impacted by an accident. This dual experience prepares us to represent people who have experienced concussions in sports activities, automobile, bike and pedestrian accidents and slip-and-fall accidents.
‘I Think I Have A Brain Concussion.’
If you find yourself wondering whether you sustained a concussion in an accident or from the negligence of another, it is critical that you get medical attention and then seek the help of an experienced attorney at our law firm. Our attorneys can review your medical records, police reports, evidence and witness statements, helping you understand how the law may apply in your case. We can’t predict the future, but we can tell you what is likely to happen. Then we can take aggressive and effective action to protect your rights after a concussion.
When seeking compensation for your brain injury, we can attempt to recover the money you lost due to missed time at work, medical bills, ongoing medical treatment and care, surgeries and hospital bills, property damage and other out-of-pocket costs. It may be possible to also obtain money for the pain and suffering you have endured, and future medical expenses (if you are facing permanent injury due to your condition).
The insurance company is not looking out for your best interests — we are. You may not realize the lifelong impact that your injury can have on all aspects of your life. We do not let our clients make the mistake of settling for less than their case is really worth.
A Former Nurse Helping To Fight For You
One thing that we offer that most other firms do not is a paralegal who is a former nurse. She works side-by-side with our attorneys on injury cases, helping to shed light on how the injuries impact our clients’ lives and ensuring that we seek the proper compensation for those injuries.
