We Can Help with the Unique Challenges that Come Along with a Football Head Injury Case

We Can Help with the Unique Challenges that Come Along with a Football Head Injury CaseNumerous professional football players have had major brain injuries in recent years that have been connected to their time on the pitch. The diagnosis of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in many cases could not be made before the player passed away, prompting their family to file wrongful death claims against the NFL in an effort to obtain compensation.

Brain injuries can occur in high school or college football if they do in professional football. Depending on the extent of the injuries, the athletes may experience minor symptoms like headaches or serious, lifelong issues like cognitive decline, personality changes, and behavioral issues, which can ruin any young student-bright athlete's future.

Football players and their families need recompense when carelessness results in head injury. However, obtaining this compensation can be challenging because football head injury cases frequently involve unique difficulties. Keep reading to learn more and contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 if you need help from a football head injury attorney.

We can help with cases in which negligence is challenging to prove

In order to hold a football coach, school, or organization accountable for an injury to the player's head, you must demonstrate that they were careless in how they handled the situation. In other words, we must prove that they went against the accepted level of care. As we learn more about how concussion injuries can be diagnosed and how long players should be off the field following an injury, the standard of treatment is changing, which makes this tough.

We have relationships with expert witnesses

Expert witnesses are frequently required to prove the standard of care and how the responsible party breached it in their care of the wounded athlete. The cause and circumstances of the football head injury, the severity of the symptoms, and the effects on the athlete's present and future health require the explanation of medical professionals.

We can connect the dots in cases where symptoms are not linear

Questionable Causation: In the case of a concussion, symptoms show up immediately and are easily connected to participation in football. However, it could take some time before signs of additional football head injuries, like Second Impact Syndrome or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, are recognized. This could provide the defense more room to claim that something other than football was to blame for the brain injury. Once more, the facts of the case will need to be established by expert testimony.
