The NFL Concussion Cover-up: Concealing Brain Damage Risks

A central claim of the lawsuits against the NFL is that the League deliberately concealed the risks of repeated head injuries to thousands of players. The litigation hinges on whether lawyers representing the players can show that the NFL committed fraud in misrepresenting the health risks of concussions in football. The evidence appears insurmountable: the NFL lied.

Get Legal Help For Your NFL Head Injury Concerns

Our Law Firm wants to speak to former/retired NFL Players interested in joining the lawsuits being brought against the NFL for ignoring the health and safety of the players. We may be able to help you and your family recover medical expenses, obtain long term care and prevent this from happening to younger players.  

NFL Ignored Risks to Players

Our lawyers believe that the National Football League has for many years ignored, and may have actively withheld medical proof that players were subjecting themselves to long term health problems caused by both concussions and ordinary repetitive head contact.  Players were led to believe that helmets provided high levels of protection when even the helmet manufacturers acknowledged that they did not.  Despite evidence of significant risks, the NFL failed to provide adequate information to players, the union and refused to alter rules of play that would have made the game safer.  In fact, according to the lawsuits being brought the NFL encouraged and promoted the most dangerous contact during play despite massive medical evidence that multiple concussions and other traumatic brain injuries frequently led to long term effects such as mental illness, cognitive and motor impairments, dementia and other significant problems. According to the legal case, the NFL even encouraged players to conceal concussions and to keep playing with head injuries. 

Holding the NFL accountable

We believe that by failing to inform players of the long-term health risks they faced, the NFL should be held to account to help the players who have been injured and forgotten. Our law firm is bringing lawsuits against the NFL on behalf of former players and their families.  You have a limited window of time to act as these lawsuits are happening now.
