IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19

Sports Concussions

The health risks associated with high-contact sports like football, soccer, and others are hardly a new phenomena. But a recent focus on the effects of trauma to the head, spinal cord and brain have shone a light on organizations like the NFL and NCAA, who make huge profits off players risking their lives every day — and the failure of these governing bodies to adequately protect these athletes pursuing their careers.

Despite sports being a hugely lucrative industry, collegiate institutions and professional sports organizations have not protected their players season after season, leaving the athletes and their families to deal with medical complications and brain injuries such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) — the effects of which can last a lifetime and even result in death.

About ALS and CTE Brain Injuries

Progressive degenerative diseases of the brain and nervous system like CTE and ALS are commonly diagnosed later in life in people who have a history of repetitive brain trauma. Career football players are one of the highest-likely groups of individuals to develop these types of debilitating conditions. However, athletes in other sports and high school and collegiate athletes may also fall victim to these diseases.

The courts have found a connection between years of playing high-contact sports and institutional failure on behalf of sports leagues and football equipment companies who made inadequate efforts to protect them from life-altering injuries. Athletes at every level—not only professional or collegiate levels—are potential victims of sports-related injuries like CTE and ALS.
