Football Head Injuries | Romanucci & Blandin
Although head injuries can be sustained while playing any sport, the majority occur while playing football. Many professional football players suffer at least one concussion during their career and those concussions can have lasting damage. Multiple concussions can lead to memory loss, lack of concentration, headaches, speech problems or other neurological issues.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a football head injury, including a concussion, our Chicago personal injury attorneys can help you seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering or lost wages.
Chicago Sports-Related Head Injury Litigation Specialists
Our attorneys have experience handling sports injury cases for our clients, including football-related head injuries. If a football player sustains multiple concussions, there can be serious neurological effects. If a football player has suffered a concussion and returns to play before they have fully recovered, they are at risk for developing second impact syndrome (SIS). Second impact syndrome occurs if the brain has swelled rapidly after a player has suffered a second concussion before their initial concussion has fully healed.
Football players who have suffered from multiple concussions or SIS may be put at an increased risk of developing learning difficulties, including memory loss, lack of concentration, difficulties processing new information and they may also experience behavioral changes.
Head injuries while playing football can have very serious consequences and may require extensive medical attention. Our experienced personal injury attorneys are here to ensure that you are not weighed down with financial burden during your difficult time.
