Gresham, P.C. to Represent Injured NFL Players and their Families

Dallas personal injury lawyer, R. Dean Gresham, will now be representing National Football League players and their families in personal injury cases. The longstanding controversy surrounding NFL players and the long-term effects of their injuries, concussions, in particular, has often been glossed over. However, now reports are coming to surface of NFL players who have suffered long-term, debilitating effects of concussions.

The Consequences of Concussions

Those moments after a concussion, one’s life hangs in the balance. Everything can change in an instant. The unpredictable nature of concussions makes treating them incredibly difficult and potentially dangerous without immediate treatment. It can be easy to overlook or even ignore the symptoms of a concussion. It can be easy to walk away from the incident and shake off any feelings that something might be wrong.

These are some of the signs of a concussion:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Blurry vision
  • Irritability
  • Confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Problems concentrating
  • Amnesia
  • Sensitivity to light or noise

This is one of the problems that have come under fire in NFL reports. In an article from the New Times, some of the data uncovered in past year found that many concussion cases went unreported from 1996 to 2001. This raises the question of whether or not the players are receiving enough protection.

According to the article:

But the vast majority of omitted concussions identified by The Times were included in the N.F.L.’s public injury reports, meaning that medical staffs had made the diagnoses and reported them to the league. Some of the omitted concussions were reported by the teams to the news media after a game but do not appear on the injury reports, presumably because the player’s status for the next game was not in doubt.
