Shortly before the beginning of this football season, the National Football League (NFL) announced a $765 billion settlement with thousands of former NFL football players who have suffered concussion related injuries. While the settlement must still be approved by the court, it is important not only for the football players and their families, but also for Kentucky brain injury victims and their families.
What Kentucky Brain Injury Victims Need to Know About This Settlement
It isn’t the large amount of money involved in the NFL settlement that is most relevant for Kentucky brain injury victims and their families. Instead, it is awareness about the long term dangers of concussions. In just seconds after a serious blow to the head, brain cells may begin to shut down. Serious, potentially fatal consequences, including dementia, Alzheimer’s and other complications can occur.
These complications occur not only after football tackles, but also after Kentucky car crashes and other types of personal injury accidents.
