Former NFL professional athletes across the country have filed more than 80 lawsuits seeking damages for brain injuries suffered on the playing field. All those lawsuits have now been consolidated into one. The common, central message that all the ex-athletes are asserting is that the NFL concealed from them the fact that head trauma suffered during football games frequently leads to brain injuries that are severe and permanent.

The players believe that as a consequence, the NFL should be compelled to provide compensation and expenses for those currently suffering from debilitating neurological conditions, including Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. They also argue that even those who are currently not experiencing such mental difficulties have cause for concern about their future health, and therefore are in dire need of systematic medical monitoring to be paid for by the NFL.

The plaintiffs feel that the NFL glorified the violent aspects of the game while minimizing the risks of concussions and other head traumas caused by repetitive blows to the skull. They say that the league, content to profit from the physical punishment meted out to players, was extremely lax by failing to give them warnings and known information about risks, or to impose safety rules that might have saved some players' brains from cognitive disarray.


Car accidents can happen in an instant, unexpectedly. Often victims of car accidents can suffer severe injuries or even be killed in the event of a crash. On Friday last week, a Japanese Olympian got into a car accident in California.

The professional snowboarder had been driving in an SUV when the vehicle flipped over that evening. Investigators believe that the vehicle flipped several times before coming to a stop, seriously damaging most of the vehicle. Responders initially believed that the driver did not survive. But somehow the snowboarder walked away from the wreck with minor injuries.

There are a number of ways that car accidents can occur. The driver could be distracted behind the wheel, an animal could jump out in front of the vehicle, or the road conditions could be dangerous. California Highway Patrol who is investigating the crash has proposed the theory that the crash occurred because the snowboarder fell asleep behind the wheel.
