Concussions, Brain Injury Claims and the NHL

by Personal Injury Claims Blawg on April 23, 2012

Below is a guest personal injury article regarding concussions, brain injury claims and the NHL.

One of the worrying factors that the NHL seems to be unable to control is the high number of concussions and brain injuries that the players sustain during the games. For the first time, the league disclosed the fact that the number of concussions in this season is on par with last year’s number. When such accidents happen it would be interesting to find out how many (if any) players decide to file brain injury claims for the injuries that they have suffered.

NHL obviously doesn’t release the exact number of victims of head injuries but it states with serenity that it does not have a concussion–related crisis or epidemic. However, despite what many players, agents and media representatives suggested, NHL had no proof to sustain their claims.

What is more worrying is the fact that almost anyone that has any connection with the league can recite the names of the most famous players that have been injured. However, how many third and fourth line players have been injured and nobody has a clue how they are, if they have presses head injury claims or not and so on. The main concern is that it will take a lot of concussions suffered by the star players for the NHL to admit the fact that they have an epidemic on their hands. The average player that was traumatized by the game and is now suffering brain damage is surely disadvantaged in this situation where the only thing that he can do is to file brain injury claims and start a legal fight with the NHL.

The fact that some players are superstars and some are not should not be measured in the concussions that one has to sustain until his rights are respected. More safety equipment, the red line introduced back in the field, hiring a team of experts in order to analyze the problem and give reasonable conclusions and advice. All of these are very important aspects that should be at least taken into consideration.

When you have been involved in this kind of accident then you should make sure that you file head injury claims. This is the only way that one can make sure that his rights are respected and that you receive the compensation you deserve. With the right financial help you will be able to pay your medical treatment and you will also make sure that your family won’t have to support you with money.

If you are planning to file head injury claims then you should make sure that you hire the best solicitors in order to help you. With their expertise and their help you will be able to win the case in court and not have to worry about the legal process. Brain injuries can leave you paralyzed, unable to speak or move for the rest of your life. You will need constant medical attention and care and this is why you have to file claims. Receiving compensation for your medical care is the only way you will be able to make sure that you will have a chance in the future.
