    TIME Weighs in on NFL Concussion Policies

    By: Seeger Weiss LLP on January 6, 2012

    In a recent piece in TIME, sports columnist Sean Gregory examines the National Football League‘s policies regarding on-field injuries.

    In a recent piece in TIME, sports columnist Sean Gregory examines the National Football League‘s policies regarding on-field injuries. As Gregory notes, in response to the widely publicized injury of Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, the NFL has recently refined its rules on concussions, now requiring an independent trainer to be present at all games. But according to Gregory, this effort isn’t enough to keep players safe. He suggests that the League should place a neurologist in the press box along with the trainer, to ensure that someone with a specialty in concussions is present.

    Even prior to the helmet-on-helmet hit involving Colt McCoy, Seeger Weiss LLP has been putting significant pressure on the NFL to improve its treatment of players’ concussions. In early December, the experienced drug injury and medical malpractice attorneys of Seeger Weiss filed a lawsuit against the League on behalf of 11 former players. These athletes now suffer from a host of ailments due to the League’s repeated mistreatment and neglect of concussions.

    If you have suffered from a sports related injury or have experienced any of the adverse effects of Toradol, a drug administered by the NFL that is  known to decrease the warning signs of a concussion, contact Seeger Weiss today. Our drug injury and medical malpractice attorneys will review your case for free.
