Football child injury led to men's death, lawsuit

Football players in New York and across the country often await their favorite football team's next game. Despite the popularity of the sport, additional research is placing a spotlight on the risk these players may face. This harm can even be seen in those who played as youths. In fact, allegations regarding a child injury suffered by two football players are now at the center of a court case.

Coping with the costs of a child injury in New York

Parents in New York and across the country often go to great lengths to protect their children's physical and mental well-being. Despite their best efforts however, their children may still experience a child injury to their brain due to someone else's negligence. Unfortunately, these injuries may often leave families wondering how they will afford the medical treatment their child may require for the rest of his or her life.

While a report by PBS found that the link between football and concussions remains unclear, there is evidence to suggest a link between memory loss and concussions. In fact, high school football players are more likely to experience concussions than college players, and the number could even be higher because some injuries go unreported. In some, but not all, cases, the school itself could be liable.
