Football is a contact sport that can cause very serious injuries, such as a TBI's.
The effects of a concussion can be immediate or may take some time to appear.

A Regular Sports Practice that Causes Numerous Injuries

Football, one of America’s most loved sports, is a high-contact sport that carries a very high risk of injury for players. For a long time, the seriousness of injuries suffered by players – specifically head injuries – went unnoticed. Medical experts now, however, have a better understanding of how constant helmet-to-helmet contact is affecting players of all ages and levels.

If you suffered a serious football injury and aren’t sure who to turn to for help, look to Adamson Ahdoot LLP. With over 100 years of combined legal experience, we fight for the rights of those injured through no fault of their own. In addition, we are dedicated to helping our clients obtain maximum compensation for football brain injuries.

What are the most common head injuries in football? Two of the most frequent types of football injuries are concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).


Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a jolt, blow, or bang to the head. As a result of the head being hit, the brain is bounced or twisted inside the skull. Delicate brain cells and tissue can be damaged when the brain is shaken or bounced within the skull. Chemical changes can also occur as a result of the brain being “knocked” inside the skull.

Although players wear helmets to protect their heads, helmets don’t always stop an injury from happening, especially when most players take about 15 hits to the head per game. Many football players suffer multiple concussions throughout a season, reports show. Also, some research suggests that athletes who suffer repeated concussions in football are more likely to suffer long-term brain damage and CTE.


Most of the players affected by severe brain injuries in football act as defenders.

CTE was a little-known condition, made more public recently by the tragic deaths of well-known professional football players Junior Seau, Dave Duerson, and Chris Henry. What is CTE? CTE is a degenerative brain disease that mimics dementia and is most commonly found in people who have a history of repetitive head trauma, like in football players. At the onset of CTE, a protein in the brain malfunctions, causing a chain reaction of malfunctioning proteins. Once present, these malfunctioning proteins slowly spread throughout the brain, killing cells as they go.

According to research, CTE has been seen in athletes as young as 17, but most symptoms don’t appear until years after the head has been subjected to sustained trauma. Symptoms of CTE can range from mood disorders to cognitive function impairment.

Other types of football head injuries include:

  • Second Impact Syndrome
  • Intracranial Hematomas
  • Cerebral contusions
  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Brain Aneurysm

Following a diagnosis of brain damage in football, CTE, or any other type of head injury, don’t wait to call the office of Adamson Ahdoot LLP. Football head injury lawsuits involving football can be complex due to the amount of medical evidence required to prove how the injury occurred. Not only will we help you gather all the necessary documentation, but we’ll also work with our team of medical experts to build a solid case for football head injury compensation.
