NFL Concussion Attorneys
We currently represent over 700 former players, and are the best firm to handle your settlement claim!
Throughout its many years, the NFL and team franchises have continuously chosen to increase its own revenue over bettering player wellbeing as seen in the still prevalent debate over the 18 week season. NFL players subject themselves to brutal hits every game they play and while they may be compensated immensely for their time, the health risks that each player takes on are still unnecessarily high. Player health needs to remain the top priority for any sports league, especially one as dangerous as American football. Parties whose negligent acts needlessly increase the likelihood that an NFL player will incur a brain injury, need to held responsible for their heedless disregard for those that they have injured.
At Mokaram Law Firm, our attorneys love football as much as any other American, but we cannot justify watching players unnecessarily suffer concussions with the knowledge that these injuries have severe long-term consequences. There are numerous approaches that the NFL and team owners could take to better player health, yet they’d rather see increases in their own profit margins. If you are a current or former NFL player who has suffered concussions while on the field, contact our office at (713) 900-2222 to learn about NFL concussion cases.
Consequences of NFL Concussions
During the 2015 season alone, there were over 180 reported concussions in the National Football League, an average of 10.7 concussions each week over the 17-week season. While there are safety protocols and rules in place to prevent head injuries, many of these are arbitrarily enforced by referees and team trainers alike. Often responsible parties will take negligent action in order to further the entertainment value of football games. Players frequently feel forced to perform despite incurring severe head injuries in order to retain their professional careers and fans. This is incredibly dangerous for players, as repeated concussions have serious long-term effects on a person’s wellbeing, such as:
- Reduced life span
- High medical costs
- Brain damage
- Chronic headaches
- Impaired concentration and memory
- Reduced balance
Helmet technology is improving every year, however, the helmet cannot be the only protective measure for players. The brain is the most complex and vital organ in the human body, and the NFL and franchise owners should do everything in their power to protect their player’s health.
HALL OF FAMER AND OILER ALL TIME GREAT
“We met over the phone and I can truly say y’all were always one phone call away every time I needed something. Can’t say that about too many firms.”Robert Brazile
Mokaram Law Firm handled my settlement claim with speed, attention to detail, and professionalism. Though I had a great relationship with the partners at Mokaram, Maya Smith was my dedicated contact and did an amazing job of explaining the process to me, arranging exams, and managing communication between myself and the NFL. Mokaram made themselves available whenever I had a question and made a seemingly impossible process not only manageable but ultimately successful.Gerome Sapp.

“ Mokaram Law Firm was available to me day in & day out and they walked me through this entire complicated process one step at a time ”A.F.
“ The Mokaram Law Firm handled my NFL Concussion Case and by far it was the best decision I ever made because there were many firms to choose from. It really was an easy process for me because of the knowledgeable staff they have. I want to especially mention who handle my case. Although the attorneys are the lead and the face, their staff is very important and Maya Smith (who handled all my paperwork and contacts and appointments) was outstanding and very patient with me since I would never return phone calls. I always thought it would take a long time, so I was not in a hurry to do anything but she stayed on me and would not wait until I called back. She knew answers to any questions I had and had a calming demeanor to any excitement that was going on, not with me but with some of my other NFL buddies. I was very impressed with the lead attorneys and I would recommend Mokaram Law Firm for anything “J.T.
While the NFL has already approved a fund for settlements that players can apply to on their own, the attorneys at Mokaram Law Firm strongly suggest that former NFL players seek the assistance of a lawyer who can protect their best interests and help them receive the maximum compensation possible from the fund. Time to apply is limited, and the application process is not as simple as sending in a form and receiving the maximum award of $5 million. You will need to be able to prove that you are experiencing certain long-term neurological injuries, which will be challenging without the help of an experienced attorney.
