“You’re a good lawyer. You’ll figure it out.”

We all know the story of how  playing football involves serious health risks- especially injuries to  the brain from violent physical contact.   But public awareness didn’t start with big headlines. It started when  a client asked a lawyer for help with a problem.   Below is a link that tells that story.

I especially like  it  because it stresses the bond between lawyer and client.  It also points out that the true effect of a lawsuit often can go well beyond legal judgment.  Here the NFL was able to settle the lawsuit, but the future of football as a sport will from now on  be in jeopardy until someone figures out how to prevent the terrible toll  it exacts on players.
