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.
