What circumstances could possibly lead you to seek the services of a traumatic brain injury attorney in New York? Debra Pyk, a mother in Wisconsin filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Pop Warner Youth Football organization last week following the suicide of Joseph Chernach, her 25 year old son. The complaint alleges that Pop Warner “recklessly exposes children to the risk of injury,” something Pyk believes resulted in the dementia and depression her son was suffering when he took his own life. Chernach played youth football with Pop Warner, though continued to play through high school on school athletic teams.
This lawsuit follows several against both professional and collegiate athletic organizations alleging that traumatic brain injury – a common consequence of contact sports – causes lasting brain damage. This damage has been shown to lead to depression, anxiety, memory loss, and violent or suicidal behavior. Tragically, these issues have been known about in sports circles for years and very little has been done to reduce their prevalence, hence the need for traumatic brain injury attorneys in New York.
Seeking damages following sports injury can be very difficult – particularly if those injuries occurred years before. That’s why you need an experienced New York traumatic brain injury attorney on your side from the moment your injury (or that of a loved one) is detected.
Some people referred to personal injury lawyers as “ambulance chasers” to reflect an attorney’s eagerness to get accident cases in order to make money. Many feel that lawyers encouraged the public to actively bring lawsuits just to generate fees for these over-eager and zealous attorneys.
