Lawyer2Lawyer Workers' Compensation Claims For NFL Players Coping With Dementia

As first reported in a series of New York Times articles by reporter Alan Schwarz, researchers have linked pro football careers and concussions with climbing rates of depression, dementia and even Alzheimer's disease.  Please join me and my fellow attorney and co-host Robert Ambrogi as we welcome Christopher Nowinski, President and CEO of the Sports Legacy Institute and Attorney Alan S. Pierce from the Law offices of Alan S. Pierce & Associates and host of Workers' Comp Matters, to discuss the latest in workers' comp claims against the NFL. They focus on the long-term effects of concussions from football, the NFL's role in helping these players, the workers' comp issues involved and creating public awareness about this serious issue in the NFL and in other sports.  For more information on this important issue, including over 100 New York Times articles by Alan Schwarz, click here.
