Lawyers Troubled by Link between Concussions and Long-term Brain Trauma in Football Players
(PRWEB) March 07, 2013
Reiner, Simpson, Slaughter & Wood, a leading personal injury law firm in Northern California, applaud the recent $50 million investment in concussion technology by the National Football League (NFL) and General Electric (GE). The $50 million is intended to spur development of imaging technology designed to detect concussions along with creating safer materials for helmets. As a personal injury law firm, Reiner, Simpson, Slaughter & Wood applaud these efforts to improve player safety.
“Many of our lawyers in Redding CA are big football fans but have been increasingly concerned about player safety, especially relating to brain trauma,” said founding partner Russell Reiner. “After too many years of inaction, we are happy to see the NFL making a significant investment to understand and prevent this type of trauma. This large investment in technology and the promise to staff future NFL games with neurological consultants are good steps forward. We hope the NFL will partner with other companies like General Electric to further improve player safety.”
