Harvard Receives $100 Million from NFL Players Union to Study Brain Injuries

By on March 6, 2013

Football injuries — especially traumatic brain injuries — have been making headlines, especially in the wake of several high-profile incidents of former National Football League (NFL) football players who have committed suicide and were thought to have been victims of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) suffered during their careers.

Now, the National Football League Players Association (the NFL players union) has given Harvard University $100 million dollars for a decade-long study to look at former NFL players, with the aim of developing strategies to limit long-term brain damage. Read the rest »

Jacksonville Boxer Fights Back with Lawsuit Against Trainer and Doctors

By on February 13, 2013

The 34-year-old Jacksonville boxer had once been touted to win a gold medal in the 2012 Olympic games in London. Now, she can’t even cook or take care of herself following a traumatic brain injury she suffered in an Olympic qualifying bout in Ohio.

She is blaming her trainer and doctors for her condition, claiming that the circumstances that led to the end of her boxing career and permanent brain injuries could have been prevented if they had taken proper care of her. Read the rest »

Study Finds Long Term Damage and Vulnerabilities from Brain Injury

By Eddie Farah on January 10, 2013

Florida Brain Injury IllnessEach year, about 1.7 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and according to a new study published in the journal PLOS ONE, this can lead to long-term brain damage. TBI causes inflammation, which can suppress growth of brain cells and can make a person more vulnerable to neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

The study also points out that therapy can help stave off permanent damage, even during the most chronic period of TBI. That’s why the Orlando traumatic brain injury attorneys at Farah & Farah emphasize that you need to exercise your legal rights when a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury due to the negligence of another. We will work tirelessly to see that your family gets the compensation they will need to pay for medical care and essential rehabilitative therapy. Read the rest »

Brain-Injured Southwest Florida Girl Receives Service Dog

By Eddie Farah on December 17, 2012

In 2007 a woman drove her car through a red light and smashed into the car of a mother taking her six-year-old daughter to a birthday party. Police reports say the woman who was responsible for the accident was going 55 miles per hour at the time of the impact. The little girl suffered a traumatic brain injury — and five years later, she still cannot walk, talk, feed herself, or do any of the things that other children her age take for granted.

Personal injury attorney Eddie Farah has seen the struggles a family can go through after a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Medical and rehabilitation costs can soar, and the stresses of caring for a TBI victim can extract a heavy toll on any family. Read the rest »

March is National Cheer Safety Month

By on March 1, 2010

Most doctors and chiropractors will tell you cheerleading is the most dangerous sport around, so there is a lot to discuss concerning safety. This information comes from the 25th Annual Report from the National Center for Catastrophic Injury, which says that more than half of catastrophic injuries in female sports come from cheerleading.

Falls are the most dangerous injury, especially on a hard surface. When a girl is tossed into the air, she’s called a flyer; she can go as high as 15 to 20 feet. The girls beneath her are called bases and are supposed to catch her. When they don’t, however, the flyers can land on gym floors or hard surfaces, taking a direct hit to their neck, head, shoulder, face or any other body part. Read the rest »
