SPORTS INJURY LITIGATION

Registration opened in the NFL Concussion Settlement on February 8, 2017.  All Settlement Class Members must register to be eligible for benefits.  If you are a retired NFL Player and need assistance, please call Edward Stone at (203) 504-8425 or email us at eddie@edwardstonelaw.com.

Despite overwhelming medical evidence that on-field concussions lead directly to brain injuries and frequent tragic repercussions for retired players and their families,  the National Football League failed to take effective action to protect players from known risks associated with repeated head trauma.  To make matters worse, the NFL concealed relevant and material medical information about treatment protocols from players so they could stay on the field and make Billions of dollars for the NFL.  Little by little, information is surfacing that shows that the NFL deliberately covered up  medical evidence that shows a clear link between on field concussions and brain injury.  While athletes in other sports who had suffered concussions were being told to rest for significant  periods of time, the NFL fostered a “tough guy” culture that encouraged teams to send players who had suffered obvious concussions back onto the field too soon putting them at significant risk.  In our view, The NFL has failed to take reasonable steps to protect players from devastating, even fatal head injuries.  To make matters worse, the NFL has done everything in its power to hide the issue and mislead players, teams and the general public about known medical risks associated with concussions.

Edward Stone Law is working with top experts in the brain trauma field and can quickly assess the extent to which you may or may not have a viable claim for damages against the NFL.  Our experts will help to diagnose or confirm a diagnosis of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (“MTBI”) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) and we can help you or your family with information and documentation about support services and medical literature pertaining to MTBI and TBI symptoms and treatment.  We offer a free initial documentation review and consultation and we are handling these types of cases on a reasonable contingency fee basis.  If we cannot secure a recovery for you or your family we will not charge you a fee.

We believe that many former players may have suffered severe pathological and debilitating injuries caused by the concussive and sub-concussive impacts that have plagued a number of former professional football players. Sometimes symptoms show up immediately, sometimes they develop over time.  If you or a friend or loved one played in the NFL and suffer from symptoms ranging from headaches to impaired thinking, altered mental functioning including memory loss, you can contact us by email at eddie@edwardstonelaw.com or call us at (203) 504-8425, or fax us at (203) 348-8477 for a free case assessment.  Please specify your request for a free initial consultation.  All matters will be handled in strict confidence.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance with respect to the sale of your life policy or a life settlement investment,

SPORTS INJURY LITIGATION

Brain trauma is devastating for athletes. There is a clear link between on-field concussions & brain injury and new evidence suggests that known risks may have been concealed from former players.

PENSION DE-RISKING

Pension de-risking transfers cause a loss of benefits and protections to retirees. Legislation recently passed in Connecticut replaces some of those lost protections.

LIFE SETTLEMENTS
Life settlement transactions offer seniors the opportunity to monetize existing life insurance policies and utilize the value of their policy while they are still living.
STRUCTURED SETTLEMENTS
Predatory "sales" tactics seem rampant and Structured Settlement Protection Acts might not be "protecting" the very people the legislation intended to protect.
LIFE INSURANCE & ANNUITIES
Know before you go - all life insurance and annuity products are not the same.  Complex product designs and a piecemeal network of state laws make it difficult to understand your options.
