Trusted By The Best Professional Athletes

The Law Office of Patrick G. Shea, APC, in San Diego, currently represents several former NFL players and is conducting an ongoing investigation into the long-term effects of concussions and other work-related injuries suffered by former NFL players. We have been sought-out for this task because we are one of Southern California’s leading workers’ compensation and personal injury law firms.

Inadequate Safety Precautions And NFL Injuries

Our personal injury legal team has relationships with leading doctors and medical investigators, and we have a history of success winning millions of dollars for our injured clients. We are performing a thorough analysis of the relationship between concussions and cognitive degenerative symptoms, including, but not limited to:

  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Memory loss

This research will be used to further assess which entities, if any, were negligent in failing to exercise their duties to protect former players. If players were not advised about the risk of head injuries or repeated blows to the head or were not offered adequate post-concussion medical treatment before returning to work, compensation may be available. Our legal team is more than prepared to take action if the safety of players was not prioritized by the NFL.
