Brain Scan Shows Aaron Hernandez Had Severe C.T.E.
spacer image
A brain scan has revealed that Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end and a convicted murderer, had a severe form of the degenerative brain disease C.T.E. when he committed suicide. The posthumous examination of his brain showed that the former football player, at the age of 27, had a severe form of the disease, similar to that of players well into their 60s. An attorney for Hernandez's family stated, it is "the most severe case [researchers] had ever seen in someone of Aaron’s age." On Thursday, Hernandez's family filed a federal lawsuit against the N.F.L. and the Patriots seeking damages to compensate his 4-year-old daughter for the loss of her father.

Family Seeks Recognition for New York Firefighter Who Died in 1935

The family of a New York firefighter who lost his life after fighting a fire in 1935 says they plan to file suit, as the Fire Department of New York has failed to recognize his death as job-related. The family alleges that the 48-year-old man suffered a life-ending head injury in the line of duty and that his death should be recognized by the department. According to the lawsuit, an autopsy showed that the man's cause of death was a "fractured skull" and "lacerations of the brain," both listed as "injury incurred in fire." The family is asking that the firefighter's name be added to the department’s memorial wall in Brooklyn.

Court Ends Lawsuit Filed by High School Player Who Suffered Brain Injury
spacer image
A federal appeals court panel says that a Pennsylvania high school football player who suffered a traumatic brain injury cannot file suit against his coach or school district. According to Judge Thomas I. Vanaskie of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, no legal precedent was in place to hold the coach or the school liable for the player's injuries. The lawsuit was filed by the parents of the player in 2014 after the 17-year-old boy suffered two massive hits on the field which caused his brain injury. In depositions for the lawsuit, several teammates "testified that they believed [he] was suffering from a concussion after [the first] hit and were surprised that he was allowed to continue to practice."

Woman Claims She Was Severely Burned on Operating Table

A Mississippi woman alleges that she was severely burned while on the operating table two years ago. While the woman says that she does not believe she can file suit, due to lack of documentation of her injury and an expired statute of limitations, she is one of three women with malpractice claims against the same surgeon. According to the first woman, she awoke from a surgery in 2015 to find second and third degree burns on her upper thigh, however the state Board of Medical Licensure refused to investigate her case. One of the other women has filed suit against the surgeon alleging she was left partially paralyzed after the surgeon failed to identify and remove a bone fragment caused during her surgery.
