"Our team will support you as you regain
the social skills that might have been lost"
For the new season, Premier League players will now be better protected if they suffer a head injury. These new rules have been introduced following criticism last season of when Hugo Lloris was allowed to continue playing by his manager, after he had lost consciousness playing against Everton. It also follows a number of high profile examples in the Brazil World Cup, when players who appeared concussed were allowed to play on.
Headway, the brain injury charity, have welcomed the new rules, calling them,
"An important step forward in the protection of footballers … Concussion is an evolving injury with symptoms that may take time to manifest, and if you don't get it properly assessed, it may be too late."
At Head Injury UK we are pleased to see that the Premier League is taking head injuries seriously. These measures should mean that we will never see a Premier League player endangering his health by playing on, when they should instead be receiving medical attention. If you or a family member has been affected by head injury caused by someone else, please contact Ian Shovlin us on 0800 073 0988.
We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.
The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.
If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.
