NFL Medication Litigation Lawyer

Filing a Claim on Behalf of Former NFL Players

The Webster Law Firm ("TWLF") is proud to announce that our personal injury attorneys in Houston are currently representing over thirty former National Football League players, and counting, against the NFL for the long term debilitating effects they have suffered, and will continue to suffer from, as a result of the medications they were forced to take from their teams, trainers, and doctors.

TWLF will be filing a lawsuit against the NFL for illegally dispensing powerful narcotics to players, before, during, and after NFL games, without any regard to their long-term health. Throughout the years, team physicians and trainers across the NFL routinely provided painkillers and other controlled substances, sometimes illegally, to players so they could mask their pains. Among the narcotics were Percocet, Percodan, Vicodin, Toradol, and Ambien, to name a few.

Types of Injuries Covered in the Claim

The players have suffered and continue to suffer a range of debilitating effects as a result of the drugs. Players have experienced chronic muscle and bone injuries, severe and permanent nerve damage, organ damage, and addiction to these narcotics, among other injuries. Players have explained that team doctors and trainers put these drugs in players' "cocktails" and gave them to players absent the players' request.

Who Is Involved in the Case?

Currently, about 750 former NFL players have already filed suit in the United States District Court of Northern California. The lawsuit covers the years of 1968-2008 and can include over a thousand players as the lawsuit proceeds. Our Houston injury lawyers will add several more players to this litigation in hopes that the NFL will right the wrongs they have committed. The Webster Law Firm has also filed suit concerning concussion injuries suffered by NFL players.
