Can a football player sue the NFL for brain injuries?

Last year, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez took his own life after killing his friend over a perceived slight. This followed his acquittal from murdering two strangers five years earlier. Autopsy research definitively demonstrates that Hernandez’s brain suffered extreme damage due to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). This affliction can lead to severe issues with rage and volatility as well as inhibited impulse control.

In the wake of a personal injury, avoid social media.

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident and you’ve filed a personal injury claim, it’s more important than ever to be careful about what you post on social media. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media site, whatever you post becomes permanently available—even if you later delete it from your profile. Even if you have high privacy settings on your accounts, there are still ways to access your information. Assume that whatever you post can be seen by the general public.

What is Gadolinium? Plus a New FDA Retention Warning

Gadolinium is a liquid, man-made heavy-metal substance used in MRI and MRA scans. It is part of a gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), which is used to make images in MRI scans clearer. Gadolinium-based contrast agents are given via an intravenous injection that generally takes between 10 and 30 seconds.

UK to Remove Two Gadolinium Contrast Agents from Market

UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has announced that it will remove two gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) from the market in the wake of a review that found some patients are at risk of retaining the heavy-metal. The announcement was made on December 14, 2017, and will take effect February 1, 2018. Meanwhile, other gadolinium contrast agents will have their use limited.
