American football is one of the country’s favorite pastimes. While it is entertaining to watch, the game’s physicality is rough on the players. From hard tackles to equilibrium imbalances, the propensity for injury is inevitable. Unfortunately, former New York Giants Michael Cox knows this tale all too well. During a 2014 game against the Seattle Seahawks, Cox was tackled, leading to a severe injury that left him with a broken leg, damaged cartilage, and injured ankle, according to court documents. After undergoing surgery with prominent physician Dr. Dean Lorich, Cox was allegedly not entirely whole. Cox asserts that because his ankle was not fully repaired, the injury ended his career. Michael Cox then sued Dr. Lorich in 2016, and a recent verdict revealed that Cox was awarded $28.5 million in the case.
