NCAA Football Concussions Injury Lawyer
Did you play collegiate football for a team in the National Collegiate Athletes Association (NCAA) and sustain injuries linked to concussions? You may be eligible to seek compensation for your injuries. Concussions have been linked to serious brain injuries and cognitive conditions that have caused pain, suffering and even death for former football players. The legal team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law can help determine if you could have a claim against the NCAA and are eligible to receive financial damages for your injury.
There has been a class action lawsuit brought against the NCAA for negligence regarding player safety and concussions. This followed a class action lawsuit against the NFL for similar allegations for former players. The allegations are that players were exposed to unsafe conditions that could result in long-term injuries. Poorly designed helmets may not have provided adequate protection against concussions and head trauma. Plus, players may not have been warned of the extent of damage that can occur with repeated concussions from playing NCAA football.
Symptoms of Concussion, Brain Injuries
There has been evidence compiled during the NFL and NCAA lawsuits about the injuries that may result from concussions. CTE is a degenerative brain injury that can be caused by repeated head trauma and is a condition that has been found in the brains of former football players. Some of the symptoms and signs of CTE and other brain injuries caused by concussions include:
- Mood swings
- Suicidal or violent thoughts/actions
- Memory loss
