(813) 254-7119 NCAA Football Concussions

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:

  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Suicidal or violent thoughts/actions
  • Memory loss
  • Dementia
  • ALS

If you played NCAA football and have symptoms of neurological issues caused by concussions, you may be eligible to seek compensation from the NCAA.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
