New brain injury class action lawsuit against the NCAA

A class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, on behalf of recent college football and soccer players against the N.C.A.A. claiming that the association has been negligent regarding awareness and treatment of brain injuries to athletes.

A portion of the class-action suit reads, “The N.C.A.A. has engaged in a long-established pattern of negligence and inaction with respect to concussions and concussion-related maladies sustained by its student-athletes, all the while profiting immensely from those same student-athletes.”

This suit follows under legal action taken by brain injured players against the NFL for its callous indifference to protecting the health and safety of players suffering from concussions.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a brain injury caused by an accident or medical negligence, the brain injury attorneys at the New York brain injury law firm of DE CARO & KAPLEN, LLP may be able to provide legal assistance.
