The Locks Law Firm views NCAA football as presenting the same risks to players as those of the NFL. We currently represent NCAA players in the class action for medical monitoring filed in Chicago and in individual personal injury lawsuits.
As with the NFL, the NCAA voluntarily shouldered the duty of protecting the health and safety of players. In fact, the entire purpose of the NCAA (embodied in its Constitution) is to protect the health and safety of unpaid students between the ages of 17 and 22 from exploitation by college and university athletic systems. That was why the NCAA was formed. As early as 1933, the risks of concussive brain injury were so widely recognized as dangerous in football that the NCAA issued a medical manual to all schools that included a chapter on concussion recognition and treatment. Yet not until generations later did the NCAA and its member institutions actually implement anything meaningful to protect amateur football players from this dangerous and destructive risk. Like the NFL, the NCAA and its member institutions appear to have turned a blind eye to the brain injury risk to student football players in exchange for soaring notoriety, revenue, and profits.
The Locks Law Firm intends to vigorously prosecute these cases on behalf of amateur college football players across the country.
