When asked which athletes are most likely to suffer from a concussion, many would answer “football players.” Football is a brutal sport in which every play results in bone jarring physical contact. However, that answer is not necessarily correct. The fact is, concussions happen at an alarming rate in lacrosse, soccer, wrestling, ice hockey, baseball, skiing and field hockey. Athletes in any sport can be at risk for suffering a concussion whether it is the physicality of the sport, the errant throw that hits a head or the fall to the ground. And while Locks Law Firm (LLF) is actively representing nearly 1,500 retired NFL players in the concussion litigation against the NFL, other suits are pending against the NHL and WWE. This is a serious issue for pro athletes and for youth, as well.
