As a college football player I suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) while on the field. Can I file a lawsuit for TBI against the coach and the college?

In this case, filing a lawsuit may be possible. Whether or not you may have a case depends on the circumstances of the case. Did the coach explain the risks associated with playing football? Is there a TBI education program in place to allow players to make informed decisions about playing football? Were team members issued regulation helmets? Were you taken off the field and assessed after being hit? The answers to these questions will help determine if you have a case against your coach and the college.

Cases like this can be quite complex, so it is best to consult with a seasoned traumatic brain injury attorney to discuss the circumstances of your case, find out what your legal rights are and what you may need to do if you wish to file a personal injury lawsuit.
