Former Football Player Sues Bowling Green State University and Staff over Concussions

Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP filed a lawsuit against Bowling Green State University on behalf of a former BGSU student-athlete, alleging that they failed to protect the player from multiple concussions and residual head trauma and improperly revoked his academic scholarship. Cody Silk allegedly received multiple concussions while playing football for BGSU. These concussions allegedly went unreported and untreated by BGSU football staff members until Cody began experiencing memory loss. The university and football team's inability to follow BGSU's own concussion policy as well as widely accepted concussion management practices has left Cody with post-concussion symptoms and a medical disqualification from sports, the complaint claims. The lawsuit also alleges Cody was wrongly revoked of his academic scholarship by the university and denied his appeal. The complaint alleges that when Cody underwent an initial physical evaluation on April 16, 2010, no inquiry was made as to any prior concussions, and no baseline -- identifying possible susceptibilities to concussions -- was established or confirmed, as required under BGSU policy and generally accepted concussion management standards. The lawsuit also alleges that Cody was given improper equipment, further putting him at risk of a concussion. It details that when he put on his helmet, he found it did not fit and asked the Equipment Manager for a new one, but was refused. He also allegedly was denied a replacement when his chin strap broke during practice, a violation of NCAA rules according to the lawsuit.
