Former college football players have recently hit the National Collegiate Athletic Association with a barrage of class action lawsuits alleging that the organization failed to protect student athletes from the risk of concussions.

Concussions can lead to long-term problems, including brain damage, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and memory loss, allege the plaintiffs.

The NCAA class action lawsuits further allege that the association knew of the increased risks faced by college athletes who experience concussions, but failed to implement safer policies, like rigorous concussion management protocols.

One plaintiff, Abe Mack IV, who filed an NCAA concussion class action lawsuit alleges that while playing football at Cameron University in Oklahoma from 1991 to 1992, he suffered multiple concussions, along with other hits.

“During the course of a college football season, athletes absorb more than 1,000 impacts greater than 10 Gs (gravitational force) and, worse yet, the majority of football-related hits to the head exceed 20 Gs, with some approaching 100 Gs,” alleges the NCAA concussion class action lawsuit.
