The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) recently created a $70 million fund to settle a head-injury class action lawsuit, KCCI News 8 reported on August 1.
According to reports, the fund will be used to check thousands of former and current sports players for brain damage related to head injuries. In the settlement, NCAA also agreed to the implementation of a policy that will instruct whether or not a player returns to the game after sustaining a head injury. The settlement does not set aside money for those suffering from brain trauma; brain trauma victims can file a separate lawsuit against the NCAA.
It is often the case that those who suffer brain injuries can no longer secure jobs due to the debilitating effects of the injury.
