Ohio teen's brain injuries caused by inappropriate football drill: Lawsuit

A 16-year-old Ohio teen suffered serious brain injuries during a barbaric football drill last September and his family is hoping that his story will prevent similar situations in the future.

According to a lawsuit recently filed in federal court, the Woodmore High School football player began vomiting and collapsed after a drill where coaches instructed certain players who "didn't hustle" to stand still and not defend themselves while teammates violently tackled them.

The injured player became disoriented and began vomiting but coaches did not call an ambulance, according to the suit. The teen spent that night in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for treatment of a traumatic brain injury.

Ohio loves high school football, and parents are aware that their child is risking head injury when he or she takes the field. Ohio has taken steps toward improving the safety of this sport, but irresponsible coaches can quickly undermine these important precautions.

If your child has been seriously harmed in a sport and you believe that an adult's negligence was the cause, speak with an experienced Ohio personal injury attorney.
