NCAA Settles Head Injury Lawsuit

Published on Aug 13, 2014 at 12:22 pm in Personal Injury.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has settled a class-action lawsuit brought by former college athletes claiming to have been injured by concussions during college play. In the proposed settlement in the US District Court in Chicago, the NCAA, the governing body for college sports, will set aside $70 million for the treatment of injured players, and adopt a policy guiding coaches and players as to when current athletes can return to play if they’ve suffered a concussion.

The payout of this settlement is structured differently than the proposed NFL concussion settlement, where the funds will go directly to injured players. The NCAA agreement and $70 million will not go directly to players, but will require individual players to sue separately to make a case for their need for compensation.

Roof repair specialists say the first winter storms bring a deluge of calls, and in most cases the homeowner knew there was a problem and was putting off repairs.

A good start is to walk around the outside of your house. Take a look at your gutters – clean them out now, and check for sturdiness. If you’re up to it, you can climb on the roof and check if any shingles are torn away. If you see moss growing on the roof, spray wash it with a 50% mixture of water and bleach.
