Case in Point

Insufficient helmet padding contributes to high school football player's injury

The parents of the teenager, who suffered a traumatic brain injury after a hit, alleged defective polyurethane padding in the front of the helmet lost its shock-absorbing capacity. Suit also alleged the school district negligently allowed the teen to play with an earlier concussion. The helmet maker settled for $500,000, and the school district settled for about $4.38 million. Eveland v. City of San Marcos.
