Football Helmet Manufacturers The Target Of Lawsuit After Deceased Ohio Kid Found To Have CTE.

As new research involving the dangers of American football continue to surface, companies responsible for creating the equipment football players use to protect themselves must keep up with the data and adjust their products. When they fail to do so, serious and potentially fatal brain damage can result. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert wrongful death attorney or product liability attorney at 617-787-3700.

Cody Hamblin had been playing tackle football since he was 8 years old when, while fishing with his grandpa, he suffered a seizure and fell into the water, drowning. Autopsy reports indicate the Hamblin had advanced CTE, a degenerative brain condition that results from sustaining a large number of concussions. For Hamblin’s family, the connection was clear: tackle football had led Cody to suffer multiple concussions, which led to his developing CTE.

While Hamblin’s parents feel responsible for even letting him play in the first place, they have also suggested that the companies that manufacture the helmets must take responsibility. Accordingly, Hamblin’s father has filed a lawsuit against Riddell Sports Group, who is yet to respond to the allegations. The suit alleges fraud, negligence, and wrongful death. Hamblin is being represented by Girardi/Keese, of Los Angeles California.
