NCAA Concussions: Alex Isaac
Steve W. Berman
A former student-athlete has sued his former university claiming the school failed to recognize, diagnose, test or treat him for head trauma and symptoms of a concussion, and prematurely allowed him to return to full-contact football without proper evaluations while he was still reporting symptoms, causing him to have ongoing post-concussion syndrome.
Alex Isaac was encouraged by Baldwin Wallace University-employed athletic advisors to continue playing despite his clearly reported concussion symptoms and continues to live with the effects of his concussion, according to attorneys.
The complaint, filed June 19, 2014, in the court of common pleas in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, states that Isaac on several occasions during his time as a student-athlete showed clear symptoms of a concussion. During this time, multiple members of the Baldwin Wallace medical staff permitted Isaac to continue playing, failing to adhere to NCAA and Baldwin Wallace-established protocols to prevent and treat the symptoms and effects of concussions, according to the complaint.
