NHL CTE Litigation Explained

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is s caused by repeated head impacts over a number of years, or chronic traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Over time, athletes who participate in high impact sports are particularly at risk of developing CTE. The National Hockey League (NHL) is facing criticism and lawsuits related to the League’s complicated relationship with concussions and CTE. Beasley Allen lawyer Mike Andrews discussed with Ringler Radio the national litigation filed in 2013 against the NHL by former hockey players. The League has taken some steps to reduce injury risk, yet its Commissioner Gary Bettman continues denying any relationship between CTE and brain injuries suffered by its players.
