New York’s Attorney General Tells Consumers Not to Fall for Football Helmet Manufacturers’ Claims of Reducing the Risk of Concussion; Parker Waichman LLP Responds
Date:9/6/2013

d may void NOCSAE certification.”

“We applaud the attorney general’s efforts to focus the spotlight on football helmet safety for children,” said Parker Waichman LLP. “If a company is on the market using advertising or promotional activity to tout claims regarding football helmets with ‘anti-concussive’ or ‘concussion-proof’ properties, we would certainly want to be the first to know about them, as such claims would be ‘misleading and even dangerous,’ to use the attorney general’s words, which we agree with.”

The attorney general also provided in his press release this handy list of important things to know about concussions:

  • Players, parents and coaches must be trained to see the symptoms and risks of concussion.
  • It is extremely important to recognize the signs of concussion and remove the player immediately from the game.
  • New York State law requires that players be removed from play until they are asymptomatic for a minimum of 24 hours and have written approval from their physician to return to play.
  • The number of concussions can be significantly reduced with modifications to practice format – such as learning to avoid head-on “collisions” on the field of play.
  • Reducing the number of hits is instrumental to reducing the risk of concussion because of the cumulative risk from repeated hits. Limit the amount of contact in practice and forbid drills that involve full-speed, head-on blocking and tackling that begins with players lined up more than three yards apart.
  • Players need to be trained to focus on techniques that minimize head-to-head hits. Coaches and referees must strictly enforce penalties against such behavior.

If you purchased a football helmet, bicycle helmet, motorcycle helmet or another type of helmet based on claims that it would lessen your risk of getting a concussion, you may have valuable legal rights. Parker Waichman
