The family of a high school soccer player who claims she suffered a head injury in a pre-season scrimmage more than two years ago has filed a lawsuit in federal court against the coach and the school district.
The lawsuit says the girl -- who is identified only as M.U. due to her age -- collided head first with another player during the scrimmage in August, 2012. As a result, the lawsuit claims that the girl suffered a serious brain injury and continues to experience headaches, fatigue, and anxiety, affecting her performance in school and restricting her choices of colleges, reports The Inquirer.
Why does the girl's family blame her coach and his employer for the extent of the girl's injuries?
