NHL Litigation: Boogaard, Montador, Ludzik and CTE Class-Action Litigation
Corboy & Demetrio is currently representing the family of Derek Boogaard in a wrongful death lawsuit against the National Hockey League, accusing it of negligently causing the young hockey "enforcer's
death by supplying him with excessive amounts of painkillers during his career and failing in its attempt to curb and cure his resulting addiction.
Corboy & Demetrio was appointed to the Plaintiff's Executive Committee by U.S. District Court Judge Susan Richard Nelson in Minnesota, which is overseeing individual lawsuits against the National Hockey League relating to head injuries.
Additionally, the firm represents the Estate of Steve Montador, the NHL player who died at the age of 35 after suffering multiple concussions and the effects of CTE, as well as Steve Ludzik, who played for the Chicago Blackhawks for eight seasons and coached the Tampa Bay Lightning, claiming repeated concussive injuries resulted in Parkinson’s disease.
