Jennifer Bradley (plaintiff) was a junior year student athlete at the University in Washington, D.C. Bradley played field hockey for the university, and in September 2011, she was hit on the head during a field hockey game between the university and Richmond University. After that hit, she began experiencing symptoms of a concussion, but continued to play hockey in practice and games. The plaintiff was not advised to sit out of practices and games, despite her symptoms persisting and a diagnosis of a concussion being confirmed. The plaintiff claimed the injury caused harm to her physical, emotional, and mental state. Paying monetary damages and the staff failing to appropriately treat her condition led to this situation. The plaintiff filed actions against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the Patriot League, the University, the Medicine Center, David L. Higgins, and Aaron Williams.
