Concussion Suits Against NFL Consolidated

Published on Jun 12, 2012 at 2:07 pm in Brain Injuries.

More than 80 lawsuits representing approximately 2,000 former NFL players have been consolidated into one master suit accusing the league of hiding information about the risks associated with concussions. According to the suit, the NFL knew for years about the neurological risks associated with football, but only recently implemented policies to help keep players safe. Among those in the suit is the widow of former safety Ray Easterling, who committed suicide in April and suffered from dementia, thought to have been caused by head injuries sustained during his pro career.  https://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/07/us-usa-nfl-lawsuit-idUSBRE8560TK20120607
