Former NFL Players File Suit over Concussions

Published on Aug 25, 2011 at 3:03 pm in Brain Injuries.

Former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon and six other former players have filed a lawsuit against the National Football League over concussions suffered in game play. The suit claims the league “instructed players to hit with their heads, failed to properly treat them for concussions and concealed links between football and severe brain injuries for decades.” The class-action lawsuit said NFL officials had knowledge about the negative effects of concussions on players for decades, but only revealed that information last year.
