NFL Football Concussions Injury Lawyer
For decades, players in the NFL were exposed to brain-altering concussions that put them at risk for serious cognitive and mental issues. Poorly designed helmets and a failure by the NFL to protect and warn players of the dangers of concussions brought about a class action lawsuit for damages. It is expected that over $1 billion will be paid to former players for concussion injuries.
The NFL concussion class action lawsuit was initiated by 4,500 former NFL players or family members in 2012. The claim was that unsafe helmets and policies resulted in long-term injuries from concussions. These injuries include CTE, mood swings, blurred vision, headaches, ALS and insomnia. There have been links to suicide and violence to others, all alleged to be caused by brain injuries from repeated concussions while playing in the NFL. The class action lawsuit was won in 2013 and by July 2018, over $500 million had been paid out in settlements to players and their families, but many more players are eligible.
