NFL Player Receives Award in Brain Concussion Class Action Lawsuit

We currently represent hundreds of retired NFL football players in the NFL Brain Concussion Lawsuit which is pending in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. We are pleased to announce that the Claims Commission overseeing the settlement of the class action has notified us that one of our players has received the first monetary award in the class action for the players we represent. According to Russ Berkowitz, “this historic award and the many other player awards we expect to follow represents the National Football League’s acknowledgment of their longstanding fraudulent concealment of the serious medical effects of brain concussions sustained during professional football games.” The thousands of retired players who now unfortunately live with permanent and debilitating cognitive impairments such as Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and ALS will finally receive the compensation they deserve and assist the players and their families as they try to manage their lives despite their significant disabilities.

We will continue to update our postings with details of the amount of this award and other players awards shortly.
