NFL Concussion Lawsuits

Multiple lawsuits have been filed against the NFL, alleging the organization purposely concealed medical evidence about the risk of concussions. Players allege they suffered behavior changes, memory loss and loss of cognitive skills following repetitive brain injuries. Other players and their family members allege they developed chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease that has been linked to some players' suicides.

Players argue they should have been warned about the risk of permanent damage if they returned to play too soon after sustaining a concussion and allege the NFL told them that concussions did not pose serious risks. Approximately 2,400 retired players are now involved in the lawsuits, alleging the NFL failed to act on information it had about the risks to players.
