Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Who is eligible to participate in this lawsuit?
    Any current or former member of the NFL and their spouses.

  2. What if I have never been diagnosed with a concussion?
    You may still participate in this lawsuit. You do not need to be diagnosed with a concussion or repetitive head trauma, or have been diagnosed with an injury in order to become part of the suit. You just have to have played in the NFL.

  3. How much does it cost to join the lawsuit?
    Joining this lawsuit will cost you NOTHING. We get paid on a contingency-fee basis. That means if we get you a recovery we take a percentage. If we don’t get you a recovery, YOU DON’T OWE US A DIME!

  4. Is it too late to join?
    No. The statute of limitations is the term used to describe the last day which you have to bring a claim. The statute of limitations has not yet expired for the NFL concussion claims. However, once the statute of limitations expires, you will forever be barred from bringing a claim. ACT NOW TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS!

  5. How much money can I expect to make if I participate in this lawsuit?
    The short answer is: nobody knows. NFL concussion cases are too new to speculate about what sort of awards juries might return. However, we only get paid if you get paid. If we are unable to get you a recovery, you don’t owe us anything.

  6. How many players/spouses have signed up to participate in a concussion claim against the NFL?
    To date, over 1,000 players and/or their spouses have signed up to participate. Some of those include: Seth Joyner, Jeremiah Trotter, John Brodie, Bob Landsee, Steve Everitt, Andy Harmon, Glen Steele, Michael Stonebreaker, Dave Alexander, Gary Ellerson, William Crizzell, Richard Bielski, Leo Goeas, Jerry Holmes, Leroy Kelly, Alex Karras, Herb Adderley, Sean Salisbury, John Arnett, George Rodgers, Carl Hairston, Keith Byars, and too many others to name here.

  7. How do I know if I suffer from injuries related to head impacts I received while I was in the NFL?
    Some common symptoms include (but are not limited to): short term memory loss, headaches, anxiety, mood swings, changes in personality, depression, and sleep problems.

  8. What if I already filed a workers compensation claim?
    This NFL lawsuit is completely separate and distinct from any workers compensation claims, and players have a right to file both claims.

  9. What is the basis of this NFL concussion lawsuit?
    The complaint alleges that despite clear medical evidence that on-field concussions led directly to brain injuries with tragic results for NFL players, the NFL failed to inform its players and former players of the true risks associated with such head trauma. Even worse, the NFL purposefully misrepresented and/or concealed medical evidence on that issue. The complaint alleges fraud and negligence against the NFL and accuses the league of hiding medical evidence about the risks of concussions and failing to warn players they risked permanent brain injury if they returned to pay too soon after they had sustained a concussion.

  10. What if I am already signed up with an attorney to represent me in my NFL concussion claim?
    Then you have already taken steps to secure your rights. You should not sign up with more than one attorney. If you are happy with your current legal representation, we do not encourage you to move from one firm to another.
