• Seau suit merged with Pa. concussion case

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Apr 2, 2013
    Both Seau’s children and parents filed suit earlier this year in California. Seau took his own life last May. He was 43. Wrongful-death lawsuits filed by the children and the parents of the late Junior Seau have been consolidated into the master suit of concussion litigation the NFL and other defendants face in federal court in Pennsylvania, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. In January, ABC and ESPN reported that a study of Seau’s brain by researchers at the National Institutes of Health suggested the late NFL star had chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a brain condition linked to head trauma over a series of time. Nearly 4,000 former players have filed concussion-related lawsuits, accusing the NFL of hiding the risks of concussions and head injuries and glorifying violence on the field.
