Lawsuit Against NFL to Change Due to Easterling’s Death

Following the suicide of former Atlanta Falcons safety Ray Easterling, one of the more than five dozen personal injury lawsuits against the NFL will be changed to wrongful death. Easterling was a part of one of the first lawsuits filed against the league.

Easterling, 62, was found dead last Thursday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his Virginia home. Prior to his death, friends and family say his memory had begun to deteriorate.

More than 1,260 former NFL players are represented in the 61 lawsuits against the league. They accuse of NFL of carelessness, negligence, intentional misconduct, and concealing information regarding the long-term damage of concussions.
