National Football League Concussion Settlement Affirmed

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed the National Football League (N.F.L.) settlement that provides for payment to potentially thousands of players, up to $5 million, for hiding the dangers of repetitive head injury. Some players had contended that the settlement would not take care of players who develop neurological problems over time.

The settlement will provide almost $1 billion to retired players. The Court found that the settlement was fair and reasonable. 8,000 retired players have tried to register for benefits even though the claims process has not opened yet. In the deal the N.F.L. admitted no fault.
