Wrongful death case filed for Easterling’s suicide

Posted on April 27th, 2012 No Comments

One of the 61 personal injury lawsuits against the NFL will be changed to a wrongful death case following the suicide of Ray Easterling. Easterling played for the Atlanta Falcons from 1972 to 1979. He was among the first to file a concussion lawsuit against the league.

Easterling, 62, was found dead last Thursday in his Richmond, Virginia home of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Six months prior to his death, friends and family say his memory was noticeably beginning to deteriorate.

The dozens of lawsuits against the NFL represent more than 1,260 former players who claim they have suffered long-term damage from the concussions they sustained while playing professionally. They accuse the NFL of negligence, carelessness, concealment of information, and intentional misconduct.
