According to Eurweb.com Junior Seau’s family isn’t satisfied with the $760 million settlement the NFL Concussion Settlement. The family has objected to the settlement, saying it fell short by not treating people with wrongful-death claims differently from those who had simply been injured. Earlier this month, the deal was rejected by federal judge Anita Brody, who stated it did not set aside enough money for the thousands of players who filed the lawsuit.
Up to to $5 million would be set aside for each former player diagnosed with a certain brain condition resulting from years of repeated hits to the head in NFL games and practices, per the proposed settlement. Attorneys for the Seau family dispute settlement, saying that a minimal payment totaling a few thousand dollars would be offered to family members of retired or deceased NFL players through the proposed settlement.
