PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Two more federal lawsuits have been filed in Philadelphia blaming the NFL for concussion-related dementia and brain disease.
The latest fraud and negligence suits filed Friday also accuse the National Football League of hiding medical evidence about the risks of concussions and failing to warn players they risked permanent brain damage if they returned to play too soon after a concussion.
As many as a dozen similar lawsuits have been filed nationwide. Several have been consolidated in Philadelphia, and more could be added. The NFL has vowed to vigorously defend itself.
