MANASQUAN, N.J., Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fair Rate Funding, a leader in NFL concussion lawsuit funding, is currently processing dozens of applications for NFL settlement funding for former football players who qualify under the NFL settlement.
In 2011, former Atlanta Falcons safety, Ray Easterling, filed suit against the NFL claiming the league engaged in a concerted effort of deception and denial with regard to the long term health effects of concussions occurring throughout the league. 4,500 other players would eventually join the claim thereby bringing a national focus on the effects of brain trauma.
In August, 2013, the NFL agreed to pay $765 million in settlement. The amount was later increased to $1 billion.
The settlement was approved in April 2016 but a petition to the Supreme Court of the United States was filed, marking another delay in the compensation for victims. Earlier this month, the Courts refused to hear the case and the matter of distributing the settlement proceeds is proceeding.
