Dave Duerson’s family sues NFL

Wrongful Death Attorney Chicago

CHICAGO — The family of former Chicago Bears player has filed a wrongful death suit against the NFL over his suicide.

The suit was filed Thursday in Chicago on behalf of Duerson’s children. Duerson died on Feb. 17, 2011, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

The lawsuit accuses the NFL of negligently causing the brain damage that led Duerson to take his own life at the age of 50 by not warning him of the negative effects of concussions. The lawsuit says Boston University experts have determined that Duerson was suffering from advanced brain damage when he died.

The NFL said in a statement that it hasn’t seen the lawsuit and its attorneys haven’t reviewed it.
