Suffered From A Concussion While In The NFL?
Are You A Retired NFL Player?
If you played for the NFL you may be entitled to substantial compensation: up to $5 million for the most serious injuries. This money has been made available through a settlement fund established because of the serious risks caused by repetitive concussions and the NFL’s prior knowledge of these risks.
You can participate in the NFL concussion settlement even if you are not suffering from memory loss or other concussion symptoms right now.

The registration and subsequent follow-ups involved with filing an NFL concussion settlement claim is very complicated.
If you do not file your claim properly you may lose your right to ever receive financial compensation from the NFL, even if you develop concussion symptoms in the future.
It is also critical that you receive neurological testing from a quality, independent doctor. This means a doctor who is not working for the NFL. There is a limited amount of time to get this independent testing before new participants in this settlement will have to undergo testing by NFL-approved doctors.
