Dan Marino Joins Concussion Lawsuit Against NFL

One of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the NFL has joined a lawsuit against the league that is centered around concussions, according to CNN. Former Miami Dolphin great Dan Marino has joined the lawsuit, which was filed in Philadelphia last week.

Marino played 17 seasons for the Dolphins and is a member of the Hall of Fame. He joined 14 other former players who filed a civil lawsuit in federal court. The lawsuit claims that the league knew for years that there was a link between long-term health issues and concussions.

The lawsuit is asking for monetary damages that would be determined by a jury trial. The lawsuit also asks for medical monitoring for the former players of the league.

As part of the lawsuit, each player had to submit a short-form complaint that included standard language saying they suffer from brain injuries and have symptoms that developed over time.

The lawsuit does not specify the injuries suffered by Marino and the NFL did not comment on the litigation. At one point in his career, Marino started 99 consecutive games at quarterback. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2005.

Some of the other former players include Anthony Grant, Ethan Johnson, Richard Bishop, Chris Dugan, LaCurtis Jones, Mark Green, Erik Affholter, John Huddleston, Bruce Clark, Toddrick McIntosh, Dwight Wheeler, Moses Moreno, Peter Manning and Jackie Wallace.

A federal judge did not approve a proposed $760 million settlement back in January from claims that came from concussions suffered by NFL players. The judge said that he did not think the settlement included enough money. There are an estimated 20,000 class members that the settlement would cover for 65 years. The issues covered include dementia, moderate dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotropic lateral sclerosis and/or death with a postmortem diagnosis of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a brain disorder.
