KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-11:30 a.m.

This past week, Philadelphia federal judge Anita Brody approved a settlement agreement to provide benefits to thousands of NFL retired players, who suffered serious medical problems from concussions sustained while playing football.

Although the agreement could cost the NFL a billion dollars – over 65-years – or, about $190,000 per player – the appeals process could take years, and many of the players could die, before receiving any money.

We’ll talk with Jason Luckasevic, Esq. – Shareholder with Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. in Pittsburgh – who represented 75-NFL players, in a 2011 lawsuit against the NFL – and James (“Jack”) A. Wilberger, Jr., M.D. – former chairman of the neurosurgery department at Allegheny General Hospital – for the latest developments in this issue, and medical findings on concussions caused by participating in athletics.
