National Football League Players Concussion Injury Litigation
We are suffering. We face a crisis and it is here and it is now. Players are dying, losing their homes, and struggling to keep their families together. While we struggle, the settlement goes nowhere.
In the year since the settlement claims process began, only 6 of 1108 Level 1.5 and 2.0 claims have been paid. This is less than .6% in a year. This is unjustifiable and brutal.
The tactics of the NFL and Brown Greer have made the claims process impossible. Almost all Level 1.5 and 2.0 claims have received deficiencies and it appears as if the same will be true for audits.
While Brown Greer appears to have massive problems processing claims to completion, it appears to have no problem in efficiently denying claims. In the last year, 105 Level 1.5 and 2.0 claims have been denied, which means that 17.5 claims have been denied for every claim paid. HOW CAN THIS BE?
Any questions as to clear tactics of the NFL and Brown Greer is put to rest by the fact that even the Level 1.5 and 2.0 claims qualified by the NFL approved doctors remain unpaid. Of the 1108 claims filed, approximately 190 were qualified by NFL approved doctors. Still only 6 have been paid! HOW CAN ALL THE MAF CLAIMS BE AUDITED…WHAT IS GOING ON?
We may not understand every argument. We do understand that we have been diagnosed and are not getting paid as promised. We do understand that we are the victims of fraud, and being victimized again in the claims process. All of the doctors who diagnosed the 1108 players are not lying. We have suffered traumatically induced brain injuries ... we are not stupid.
We request that outstanding issues, whether they be interpretation issues, fee issues or other stuff be resolved now. We request that Brown Greer be ordered to process our 1108 dementia claims as a neutral party in a timely manner, or that a competent and neutral claims administrator be appointed. The absurd arguments of growing pains and fraud protection just aren't legitimate in the face of the mass crisis we face. How many players will have to die while we wait for the promises made in 2014 to be fulfilled?
We request your help.
