FOXBORO, Mass.—The family of Junior Seau has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the National Football League.

The suit claims Seau’s suicide last May was the result of brain disease caused by violent hits he sustained while playing football.

After his death, the 43-year-old was diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy from multiple hits to the head.

The family accuses the NFL of deliberately ignoring and concealing evidence of the risks associated with traumatic brain injuries.
