The death of Ray Easterling, a former Atlanta Falcon player and lead plaintiff in the NFL concussion lawsuit, has not only saddened friends, family and fans, but may also change the state of the personal injury lawsuit filed against the football organization.
According to a Philadelphia attorney, because of Eastertling’s death, which police have stated was from a self-inflicted gun shot wound, the lawsuit may change from a personal injury case to a wrongful death lawsuit.
Sources close to Easterling in the past six months have stated that the 62-year-old was having a difficult time mentally. Sixty-one lawsuits have been filed against the NFL that allege that the league was careless and negligent when treating players with concussions and this caused the players to suffer from long-term brain damage.

A Fall River man is recovering in a hospital after he was hit in the head by a piece of concrete while driving in Madison on Tuesday.
The piece of concrete was the size of a softball, and was believed to have been knocked up by another vehicle on the same roadway. The man was driving on U.S. Highway 151 in Madison when the concrete ball broke through his windshield, and struck him in the head.
The 50-year-old suffered injuries, and was taken to a local hospital to be treated. He is currently listed in fair condition. The Department of Transportation has fixed the part in the road where the concrete was kicked up, and the Dane County sheriff’s office announced that this was not an intentional act.

A woman still does not possess a birth certificate for her premature daughter, who is in critical condition, but she does have a death certificate for the newborn, after a medical error took place in an Argentinian hospital.
The woman went into labor on April 3, and, shortly after giving birth, was told that her baby did not survive. She was overwhelmed with sadness when a death certificate was presented to her, just 20 minutes after delivering the supposed stillborn baby. Doctors placed the girl’s fragile body in a casket and took her to the morgue.
The newborn was inside the morgue for 12 hours before her parents were able to visit her to tell her goodbye. When her casket was reopened, the child’s mother thought she was going crazy when she saw her stillborn daughter breathing and making faint noises. A morgue worker confirmed that the child was indeed alive, and the baby was whisked back to the hospital in hopes of recovery.
An investigation into this case has been started, and until answers are discovered, five different medical professionals have been placed on suspension.

In certain BMW models, connector cables attached to a trunk battery could have potentially been wired wrong. This mechanical error has caused BMW to announce an international recall of the defective vehicles.
In the United States, 367,000 vehicles are being recalled, with 39,000 2010 5 Series sedans making up a large part. If the battery connectors become loose in the vehicle, they could create friction and overheat. In one reported case in the United States, a fire started due to this problem.
No injuries have currently been reported, but BMW has advised owners of these vehicles to park their cars outside until they are able to have the problem fixed. All BMW dealers will be equipped to handle these repairs starting at the beginning of April, and no charge will be issued to owners.
