Rams To Pay Reggie Bush $12.5M For 2015 Injury
the were ordered to pay former NFL running back Reggie Bush $12.45 million in damages
Bush, who was playing for the San Francisco 49ers at the time, slipped on some concrete while he was running out of bounds during a punt return in a game at the Edward Jones Dome on Nov. 1, 2015.
Bush suffered a season-ending torn lateral meniscus.
“I’m very happy with the verdict,” Bush, who filed the suit back in 2016, told the Post-Dispatch. “The people spoke and decided very fairly.”
In the suit, Bush alleged that and the public stadium authorities allowed “a dangerous condition to exist at the Dome” calling the area where he fell “a concrete ring of death.”
The Rams were ordered on Tuesday to pay Bush, 33, $4.95 million in compensatory damages and $7.5 million in punitive damages.
Attorneys for the Rams said they plan to file a motion for a new trial.
Bush is now working as an analyst for the NFL Network.
