NFL: Patriots Sued $10 Million Over Man's 2010 Death

Aug 21 2013, 10:41pm CDT | by

A Massachusetts woman filed a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against the New England Patriots on Monday, three years after her husband died in Gillette Stadium after he suffered a heart attack.

The New England Patriots are being sued $10 million.

More specifically, it is a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Kimberly Chartier whose husband, Jeffrey, died after suffering a heart attack in Gillette Stadium in 2010, per the Associated Press via the Portland Press Herald.   

Jeffrey Chartier was 40 years old when he confronted a Gillette Stadium security guard. Chartier's is six-year-old son Tedy was invited onto the field approximately an hour and a half before the game by two NFL officials. However, the guard insisted he did not have the proper credentials.

After the 15-minute confrontation, Chartier went back to his seat and then slumped over. He was unable to respond and was eventually taken to a local hospital, where he died.  

The lawsuit indicates the cause of death as cardiac arrest which stemmed from agitation and stress. 

"Jeff Chartier died as a result of cardiac arrest that was precipitated by agitation and stress caused by an interaction with a security guard at Gillette Stadium who inappropriately and unnecessarily confronted Jeff Chartier and his son Tedy in a harsh, unprofessional, confrontational, disrespectful and antagonistic manner."

According to the FindLaw.com website, the lawsuit is still valid even though the incident occurred in 2010 because "it is within Massachusetts three-year limit on civil suits for personal injury."

Furthermore, a crucial point of analysis would be "whether the defendants' actions or inaction could have foreseeably caused her husband to suffer a heart attack," per the website.

The New England Sports Network affirms the defendants in this case are the guard, the security company and the stadium operators. The guard was identifed as Arthur Sherman. 

Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports notes Chartier had been a ten-year season ticket holder of the Patriots at the time of his death. He named his son after former New England linebacker Tedy Bruschi

Edholm also adds the Patriots paid tribute to Chartier two weeks later by holding a moment of silence at their next home game. They also donated a Tom Brady jersey for auction to raise funds for his family
