Pro Athlete Injury Compensation Lawyers – Palm Beach County

Pro Athlete Injury Compensation Lawyers – Palm Beach CountyWhen professional and semi-professional athletes get hurt on the job, our pro athlete injury compensation lawyers Palm Beach County residents trust are here to help. Many professional and semi-professional athletes are unaware that they are eligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits in the event that they suffer injury while on the job. This is true regardless of the sport in which they specialize, the type of injury sustained, and whether their actions contributed to the causation of the injury or injuries in question. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. It allows for claims based on accidents (training injuries, on-field collisions, traumatic brain injuries, etc.) as well as injuries caused by repetitive trauma. Under certain circumstances, work activities that exacerbate a pre-existing injury may also lead to legitimate grounds upon which athletes can file workers’ compensation claims successfully.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits for Pro and Semi-Pro Athletes

Fans and spectators usually only get to see their favorite athletes “in action” when it’s time to perform. Whether that performance is a team-based game (baseball, lacrosse, basketball, football, soccer, hockey, etc.) or a solo attempt at greatness (surfing, tennis, running, golf, etc.), athletes give their all when the pressure is on. Those efforts can understandably lead to injury, which is a reality that occurs at particularly high rates in contact sports. However, any athlete can also be injured during practice, training, and other activities that are work-related. Our firm’s experienced Palm Beach County pro athlete injury compensation lawyers assist athletes with their workers’ compensation claims, regardless of when the injuries in question occurred and what type of injuries occurred.

Technically, you can submit a workers’ compensation benefits claim without an attorney’s assistance. However, it is advisable to work with an attorney in the wake of an injury for two primary reasons. One, insurance providers are businesses interested in protecting their bottom line. We work hard to ensure that our clients receive the maximum amount of compensation they’re owed, even when insurance adjusters initially offer inadequate settlements. Two, we handle the legal heavy lifting so that you can focus on your recovery and “getting back in the game.”

Legal Assistance Is Available

If you were recently injured while engaging in work-related activities for your professional or semi-professional athletic occupation, please connect with the experienced Florida legal team at The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt today. Due to recent changes in workers’ compensation laws in the Sunshine State, chances are that if your team is based in Florida, you’ll have to file for workers’ compensation benefits here as opposed to another state, even if you were injured while traveling out-of-state for work. Our experienced Palm Beach County pro athlete injury compensation lawyers can help you to clarify your legal options and work to ensure that you receive the maximum benefit award you’re entitled to; we look forward to speaking with you.

Contact us today for a free consultation so we can discuss your situtaion.  It is not only important to talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer when you have been hurt on the job, it is also the best way to make sure that you receive proper medical services and lost wages you are entitled to under the law. After all, the Workers’ Compensation law was created to protect you – the employee.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
