Professional athletes must perform at a very high level of physical capacity on a near-daily basis. Injury can plague professional athletes, costing them salary and even their careers on top of medical costs, therapy and potential long-term care for debilitating conditions.
At Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, we have been helping people throughout Pennsylvania obtain the workers’ compensation they deserve since 1936. Professional athletes deserve compensation for sports injuries, too.
Help For Those Without A Collective Bargaining Agreement
We can pursue workers’ compensation benefits for professional athletes as long as they are not bound by a collective bargaining agreement. Our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of workers. Our Philadelphia-based law firm has represented tens of thousands of people and won tens of millions of dollars in awards for clients in a wide variety of industries, including professional sports.
For Professional Athletes, Injury Can End A Career
We fight for the rights of professional athletes injured in the NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB, AHL, AFL, MLS, MLL, NLL, minor leagues and several other sports. Whether you were injured during a game, practice or a workout, we can help you. As an athlete, your office is not just one physical location. If your injury is work-related, we can fight for the recovery you deserve, whether temporary or long term.
Some Injuries Don’t Appear Until Years Down The Road
Employees in many occupations, including professional athletes, might not experience noticeable symptoms of an injury or condition until it is aggravated away from the “office.” Severely debilitating injuries and those that impact quality of life might not begin to affect you until many years later. Multiple concussions, knee surgeries, shoulder surgeries, back conditions, arthritis, repetitive stress, muscle strains, emotional stress and other traumatic or overuse injuries can cause pain and suffering years after your career has ended, but the effects could still be a direct result of your days as a professional. We can fully evaluate your case and your medical history, and we can help you file a valid claim for compensation.
