As An Athlete, You Can Recover Compensation For Workplace Injuries
An injury of any kind can have an impact on all areas of your life. The Pellegrino Law Firm P.C. represents individuals and athletes throughout Connecticut. We can help you understand your options. Our goal is to help you recover the damages you are entitled to.
What Are My Rights?
We have worked with people who play a variety of sports professionally, including hockey, lacrosse, basketball, XFL football, minor league baseball and soccer. This area of the law is unlike many others. These cases can get tremendously complex depending on your specific team’s workers’ compensation or insurance policy. For example, is this an acute or a cumulative trauma injury? It all depends on the specifics of your case. As your legal advocate, we will pay attention to the details.
Your job is to be active. When you get hurt, you may be unsure how to move forward. When and how you got hurt is the most crucial part of any injury claim. Our job is to build the strongest case on your behalf. We do this by providing images, medical records and statements from witnesses. You then can be entitled to payment for your medical expenses and lost wages. We know how to scrutinize contracts, work with the necessary doctors and experts and navigate the complexities of the legal system.
