Injured athletes in California impacted by ruling

When it comes to workplace injuries, workers sometimes wonder if they will able to secure compensation for their inability to continue working. Missing out on work can not only interrupt life, but lead to financial difficulties as well. As a result, it is important for those who have been injured in San Francisco to look into workers’ compensation right away.

For injured athletes, California has been particularly welcoming. However, recent legislation will make it more difficult for athletes to qualify for workers’ compensation in the state. Due to these changes in law, some are worried that the state and those who pay taxes will ultimately end up paying for the treatment these athletes need.

Among those who will be impacted by this bill are professional football players that have suffered from concussions and significant head injuries. Now, many of them will not be eligible for workers’ compensation any longer. While supporters claim that these injured athletes, including some from other states, have placed a significant amount of stress on the system, others argue that both insurers and football teams are failing to properly take care of players.

If you have been injured on the job, whether you are an athlete or an office worker, there are a number of things to take into consideration. In addition to any hospital bills, your income could be interrupted for an extended period of time. Because there are changes in legislation and questions that sometimes arise during the process of filing a workers’ comp claim, it could be helpful to talk with a legal professional.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.

    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
