Workers’ Compensation Lawyers for Professional Athletes
From Pittsburgh Steelers to Pittsburgh steelworkers
When professional athletes get injured in Pittsburgh, our workers' compensation attorneys represent them
It may come as a surprise, but professional athletes—from Pittsburgh Steelers linemen to the “Baby” Penguins in Wilkes-Barre—are protected under Workers’ Compensation laws. Abes Baumann workers' compensation attorneys have been representing professional athletes in Pennsylvania for more than 30 years. We have experience defending some of the toughest men against some of the toughest insurance companies.
If a professional athlete has been injured on Heinz Field, in training, on the practice field, or in the weight room, he’s been hurt at work and deserves to be protected under Workers’ Compensation laws. In fact, many of the insurance companies that insure sports teams will try to avoid paying Workers’ Compensation. Many athletes who play for minor league teams are working second jobs. An injury on the field can stop them from getting their second income as well. It’s not so different from the needs of many other hardworking western Pennsylvanians.
Let us put our experience to work for you
We are the only law firm in Pittsburgh that regularly represents injured athletes. We are on the Workers’ Compensation Panels of the Players’ Associations of all of Pittsburgh’s major teams.
