Current and former NFL players sue league for workers’ comp
Numerous professional football players, both current and former, have filed suits against the NFL in order to earn workers’ compensation benefits.
The majority of these claims have been filed in the state of California, even though most of these men were employed by NFL teams that were not located in that state. The NFL, along with several franchise teams, have filed lawsuits against the men in order to have their suits litigated in the proper states.
These men are seeking compensation for different injuries they sustained while on the playing field. NFL teams do not usually pay medical expenses once the player leaves the program, so these former players must file a workers’ compensation claim in order to gain these benefits.
