Florida Workers Compensation Law To Affect Athletes

In case you did not know, I have been blogging at since September 2010 (albeit not nearly as regularly as I post here at Sports Agent Blog).  While I am very much intrigued and interested in the sports agent profession, I have found myself itching to write about some of the hottest topics in Sports Law, Entertainment Law, Intellectual Property Law, and other legal disciplines. provides me that platform.

Over the weekend, I posted an article titled, “Florida Professional Athletes Affected By New Workers Compensation Law.”  I figure it is also something many of the readers of this site would enjoy reading.  Also, I changed the layout of over the weekend to somewhat mimic Sports Agent Blog.  I hope you enjoy the post and continue to go back to in addition to Sports Agent Blog!

 As an agent we want the best options for our clients to recover damages or for lost wages that occur because of an incident during the course of employment. This is similar to forum shopping, but to represent your clients and have their best interests at heart you have to take advantage of the tools at your disposal.
