Lifelong Medical Care for Former Redskins Player with Shoulder Injury
Benjamin Boscolo successfully represented a former Washington Redskins wide receiver. On June 16, 2010, when a jury found that the professional football franchise was responsible for providing medical care for the player’s left shoulder injury sustained when he landed on his left shoulder during a game at FedEx Field in December 2003. Counsel for the Redskins argued employment as a professional football player was hazardous, and the injuries suffered by the player could not be accidental. In rejecting this argument, the jury found the client’s shoulder injury was neither expected nor intended by him when it occurred. As a result, the Redskins will have to provide medical care for the player’s shoulder injury for the rest of his life.
