Brain injuries and concussions can be caused in many ways. There may be no visible sign of trauma, but the symptoms will be evident.

At the law office of Bentley & More LLP, our Irvine concussion lawyers work with former and current professional athletes from across the nation to pursue workers’ compensation claims in California. Attorney Keith More is an unflinching advocate for workers’ rights, including especially professional athletes who are asked to go physically above and beyond every day. You get the experience of a professional who is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, has been recognized by California Super Lawyers, and who is a two-time Orange County Workers’ Compensation Trial Lawyer of the Year.

We fight to help current and former professional athletes exercise those rights to deal with the after effects of concussions.
