Denver Firm Representing Star Wrestler Who Says He Suffered Abuse by Team Doctor at University of Michigan
DENVER (Feb. 21, 2020) – A prominent Denver law firm has begun investigations into a case against the University of Michigan athletic department involving a doctor who may have sexually abused countless student athletes.
Denver Trial Lawyers ® represents Andy Hrovat, a former Olympic and University of Michigan All-American wrestler who now lives in Cleveland.
He is the first athlete from the University of Michigan to go public with his story of abuse by team doctor Robert E. Anderson. Denver Trial Lawyers ® has interviewed and been in contact with numerous other alleged victims of the deceased doctor who worked for the athletic department between 1968-1999.
“We’re investigating cases involving inappropriate and unlawful examinations of student-athletes, with the hope that the university will take responsibility for this injustice,” said attorney Parker Stinar of Denver Trial Lawyers ®.
Any student-athletes who think they might have suffered physical or mental abuse through inappropriate, unsafe, and unlawful examinations by Dr. Robert E. Anderson during their time at the school should call (303) 647-9990 and ask to speak personally to attorneys Parker Stinar, Dan Sloane, or Michael Nimmo.
Hrovat’s four-year record at the University of Michigan was 132-39, one of the best in the school’s history. He went on to earn a silver medal in the Pan Am Games, and he competed in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He said there were other victims of the University of Michigan doctor, and above all, he wants to prevent something like this from happening again.
