As a result of suffering a disabling job-related injury nearly 10 years ago, Brent Rasmussen says, his life “changed for the better.”

With help from The Hartford, Brent now has both a new vocation and a new avocation. He runs his own mortgage brokerage firm in Omaha, Nebraska. A Paralympic athlete, he is captain of the U.S. Men’s Sit Volleyball team and a Paralympic spokesperson for The Hartford, a founding sponsor of the U.S. Paralympic Team. In between, he finds time to serve several nonprofit organizations and is a motivational speaker.

It started with help from The Hartford, his Workers Compensation insurer shortly after his accident. “Workers Compensation was there for me and The Hartford was there for me when I needed them.”
