Millions of athletes, from young children to professionals, experience sports-related injuries each year in the United States. Many of them suffer serious injuries and even death. While generally accidental, these injuries sometimes are cause by negligence and thus warrant legal action.
When children are involved, any number of circumstances can lead to a sports injury. A football injury may be caused by a coach who failed to follow proper safety procedures during practice, or gave his players improper gear (such as a defective helmet). Other causes might be insufficient supervision, poor training, inadequate medical care, or unsafe premises such as fields, rinks or courts. Other cases may involve an injury or accident that wasn’t the fault of the sports organization at all.
Even when parents sign liability release forms with schools, municipalities and businesses, there can be exceptions if an injury results because of negligence.
Has your child suffered a severe personal injury or wrongful death while involved in an organized sport?
