Sports Injury

Sport helps build character, personality, and social skills. It teaches teamwork, trust, responsibility and keeps the body physically fit. But sport exposes us to a risk of physical injury which can result in medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, or loss of future earnings.

In most circumstances, people cannot sue for sports-related injuries that occur during the normal course of a sporting event because there is an assumption that you exposed yourself to a voluntary risk of injury from the inherent risks in the sport. However, there are situations in which you could make a claim which include:

 

  • If someone intentionally injures you (fighting, etc).
  • If someone recklessly injures you s/he may be held liable.
  • If the conduct of another participant breaches the rules (dangerous tackles, etc) and causes you to suffer injury.
  • If you were injured by sports equipment that was defectively designed or manufactured.
  • If there was inadequate supervision, advice or if the coaching staff put you in an unreasonable or dangerous situation.
  • If you are injured while you were a spectator at a sporting event.

 

It is always best to consult with an experienced specialist.
