Personal Injury: Sports Accident Lawyers

Sporting Accident Lawyer

Unfortunately, sporting accidents occur every day. If you have been injured during a sporting event, contact a lawyer with experience in the area of sporting accidents in order to weigh all your options.

Cycling, playgrounds, driving all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding and hockey are some of the top sports and leisure activities that lead to injuries requiring hospital visits. The most common injuries from these sports include sprains and strains, knee injuries, achilles tendon injuries, fractured and broken bones, dislocations, and concussions.

If another person's intentional or negligent actions caused your injury, the sports injury begets a right to compensation. Although, obtaining compensation for an injury sustained while playing sports can be complicated by implied consent and waivers. Most people accept the risk of suffering minor injuries when playing sports and partaking in leisurely activities. However, serious injuries can be grounds for compensation.

Whether you have implicitly consented to the risk of your injury depends on the sport's rules and any waivers. Physical contact is part of many sports, making participation in these sports consent to possible injuries. You might not be able to seek compensation due to consenting to the possibility of the injury if the activity had a waiver specific to the types of potential injuries it covers.

If you were injured as a result of negligence on the part of a sporting facility or by an opponent or teammate while playing a sport, you could be entitled to compensation under certain circumstances. If you were injured while participating in a sport or leisure activity, contact Leone Murray LLP for a consultation to determine your rights.
