Sports Accidents

Sports are physical by nature, which means players may incur some minor bumps and bruises along the way. That’s why most teams and recreational groups require you to sign a waiver of liability, acknowledging that you’re aware of the potential risks associated with participation. However, that doesn’t account for the conduct of others, who can put you at greater risk for serious injury if acting negligently. Coaches, teammates, property managers and other related parties are expected to uphold responsible standards of conduct that minimize risk of player injury. Those best practices include:

It’s important that you understand your rights. Despite acknowledging personal liability when participating, if you sustain injury as a result of another person’s potentially reckless or intentional conduct, you may have the right to bring a lawsuit for damages. That includes injuries sustained while playing sports such as basketball, soccer, football, wrestling and more, as well as injuries from product defects and other factors.

If you have been injured in a recreational sporting activity due to the conduct of another party, contact the Law Office of D. Hardison Wood. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you properly evaluate the specifics of your personal injury loss, and will decide what is needed to hold the relevant parties accountable.
