Who is Responsible for Sports Accidents?
Accidents don’t just happen: they occur because of a failure to properly follow the safety rules. Any individual or business who organizes sports activities can become responsible if their negligence caused injuries. Examples of those who could be held accountable include:
- Schools or sports programs when the staff is negligent in supervising players or providing safety gear.
- Stadium owners and operators when fans get hurt due to negligent security or problems with stadium maintenance.
- Manufacturers of safety equipment when their gear is defective.
Recently, the National Football League has been facing legal action for failure to adequately inform players of the long-term risks of head injuries. Any sporting program that does not provide information to its players or patrons could potentially be held liable for resulting losses. The same goes for any program which doesn’t take any reasonable steps to ensure the environment is safe.
What Types of Compensation Can I Receive for Sports-Related Injuries?
If you experienced a sports-related injury due to the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else, you should be entitled to compensation for economic and non-financial damages.
At the Loewy Law Firm, a sports accident lawyer will help you prove the extent of the damages. Most injuries have long-term costs associated with them, including the risk of serious health problems down the line. We’ll assist you in making a case to recover compensation for medical costs, wage losses, emotional stress, and other damages you have endured or will experience in the future.
