A broken leg or a sprained ankle is a common and even expected sports injury. However, as parents, we do not think that our children’s lives could be in danger when they are on the football field on a hot summer day, at summer camp, or swimming at a community pool. Every year hundreds of individuals are seriously injured or even die in sports and recreational activities.
If you or a loved one has suffered a life-altering injury or died in a recreational or sports-related accident that could possibly be caused as a result of negligent supervision, negligent coaching, unsafe products or unsafe property conditions, you should consult with an attorney.
The sports injury attorneys at the Nourmand Law Firm have the experience and knowledge to aggressively represent both injured victims and family members of victims who have died in an athletic accident. We are dedicated to holding the right parties liable for your injuries and getting you the compensation that you deserve.The Common Misconception of the Assumption of Risk and Waivers of Liability
The common misconception is that victims of sports related accidents cannot hold the responsible party accountable because they signed a waiver of liability. Athletic accidents can occur in a number of different ways. As such, the waiver of liability may not apply in any one of these circumstance because of dangerous pre-existing conditions or because a party other than the one who provided the waiver may be responsible.
In some cases, sports related accidents might be caused by a defective product. In such cases, various parties may be liable for the resulting injury or death, including the manufacturer or designer of that product.Different Types of Athletic Related Accidents
Some common types of sports related accidents include:
- Drownings in swimming pools
- Drownings in boating or jet ski accidents
- Accidents at day camps
- Injuries resulting from negligent coaching or supervision
- Skiing accidents resulting from failure to warn about dangerous conditions
Regardless of what type of sports accident caused your injuries, our experienced legal team can help you determine liability in your claim.
