When do sports injuries become actionable?
There’s a significant difference between getting injured while running bases, and getting injured when brand new baseball cleats fall apart while on the base paths. If a runner fails to stretch, then tears their anterior crucial ligament (ACL), the injury is not litigable. However, if poorly crafted baseball cleats caused someone to sustain injury, there’s cause for action. The difference here is who’s negligent.
Training is another area where sports injuries are prevalent. When quality of training declines, or is nonexistent, athletes are expected to participate with little knowledge of equipment or specific actions they’re supposed to take while playing the sport. Should they become injured, trainers can be held liable for putting players in position to injure themselves.
Sports equipment can also cause serious injuries when not manufactured properly. Most equipment is tested like other products put on retail shelves, although some bad equipment leaks into sporting goods stores across the nation. Once an athlete purchases these products, and is injured while using them, we’re the sports injury attorney Farmington competitors retain to get compensation for their injuries.
Personal injuries resulting from poor training or poor sports equipment may be settled out of court to avoid public embarrassment to wrongdoers, although our law firm has taken cases to court based on facts and extent of injuries. Each case is treated individually, and undergoes the deep investigative process victims expect from their attorney.
