Children can benefit in many ways by playing sports. They can become physically fit, engage in teamwork, develop personal satisfaction and make friends. But when children are inadequately coached or pushed too hard, they could suffer serious injuries.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission compiled the following statistics in 2008 that may shed light on your child's risk for a kid's sports injury:
 

  • football caused 1,024,022 kids to seek treatment for injuries;
  • soccer caused 368,726 injuries;
  • cheerleading caused 75,307 injuries; and
  • gymnastics caused 67,542 injuries.  


If your child has suffered a serious injury in a sporting event in New Jersey, you should consult with a New Jersey sports injury lawyer. If it can be determined that your child's coach or referee was negligent, you might be able to hold them accountable in a personal injury claim. The organization that employs them might also be liable for your child's injuries. 

To help your lawyer prepare a strong case, be sure to seek medical treatment for your child and keep all doctors' appointments and physical therapy sessions, if required. Your lawyer will gather evidence, interview witnesses and make sure that your child's legal rights are protected.
