My child suffered a head injury even though he was wearing a helmet. Should we pursue a case?

 

A:

The decision to pursue an injury lawsuit is a very important one that should be made after consulting with a lawyer. The factual and legal circumstances of each case vary and only a lawyer can advise you on how to proceed. The following answer is for information only.

Deciding Whether to Pursue a Head Injury Sports Accident Case

One of the most important factors in deciding whether to pursue an injury case is the seriousness of the injury. Generally, minor injuries will not justify the financial cost and mental stress of a lawsuit. However, head injuries often result in life-altering changes, both physical and mental. Therefore, filing a lawsuit may be necessary to protect the rights of the injured and provide financial recovery for past and future medical expenses as well as pain and suffering.

Multiple parties may bear liability in a sports accident case where a child was wearing a helmet. Any or all of the following may be potential parties:

  • helmet manufacturer,
  • helmet importer/retailer,
  • sports association,
  • school/school district,
  • sports field maintenance company, or
  • retail store where the helmet was purchased.
