What are sports and recreation accident cases?



Sports and recreation cases include instances in which the actual participant in the athletic event is injured.  These instances can arise from the following:

  • equipment failures,
  • improper or unsafe facilities,
  • improper supervision of an event, and
  • a gross mismatch.

I want to clarify the above bullet on "gross mismatch" because you may not know what that means. It involves a coach matching the classic 95 lb. freshman  against a 250 lb. senior which results in serious injury to the smaller player.  Those types of mismatches shouldn't happen.

If you or your child was injured in a sports and recreation accident case and would like to know whether there is a case, feel free to contact me.  I would be more than happy to discuss the details of the case with you.  You can also contact our New Jersey and Pennsylvania sports and recreation accident lawyers at 877.944.8396.
