What are sports and recreation accident cases?

 

A:

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.
