No matter whether you're professionally playing on a team or just pursuing outdoor activities, most everyone enjoys some athletic pursuits from time to time. These are not completely safe ventures, however, and it is known that those who choose to consent to a given amount of danger. For example, in a wrestling match, you are consenting to the fact that you could sustain injuries. Does this mean that if you were injured while playing sports that you cannot receive compensation? Not at all!
Sports-related injuries are painful and can have a serious impact on your life. If you sustained this injury because you were using defective equipment or if you had a referee that was negligent in monitoring the behavior of all players, you could pursue a
personal injury claim. Other instances that could give you grounds to file a claim include, but are not limited to, the following:
- An inadequate amount of supervision;
- Incorrect directions given by a trainer;
- Reckless and dangerous conduct; and
- Poorly maintained field and equipment
