New York City Sports Injuries Attorneys

Generally, when an individual participates in a sport or recreational activity, he or she assumes all of the inherent risks involved. However, there are cases in which sport injuries result from the negligence of another party, such as negligent supervision or inadequate sporting equipment. If you or your child suffered a sports injury, you may have a personal injury claim.

Proving Fault in Sport Injury Accident Claims

Every sport injury claim is fact-specific. When you select our law firm, we will conduct a thorough investigation to understand if the cause of the accident was more than just the inherent risk of the sport. We can review marketing materials, contracts, waivers, and other relevant documents to understand if the facility or sports complex was responsible to provide proper supervision but failed properly train new hires or hired inexperienced individuals.

We can also consult engineers or product design experts to find out if defective sporting equipment led to the accident. We will evaluate every angle possible to identify all potential liability factors.
