How Common Are Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries can be defined as injuries that athletes incur during or participating in sporting activities. In many cases, these types of injuries are due to overworking a particular part of the body while participating in a sporting event. Every year, roughly one in every 25 people seek medical attention at least once for a sports injury. People participating in sports have a higher risk of pulling muscles, having muscle or tendon injuries, and bone fractures when compared to other people of the same age.

How is Liability Determined?
The critical issue in this personal injury case such as your sports injury accident is just how the “reasonable person” that caused the injury is expected to act in the situation that caused the injury. A person is found to be negligent when he or she fails to act like a “reasonable person”. Whether a given person has met the “reasonable person standard” is often a matter that is determined by a jury after the presentation of evidence and argument at trial. This is one of the many reasons why you should contact us immediately about your sports injury accident so we can start to investigate and develop you sports injury case.

Usually, a person who is found to be liable for your sports injury- which generally means his or her liability insurance company-must pay an injured person for
- Medical care and related expenses past and future
- Income lost because of the accident past and future
- Permanent physical disability or disfigurement caused by your sports injury accident
- Loss of family, social, and educational experiences due to your sports injury accident
- Emotional damages, such as stress, embarrassment, depression, or strains on family relationships
- Punitive Damages (In Extraordinary Cases)
- Damaged Property
You will be awarded “damages” or money intended to restore you to the position before your sports injury accident. This money is not considered income (excluding monies paid for the loss of income) and is not taxable by the state or federal government.
