Delray Beach Sports Injury Attorney

LAW FIRM FOR Sports Injuries

Sports injury statistics are staggering. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, U.S. kids and teens ages 14 and under account for about 3.5 million injuries each year. Almost a quarter of these lead to hospitalization. Kids aren’t the only ones getting injured from sports, either. Males and young adults are the most common demographic, but sports injuries span across all ages. Our sports injury lawyers work with children, adults, amateur athletes, and professional athletes. Fortunately, death isn’t often involved in sports injuries. However, when it is, it’s most commonly the result of brain damage. Whatever the age — and whatever the result — sports injuries most often affect upper and lower extremities as well as the head and neck. From Delray Beach to Miami, sports injuries are worth fighting. If you have suffered from a sports accident, our experienced Delray Beach sports injury attorneys can help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Sports InjuriesFlorida Law

In Florida, anyone who oversees sports or recreation assumes a level of responsibility over the activities. This means that sports injury victims can hold them accountable. This applies to sports coaches, gym employees, and personal trainers. Negligence from any of these parties can lead to injury, and victims deserve to be appropriately compensated for it. Expert personal injury attorneys will factor in pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost wages — among other key determinants mentioned below. Of course, facts are unique in each case, as is the level of harm in the personal injury situation. Some are catastrophic while others are not.

Between family vacations, barbeques, and the relentless Florida heat, the pool becomes a sanctuary for many people needing a little R&R.

That said, any person is at risk of an unintentional swimming pool accident if negligence or recklessness occurs.
