Sports Injuries Lawyer

Sports are some of the most popular recreational activities for children in the United States. According to the United States Census Bureau, over 30 million children in the U.S. engage in some type of organized sports activity every year. Because such a high number of school-age children play sports, it is not surprising that children are often injured during these activities.

The National Center for Sports Injury estimates that more than 3.5 million children need medical attention for sports injuries every year. If your child has suffered a sports-related injury due to negligent supervision or instruction, you may be able to fight for financial compensation to help cover their medical bills. To learn more about how we can help you, contact a Denver school and playground injury attorney from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today at (303) 423-1770.

Causes of Sports Injuries in Children

If trainers and coaches fail to provide an adequate amount of safety and security for their child players, they may be held responsible for the injuries sustained by a child under their supervision. Negligent adults employed by a school or recreational sports league can act in several ways that may lead to a serious sports injury, including:

  • Not providing safe equipment appropriate to each sport, such as helmets, pads, guards, etc.
  • Making athletes practice too much or too strenuously to allow proper muscle rest
  • Neglecting to treat an injury in a timely manner
  • Ignoring or allowing aggressive behavior between athletes

Any of these behaviors may put a child athlete at risk for injury, and the victim’s family may be eligible for financial compensation for sustained injuries to the child.
