Sports Camp Injuries
An important part of childhood is being able to participate in a sports related activity. Beyond school sports, many children are involved in separate leagues and organizations. Even beyond the organized schedule, children attend specialized camps or attend training facilities for their sports.
If your child is injured playing a sport, do not make the simple assumption that the injury was just part of the game. Many injuries that children incur while involved in an organized sport could be prevented with proper supervision, proper training of staff and coaches and appropriate equipment. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you evaluate the scenario surrounding the injury to determine if a potential claim exists.
A parent should not feel guilt or shame for looking into an injury involving a child playing a sport. Laws exist to protect children and prevent injury. If an injury happens and action is not taken the same situation can occur again and injure another child if it is not corrected.
The parent of an injured child should be aware that the law regarding sports injuries can be complex. A parent should speak to a lawyer to determine if a viable claim exists.
