Participating in sports and staying active can bring a number of health benefits to your life. Recreational activities can help improve and maintain physical fitness, as well as reduce mental stress.
Sports are fun, and most people understand that there is some amount of risk involved when engaging in physical activity. So there are, of course, some types of injuries that would be considered no-fault. But it is also possible to become injured due to someone else’s conduct or negligence. Defective equipment, either because of faulty manufacturing or poor maintenance, can also cause accidents.
Injuries can range from cuts and scrapes to more severe traumas such as sprains, concussions, broken bones, head and neck injuries, paralysis, and even death. What was meant to be an enjoyable activity can quickly become life-changing. A sports injury attorney can help you determine your rights.
