Protecting the Rights of the Injured & Disabled
There are thousands of sports-related injuries in Connecticut every year.
Athletes are a diverse group. An injured athlete may be a child who suffers a concussion during an intramural sporting event, or an experienced adult bicyclist who is thrown from his bicycle while traveling on a defective highway.
When an athlete suffers an injury as a result of the negligence or recklessness of another, he or she may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and damages. This may be the case even if the athlete (or the athlete’s parents) sign a liability release form.
Causes of sports injuries are numerous, and commonly include negligent coaching (pushing an athlete too much, or not providing sufficient supervision); the provision of improper gear (such as a defective football helmet); allowing athletes to play or practice on unsafe or inappropriate premises (such as encouraging athletes to engage in full-contact, high-speed activities in a limited indoor space); and a sport official’s failure to properly officiate a game (such as by failing to remove dangerously aggressive players from the area of play).
