What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Injuries in Youth Sports

Many parents want their children to become involved in after-school sports, and for good reason. Sports can be an excellent way to learn new skills, build character, and stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, when the adults in charge of youth sports programs fail to perform their jobs adequately, the health hazards can outweigh the benefits.

If your child has suffered a sports injury due to a negligent coach or school district, you may have grounds for pursuing legal action. Jacksonville sports injury attorney Don Guthrie can help you research your options and fight for justice. Call our offices today at 904-296-1088.

Negligence and Sports Injuries

Whether a coach works for a school district or a private organization, he or she has an important duty to promote safety. Children can suffer severe and preventable injuries if the adults they trust commit errors such as:

  • Failure to provide adequate safety equipment
  • Allowing or even encouraging harmful tactics while playing
  • Enforcing overly strict and dangerous practice regiments or other policies
  • Failure to instruct students about necessary safety precautions
  • Denying necessary breaks, water, or medical care

Negligence like this can lead to life-changing injuries for innocent children, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Bone fractures or other damage to the musculoskeletal system
  • Severe dehydration

There is no excuse for subjecting anyone to such dangers, especially minors. If your child has been injured by a careless coach, teacher, or school district, our Jacksonville youth sports injury attorneys will fight for your rights.
