What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Sports Injuries Lawyer

In schools today, there are many activities available to students beyond the classroom. Participation in sports as part of the school’s team is often a source of tremendous pride and enjoyment for student-athletes. Unfortunately, participating in any of these athletic endeavors can expose your child to the risk of serious physical injury. While a degree of risk is assumed and expected as a consequence of playing a sport, the danger is inexcusably elevated by the negligence or recklessness of school personnel or opposing athletes.

If your child has been harmed due to preventable circumstances other than the normally accepted risks associated with athletic competition, you may be able to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact compassionate Jacksonville sports injury lawyer, Donald Guthrie, today at 904-296-1088 to discuss your legal options and the potential merits of your case.

Possible Causes for Legal Action

Obviously, it would be unreasonable to seek financial compensation for every single sports injury, because the physically intense nature of athletic competition is naturally bound to produce some injuries. Yet when they are attributable to negligence on the part of school personnel or others, a lawsuit may be the most appropriate method of response. Possible causes for legal action in connection with sports injuries include:

  • Failure to provide adequate and appropriate protective equipment
  • Inadequate maintenance of facilities and grounds that leads to injury
  • Excessive demands in unsafe conditions such as extreme heat and humidity
  • Taunting or hazing rituals
  • Encouragement of excessive violence or illegal maneuvers by opposing coach
