How to Prove Personal Injury Liability after Sports Injuries

Maryland injury lawyersIf you have been injured in a sports accident and are wondering if you can seek compensation for your injury, Maryland injury lawyers may be able to help. You will have to provide proof against the negligent party, whether it is the stadium for having foreign objects on the field that caused you to fall, or the soccer player on the other team that tripped you.

Contacting a personal injury attorney can be very beneficial because they can help you to receive a fair and just compensation, especially if your injury has caused you to incur medical expenses, hospitalization, miss any amount of work, psychologically or emotionally pain, or a severe, temporary, or permanent injury.

Many people are injured in sports related incidents every year, whether they are playing football, basketball, in pools or even on golf fields. Maryland injury lawyers likely will tell you that unlike professionals, amateurs in recreational league sports teams do not typically file for compensation after they are injured because they do not know how.

Slip and fall injuries while engaging in sports, permanent or severe injuries, inability to be employed again, and injuries to spectators (say, for example, if a fan is hit by a fly ball) are common injuries sustained at sports stadiums and facilities. Often times these kind of sports injuries occur when the manager at the facility is negligent and fails to maintain his or her business. For example, experienced injury lawyers in Maryland will tell you that there should be signs up to prevent fans from being hit with balls or sports equipment, wet floor signs to prevent slipping, and proper safety equipment should be distributed to all of the players.

When fans go to a sporting event they are going voluntarily, so they should be aware that there is the likelihood that they can be injured.  Personal injury lawyers often refer to this type of unawareness as the “assumption of risk” because if you are going to a risky territory, you unknowingly accept the risk that comes with it.

Although it can be difficult, you may be able to prove negligence on part of the facility’s  manager or other team for your injury with the help of Maryland injury lawyers. Taking pictures of the area you were injured in, your injuries, and finding witnesses that can help with your claim are all things you should do to help document the accident.

For example, if you are a player and you have been injured because of defective equipment or hazardous playing field, you can sue for negligent behavior on the stadium’s part with the help of photos of the equipment.

You should also visit a doctor right after you are hurt to start medically documenting your injury. You can try and prove if the party acted in a negligent manner that resulted in injuries (like if a player angrily throws a ball into the stands and hits a fan in the head) by using any written testimonies from witnesses.  In these kind of cases, do not hesitate to contact Cohen & Cohen, a skilled group of Maryland injury lawyers who may be able to help you get your fair compensation.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
