A Sports Related Injury may occur during games, competitions, practice, and training sessions. Even though Sports Injuries are especially devastating to children, millions of children are involved in some type of organized sport, e.g. hockey, soccer, volleyball, basketball, track-and-fields, gymnastics, etc.
The type and severity of an organized sports accident depends on many factors, and may be explained by lack of supervision, faulty or defective equipment, improper training by the coach, other players, and poor quality playing area. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that approximately four million children require emergency room care as the result of various sports injuries annually.
Injuries which occurred as a result of an organized sport may require hospitalization and various types of expensive treatments, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, surgeries, mobility devices, medications, and other costly treatments. If you or your child has suffered a Sports Related Injury, you need your rights protected now. Call the Law Office of Stephen R. Chesley at (718) 522-3055 for immediate help.
