Sports Injuries in Children

Posted Friday, March 22, 2019 by Chris Thayer

Alternative TextSpringtime is here! In addition to nice weather, a mood lift from the dark and cold days of winter, and the excitement of summer happening soon, many children’s sports teams are starting their spring seasons. Playing a sport can be the highlight of a young person’s life. Organized sports teach teamwork, dedication, hard work, communication skills, physical fitness, and can boost a child’s self-confidence. There are numerous benefits to playing sports, but participating in a sport does not come without risks. Youth sports can result in serious injuries that can change a child’s life.

Parents want to keep their children safe and will stop at nothing to do so. However, accidents and injuries still occur. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the potential injuries your child may incur when playing organized sports.

It is not unreasonable to think that your child might get hurt while playing sports. In many instances, when signing up your child for a sports team, there is a degree of assuming the risk of injury. Some injuries might come with the territory of playing a sport, but not every injury falls under assumption of risk. Regardless of the risk associated with the sport, if an injury is caused by the negligence or wrongful act of another, you might be entitled to compensation for the injury. The personal injury attorneys at Pivotal Law Group are here to help you get the compensation needed to recover from an injury. Contact us today for a consultation.
