Participating in sports activities may cause injuries from time to time. That’s never questioned. What involves JML Law, an Anaheim sports injury attorney, is how these injuries are treated or what negligent actions forced someone to tear their ulterior crucial ligament or break their arms. While quick to blame lack of stretching or not participating properly, growing numbers of child and adult sports injuries stem from training negligence or poorly constructed or maintained equipment.
We Litigate Sports Injury Claims
So, you were practicing gymnastics on rings, when suddenly the entire contraption fell, forcing you to fall violently and severely injure your back. Pretty difficult to say gymnasts were poorly trained when equipment failed, right? Sports trainers and equipment manufacturers will still point their fingers far away from their own actions. How does JML Law prove these cases?
- First, we must identify the fault. In the case above, it’s clear poorly maintained rings caused injury or the chains holding the rings weren’t built property. This gives us two places to start: the sports trainer, and the equipment manufacturer.
- Next, we’ll figure out where things went awry. Certain sports gear may have weight restrictions which, if violated, may put blame either on the sports trainer for failing to disclose this, or the gymnast who refused to listen.
- After collecting witness information and other pertinent facts, we’ll build our case based on what our Anaheim sports injury attorney suggests. If our team feels your case lacks substance, we’ll find more evidence or consult with you regarding our findings.
- Finally, we’ll either work towards negotiating compensation through pretrial demand or take your case to court, either of which works for us.
Exact details are specific to each claimant’s injury. Some cases may need to be settled by the court if the defendants are defiant. Others may be so strong, litigating in court would be a formality rather than necessity. JML Law deals with fault sports equipment and poor training cases frequently.
Sporting Venues Aren’t the Only Culprits
Cities or schools charged with maintaining playground equipment could be held liable, too. Hotels with swing sets, trampolines, even swimming pools left unattended all fall under similar legal responsibility. Anything where people perform some sporting activity, and another has the responsibility to maintain it or replace it when found defective, qualifies under our sports injury claim service.
Yes, there are some organizations with immunity to litigation, although even those businesses will sometimes choose to settle not out of necessity, but goodwill. However, most venues or businesses with sporting equipment publicly accessible will face still fines and civil liability for poorly maintained products or misguided training.
