    Chicago Sports Facility Accident Attorney

    Find out if you have case

    Sports are a fun and healthy diversion from the stresses of work and school. Unfortunately, sports injuries are common and sometimes require the involvement of premise liability attorneys. Premises liability can attach to owners of property where sports and other recreational activities are played, including: parks, gyms, rinks, courts, lakes, beaches, playgrounds, racetracks, and clubs. When sports and recreational injuries are the result of negligent, careless or reckless behavior, a personal injury law firm can determine if the victim is entitled to compensation for the damages sustained, including medical expenses, future damages and loss of income, among others. At times, it is not clear who is responsible for the injury, so the victim may choose to hire a personal injury law firm and its premise liability attorneys for guidance.

    A personal injury law firm recognizes that a number of different circumstances can lead to the property owner’s premise liability when a personal sports or recreation injury occurs. Some examples include:

    • The facility is not designed to meet the accepted standards of safety.
    • Improperly trained staff.
    • Allowing athletes to engage in sports without the proper safety equipment.
    • Failure to provide medical aid.
