Tips for Sports Injury Claims

Playing sports comes with the possible risk of injury. Physical contact with other players, slip-and-falls, faulty equipment, poorly maintained sports facilities and other factors can cause brain, spinal, knee and other injuries—and in some cases, even death.

NC Sports Injury Accident

A nine-year-old boy from Wade, NC was killed by a soccer goal post while playing a game at a family gathering. Every week the families meet for a kids’ soccer game, but at this week’s game the goal post allegedly tipped over and fatally struck the boy, Juan Escalera, on his head. The sports injury accident took place at one of the families’ homes in Newton Grove. According to the Children’s Hospital Boston, brain injury is the leading cause of sports-related death in children. Information about the sports equipment maintenance has not been released, however in some cases inadequate care of sports equipment or negligent adult supervision has caused life-changing injuries or death for children.
