When friendly Competition gets Out of Hand

At the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg, we work with orthopedic specialists and other medical professionals in explaining the scope and nature of our client’s sports injury. In order to accurately quantify the cost of a serious sports injury, we consult medical economists, taking into consideration initial medical expenses, surgery, physical therapy, and lost wages.

Liability and Sports Injuries – Before You Talk to an Insurer
Participating in sports is voluntary and involves assuming a certain amount of risk. As a result, it’s not uncommon to encounter difficulties with insurance companies in cases involving sports injuries. In some cases, sports injuries may not be covered under a policy. In other cases, the language used may not be clear. In cases involving vague language, typically the benefit of the doubt goes to the insured and not the insurer. That’s why it’s important to carefully read your declarations page to determine if you’re covered.
In cases where another player flagrantly violates the rules of a game in order to cause an injury, he or she may be held liable. Here, it’s important to gather eyewitness testimony that clearly establishes intent on the part of another player to cause bodily harm.
