Kansas City Injury Lawyers Going The Extra Mile

Kansas City Sports Injury Attorney

If you or someone you love is active and into sports, we know that you do what you can to be safe. However, there may come a time when you need help from our Kansas City sports injury attorneys. If the careless or negligent actions of another person cause you or a loved one to sustain a sports injury, we are here to help.

At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we will be dedicated to investigating what happened so we can secure the compensation you need for all of your injury-related expenses.

What we know can happen

When you play a sport or allow your child to play a sport, you take an “assumption of risk.” What this means is that you know there are certain risks of danger to that activity, particularly if a contact sport is involved. When a child plays a sport, a parent will typically sign a waiver of consent for them to do so, stating that they know there are risks involved.

While most sports injuries are accidents, we know that they are not all a result of that “assumed risk” you decided to take. In many cases, sports injuries are caused by someone else’s reckless or careless behavior. These are the types of injuries you cannot predict. Even worse, there are times when sports injuries happen as a result of another person’s intentional harm, actions someone takes designed to caused harm.

Intentional harm in sports can take various forms. One example of this is:

  • A football player getting stepped on, struck, or kicked after a play is over or another. While football is a contact sport, intentionally harming someone is not the same as a legal tackle.

We also know that sports team operators have a duty to ensure that participants have the proper safety equipment necessary for that sport. Failing to do so can cause a player to sustain serious injuries.

A note on concussions

We know that anyone who plays contact sports, particularly children, are susceptible to concussions. In the US, there are an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million sports-related concussions each year. It is vital that coaches and sports staff follow proper concussion protocol to prevent a mild injury from becoming a serious traumatic brain injury.

Time to move forward from here

While we all know there are risks associated with playing sports, that does not mean you should ever have to worry about another person’s careless or negligent actions. At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we are ready to help if you or a loved one have suffered from a sports injury. Let our knowledgeable and experienced team get to work investigating this incident so we can secure the compensation you need, including:

  • Coverage of medical expenses
  • Recovery of lost wages if you are unable to work
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Possible punitive damages against the negligent party
