Recreational Accidents Lawyers & Attorneys
Millions of Americans spend time enjoying sports and recreational activities. When you go out for a day of fun, a sporting activity, a special weekend, or a family vacation, serious injuries or accidents are the last thing you expect to happen. Unfortunately, as more individuals spend their free time pursuing recreational and sporting activities, recreational accidents are occurring with increasing frequency and the effects can be devastating.
Faulty equipment, improper supervision or non-adherence to accepted safety standards are common causes of sports and recreational accidents. Negligent maintenance of property on which sports or other recreation takes place can cause serious personal injury. Individuals and companies that provide and sponsor recreational activities have a duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of patrons who participate in these activities. Playgrounds, golf courses, athletic facilities, fitness centers and skating rinks can all be held legally responsible for the harm they cause due to a dangerous condition or negligent practice.
Defective sports and recreational products can also result in serious injury. Manufacturers of recreational equipment have a responsibility to make certain their equipment, facilities and activities are safe.
A significant percentage of recreational accidents occur when operators of recreational vehicles fail to use proper care in maintaining and operating such vehicles. These vehicles carry many of the same dangers as common road vehicles. Operator error on the part of another individual as well as defective property conditions can result in injury-producing collisions with trees, wires, bridges, boats, snowmobiles, ATVs or other recreational vehicles.
