Ottawa Lawyer: Sport Injuries and Compensation

Head Injury in Sports

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth

I receive calls regularly asking me questions about sporting injuries and does one have the right to sue. In every sport, there are injuries. While some injuries may be avoided in sports, others aren’t.  Sporting injuries can happen anywhere; a friend’s house,  school, gymnasiums, sport fields and sport training facilities. Football and hockey seem to be the sports with the highest rates of severe injuries that hear of due to the high impact and high number of head injuries associated with these 2 sports. Some sport head injuries become mild concussions and people are able to return to their sport within a few days or weeks. As we all know, there are also severe head, back, brain, neck and spinal cord injuries that result from sporting accidents.  These injuries are life-altering and catastrophic injuries.

I’m often asked about compensation about such injuries.  Not all cases of sporting injuries result in the right to sue and seek insurance compensation. In order to receive compensation, it needs to be proven that the  facility where the injury took place provided  unsafe, or dysfunctional equipment. If this is proven, then they can be help liable. It may be difficult to prove negligence , but with proper documentation, pictures and witnesses , a personal injury lawyer can help build a personal injury case to ensure you receive maximum compensation.
