Sports Injury Lawyers in Toronto
While most individuals understand and accept the risk that they may suffer minor injuries while participating in sporting activities, serious injuries may be grounds for a lawsuit.
A sport injury can occur in any context such as during an organized competitive or recreational sports activity, or while you are engaging in recreational excursions.
Sports Injury Law is a broad area of law and includes claims in negligence where the injury is the result of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness and/or assault and battery where the injury is caused intentionally. There may also be grounds for a product liability claim where the injury is caused by faulty equipment.
Depending on the circumstances of the injury, you may have a legal claim against the organizing body, league, facility, equipment manufacturer, and/or the opposing team/participant(s).
Even in cases where you have been seriously injured after having signed a waiver to participate in the sporting activity, you should contact a lawyer to discuss your rights.
