Football is a popular sport in California, but it can also be dangerous and result in serious injuries. You may be entitled to compensation if you or a loved one has been injured while playing football. Fiore Legal has a team of experienced personal injury attorneys who can help you navigate the legal process and pursue the compensation you deserve. We will work with you to investigate the circumstances of your injury and determine who may be liable for your damages.
When is Someone Accountable for a Sports Injury?
Although there are always risks associated with sports, there are times when another person or entity can be held accountable for your injury. For instance, if a student is playing a sport, the school officials are responsible for their safety in cases where they can reasonably foresee dangerous conditions. School officials must examine and remove hazards on the field and defective sports equipment.
Another example would be pushing an exhausted or sick player too hard, as would allowing or forcing a player to continue following a concussion or other significant injury. The school or program can be held responsible for subsequent damages. During your obligation-free consultation, we will determine whether you have a case and how much it might be worth.
