Sports Injuries? They’re Complicated

Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin’s mid-game cardiac arrest has led to increased attention to sports safety and injuries. Sports injuries are injuries of any kind sustained by a participant in a sporting event. Sports injuries can be complicated because they not only involve tort law—like other personal injury claims—but also labor law, in the case of professional athletes, and contract law, if any agreements or waivers have been signed in relation to the activity. Sports injuries can also be exacerbated by medical malpractice and other types of negligence. If you have sustained a sports injury that resulted from negligence, please contact our law firm.
