From kids to adults, many Americans play sports for entertainment. Though it seems like harmless fun in most cases, sports may lead to some of the most gruesome injuries a person can sustain. These injuries are usually painful and may render an individual unfit to work for long periods of time.
Sports injuries are sometimes caused by negligence. If you or someone you love suffered a sports injury because of someone else’s negligent action, contact the Clearwater catastrophic injury lawyers of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos, PLLC at 727-441-9030 to speak with an experienced attorney.
Common Sports Injuries
Sports involve physical exertion; as such, many body parts are susceptible to injury. Some of the most common sports-related injuries are:
- Joint sprains
- Broken bones
- Tendon and ligament tears
- Head injuries
Some of these injuries are more serious than others and may require more time to heal. Unfortunately, this may mean that the individual who suffered the injury is unable to return to work until fully healed, which may be weeks or even months after he or she suffered the injury.
Luckily, some individuals may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries. These individuals will need to prove negligence on the part of the accused individual when filing a personal injury lawsuit. This may be a difficult task, so it is a good idea to seek experienced legal counsel.
