Sometimes Personal Injury Attorneys will have prospective clients that come in with complaints of Personal Injuries that were suffered while playing organized sports. Often these individuals want to know if there is anyway that Personal Injury Attorneys can help them recover from the league that they were hurt in or if another person caused their Personal Injury, is there a way that Personal Injury Attorneys can help them recover from them. In most instances the injuries are not trivial and can require extensive medical care in order to properly deal with the Personal Injury and it is the large medical costs that may spur the person to seek the help of Personal Injury Attorneys.
Generally, Personal Injury Attorneys would not be able to help you recover from the league you were hurt in. The reason is that when you signed up you assumed a certain amount of risk that is inherent in playing the game; that, coupled with the waiver most leagues require participants to sign often makes it difficult to place any liability on the league. However, if some action of the league that was greater than simple negligence caused the injury it may be worth talking to Personal Injury Attorneys.
Relative to a person that caused your Personal Injury the logic is much the same. Generally, they would not be liable for your Personal Injury. However, if they acted recklessly or intentionally then you may benefit from the help of Personal Injury Attorneys.
