When playing a recreational sport or engaging in some other form of recreational physical activity, sometimes injuries are part of the risks involved; however, in some instances, injuries may be the result of someone else's negligence. In the latter situations, the owners or operators of the facility where the accident occurs can be held liable for damages resulting from their negligence.
The inherent dangers and risks notwithstanding, proper maintenance of a facility and proper safety measures often greatly reduce the likelihood that an accident will occur. In some cases, sports fields, pools, skate parks, ski resorts and other recreational facilities simply do not adequately maintain their facilities. As a result, avoidable injuries occur.
If, while engaging in a sport or other recreational activity, you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
