Injury Claims From Sports Events Come From Circumstances Outside The Field Of Play

However, actions that are not a normal part of the sport are a different matter. For instance, a player who throws something in anger at another player but strikes and injures a fan instead, or a players’ brawl that spills into the stands and causes harm to spectators.  Assumption of risk also does not apply to circumstances originating from outside the field of play. For example, if an attendee is injured due to a defective product (e.g., railing, escalator, steps, etc.), inadequate lighting, a slip-and-fall incident, or lack of security personnel, among other possibilities, he/she may have a valid personal injury claim.

Attending a ball game should be a fun night out. However, if you are injured, contact me ​or call (404) 474-0804 to explore your options.
