Will an Injury at a Sporting Event Leave You Out of Action?

You likely never attend a professional or amateur sporting event thinking that you will be the one injured when all is said and done. Unfortunately, that is just the case for some fans, fans who never expected to be tended to by medical personnel during a game. In some instances, that injury can even prove fatal.

If you or a loved one has been injured at a sporting event, do you have somewhere to turn to hold those responsible for your injuries? By contacting a Minnesota personal injury attorney, you can make sure your rights are preserved.

As a personal injury attorney in Minnesota can tell you, you in fact do have rights when attending a sporting event, though some organizations will spell out their rules and regulations (typically on the back of ticket stubs).

Those rights can oftentimes be blurred, however, so it is important that you sit down with a personal injury attorney and determine if in fact the business owner (in this case a stadium owner, the city, attending medical personnel, the teams involved etc. in the game that was being played at the time of your injury) is responsible for you getting hurt and/or not receiving proper medical care on the scene.

In meeting with your legal representation, be sure to provide the following details:

  • Injury itself – How, when, where were you injured? If hit by a baseball or hockey puck during a game, were you in fact paying attention or were distracted at the time?
  • Was alcohol involved? – Were you sober at the time of your injury? Stadiums should do their utmost to cut off alcohol sales to any fans that appear to be inepiated (most stadiums/teams have rules for ending alcohol sales before the end of an event).
  • Did medical personnel tend to you immediately? With some serious injuries, getting help as soon as possible can make quite a difference. If you were seriously injured at a sporting event, was medical assistance provided immediately?
  • Accepting responsibility – Finally, did stadium and/or team management admit they were at fault for your injury?
