What are some injuries that result from recreational activity accidents?
Any type of physical harm caused by someone else is considered to be personal injury. The injuries that can occur from sports and recreational accidents can range from mild to severe, depending on the nature and fast pace of the activity. These injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bruises
- Simple to severe strains and sprains
Some recreational accidents can involve injuries to many people at one time. This can happen for instance in cases involving equipment failure or other similar issues.
Can I sue for a recreational activity injury?
You may be able to sue depending on how the injury occurred and if you signed a consent form. A consent form is a waiver releasing the organization or person from liability if an injury occurs. In some cases, an injured individual who has given their consent by signing a waiver may be prevented from recovering compensation for any injury suffered.
Amusement Park Accidents
