Cedar Rapids Sports Injuries Attorneys
Sports are a major attraction for children and teenagers across the country. Unfortunately, sports can also be dangerous activities if those participating are not properly supervised. As children are learning to control their emotions, learn about victory and defeat, proper technique, teamwork, and all other aspects of sports, it is absolutely imperative for there to be proper adult supervision at all times. However, often due to the negligence of a coach or teacher in charge, students suffer terrible injuries that could have been prevented with better supervision.
If your child was injured while participating in a school-sponsored sporting event, you should pursue compensation from the person or entity responsible for his or her pain and suffering. For more information, speak with an experienced Cedar Rapids sports injuries attorney of Leehey Olson Law, P.C. at 877-209-9452.
Common Types of Sports Injuries
The following injuries commonly occur when there is insufficient adult supervision during children’s sporting activities:
- Fractures and dislocations
- Head injuries
- Sprains and muscle tears
- Back and neck injuries
- Internal bleeding
Coaches and teachers have a responsibility to closely monitor the children in their care whether they are in the classroom, at recess, or playing sports. When these individuals fail in this responsibility, children can be left facing serious and potentially devastating injuries.
