The most common recreational sports accidents in Pennsylvania

Virtually every kind of recreational sport could result in an accident and injuries. Sometimes, when a recreational sport accident occurs, the victims can pursue claims for damages against another party who is deemed at fault for the accident. What, then, are the most common types of recreational sports accidents, and what are the questions a lawyer will typically ask in order to determine who -- if anyone -- is liable for damages?

In the case of boating accidents, injured parties may wish to determine if the boat driver was drunk and/or inattentive for some reason. Alternatively, a docking company might be responsible for an accident that occurred at the boat dock. Accidents involving personal watercrafts like jet skis are another category of injurious accident. In such an event, lawyers will typically want to know if another person aside from the injured party was driving the jet ski, if the jet ski was hit by another boat or if the injured person was hit by a jet ski.

Drownings and other types of swimming accidents could involve another liable party like the owner of the swimming pool. Personal injury attorneys will typically want to know if the accident was called by a slip-and-fall next to the pool, or if it involved someone getting trapped in a swimming pool's drain.

Cruise ship accidents are another common recreational sport accident. In such cases, lawyers will generally want to know where the injury occurred. Were you on the boat at the time of the injury? In what country or state were you at the time of the accident? Was a travel agency involved in the booking of your journey?

There are a wide variety of other kinds of recreational sports accidents that can occur, be it a theme park accident, skiing accident, golf course accident or some other kind of sport. Regardless the type and nature of your recreational sports accident, Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo is here to help.
