Sports Injuries Archives

Playing team sports can lead to serious injuries

Almost every sport that you play comes with the risk of some injuries. The key point for those who are playing these sports is that proper steps must be taken to minimize the risk of injury to the players. We know that when you are playing sports, you are worried about having fun. That is true until you or someone else is injured.

Summer is a time of increased sports injuries

While many recreational and school sports teams disband practice and play for part of or all of the summer, the warmer months are still a time of increased sports injuries. People everywhere tend to get out more during the summer to enjoy warm weather, and they participate in a variety of activities such as swimming, running, playing ball, throwing a Frisbee or riding a bike.

Unregulated obstacle races can breed injury

Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, Spartan Race -- these are popular obstacle-course events that lure participants with the exhilarating promise of mud pits, fire hurdles, long-distance runs, potential electrical shocks and other obstacles that test physical stamina, not to mention provide lively opportunity for camaraderie and Instagram fodder. 

Youth football league settles case with family of deceased player

In 2012, 25-year-old Joseph Chernach committed suicide. He had been a football player in high school and also for Pop Warner, a youth football league. Chernach's  family brought a lawsuit against Pop Warner after Chernach was found posthumously to have had a brain disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which has been linked to football or other sports where participants regularly experience blows to the head.

Statistics regarding youth sports injuries

While the chances of the average Pennsylvania youth suffering a sports injury are slim, if it does happen to your son or daughter, the recovery process can be arduous, costly and painful. What is worse is when a sports injury is not caused by an accident, but is caused by another person or a sports facility's negligence. When another party's negligence results in a sports injury, the injured child may be able to seek financial restitution in court.
