Organized Youth Sports in Nebraska and Injuries
Organized sports, such as basketball, baseball, soccer, and football, are a great way for children to develop good values, make lasting friendships and get good exercise. Of course, the risk of injury is present in sports like it is in any intense physical activity, but schools, leagues, and coaches generally do their best to enforce certain regulations to keep kids safe. Unfortunately, there are some that neglect safety, push kids too hard, and even encourage overaggressive behavior to the detriment of the children's health.
Common injuries incurred in organized youth sports include abrasions and cuts, broken bones and even head trauma or concussions. While these injuries rarely lead to fatalities, they may cause serious physical and mental health conditions to arise in children, especially ones who are still in their developmental stages. The medical costs associated with the treatment of such injuries can be quite high.
Who Can Held Be Liable for My Child's Sports Injury in Nebraska?
Just because you have signed a form of consent or a waiver upon admitting your child into a sports team does not mean you cannot hold the school or league liable for your child's sports accident. They may be held liable if they allowed inappropriate and potentially dangerous conduct that is outside of the scope of the game, or failed to reprimand coaches or instructors for exhibiting the same behavior. The coaches and instructors themselves may also be held liable for employing inappropriate coaching techniques and methods that put kids at risk of injury.
