Were you or someone you are close to injured during an athletic competition? You may have a cause of action against the responsible party if that person was reckless.
To show someone was reckless, you may consider the following factors (among others):
- The specific game involved
- The ages of the participants
- The degree of zest with which the game was played
- The types of risks inherent in the game and outside the realm of reasonable anticipation
- The game’s rules or customs
- The presence or absence of protective uniforms or equipment
Liability for Sports Injury Cases in Kansas City
To make your case after a sports injury in Missouri, you must show a basis for the defendant’s duty to act; the omission or commission by the defendant that involves recklessness; and your resulting injury from the defendant’s actions. If you were not harmed by another participant in a sporting event, you still may have a negligent or intentional tort claim against a third party, such as the sport’s sponsor.
