Sporting & Recreational Accident Lawyers

Sporting and recreational accidents can occur in all sorts of scenarios and if you suffer an injury due to someone else’s negligence you may be able to claim compensation.  This negligence can be by an individual participant, and employee or against team leagues, event organizers and others.

Sporting and recreational accidents can occur in several ways, whether it’s from an individual’s negligence, defective or improper use of equipment, failure to follow rules/policies, amongst others.

Common situations where injuries arise out of sporting and recreational accidents are:

  • Sporting Events
  • Amusement Parks
  • Trampoline Parks
  • Swimming Pools
  • Water Parks
  • Summer Camps
  • Skating Rinks

Sporting and recreational accidents are extremely common with children and teenagers.  One thing most people do not realize is that a parent or guardian cannot contract away a minor’s rights in British Columbia, nor can a minor enter into a contract to waive their own rights.  Because of this many waivers entered into on behalf of children and teenagers are not valid and cannot stop you from making a claim for your injuries. 

Even if you signed a waiver you should look into your legal rights and contact a lawyer from Taylor & Blair LPP now.
