  • What Are Common Types of Baseball Injuries?

    There are many different ways in which injuries can occur at or near a baseball event. By attending a baseball game, spectators must assume some level of reasonable risk.

    However, other instances may qualify as injuries caused by negligence. If your baseball injuries are the responsibility of another party, they may owe you compensation for the costs and losses you experience.

    To determine who could be legally at fault for your physical and financial damages, make sure to speak with a knowledgeable tort lawyer. The Morgan and Morgan litigators have years of experience with personal injuries occurring in the context of baseball.

    Hit by an MLB Baseball

    One of the most common instances in which people experience baseball injuries is being hit by a stray ball. If you have been injured by a foul ball at a Major League Baseball (MLB) game, you may wonder if you can file a legal claim for damages.

    The MLB presumes that those fans watching baseball games understand the inherent risks of attendance. In many cases, some of the potential hazards of attending a baseball game are written on MLB ticket stubs.

    This is intended to protect the franchise owners from potential premises liability lawsuits. Also, most courts around the country adhere to a standard known as the “Baseball Rule.”

    Most tort claims rely on the concept of a “duty of care.” In most instances, property owners have a duty of care to provide a reasonably safe environment for their customers and visitors.

    The “Baseball Rule” places this duty on the attendees of MLB games. In other words, it is often the responsibility of fans to avoid becoming injured while attending a game. 

    This rule is especially relevant when fans sit in areas of the park without protective netting between themselves and the field. Many baseball stadiums have netting directly behind home plate. Because of the protection that this netting provides, some baseball parks are extending the netting to other seating areas.

    Even with the “Baseball Rule” in play, courts may decide that a foul ball injury is the responsibility of the MLB. Because of this, it is critical to speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer regarding your baseball injuries.

    In cases where the victim bears some of the responsibility for their foul ball injury, they may be able to recover a portion of the cost of their injuries. This will depend on the laws and statutes in the state where your accident took place. 

    Some of the circumstances that might qualify as negligence on the part of park owners include:

    • Failing to meet federal requirements for safety netting
    • Failing to repair or maintain safety netting
    • Not making required repairs to the seats or building
    • Not providing attendees with protection in high-risk seats

    If you have suffered baseball injuries after being struck with a foul ball, speak with one of the attorneys at Morgan and Morgan.

    Slip and Fall Baseball Park Accidents

    While baseball fans need to assume some level of reasonable risk when attending games, other types of accidents are the result of negligence. One of the most common baseball injuries occurs when fans experience falling accidents on the stadium’s premises.

    If you have attended a baseball game and been injured in a falling accident at the stadium, you have the right to pursue a legal claim. There are many circumstances that could result in a slip and fall accident at a baseball stadium.

    Some of the most common factors that might result in a falling accident are:

    • A wet or slippery surface without proper signage
    • Cracked or broken paved walkways
    • Cracked or broken stadium steps
    • Paths obscured by debris
    • Cables stretched across pathways

    Baseball fans do not need to assume the risk of slipping and falling when coming to watch a game. Following a falling accident injury, victims can pursue a premises liability claim to attempt to recover the costs of the damage.

    To file a successful slip and fall lawsuit after your injury, make sure to hire an attorney with plenty of experience in this type of claim. The most complex element of premises liability cases is proving fault.

    To prove that another party is responsible for the costs and losses from your slip and fall injury, you will need to show that they were “negligent.” The legal concept of “negligence” consists of four distinct elements. 

    Claimants in slip and fall cases must show:

    • The property owner owed them a duty of care
    • The property owner failed to fulfill their duty
    • The failure of duty caused the falling accident
    • The accident resulted in actual harm

    The tort attorneys at Morgan and Morgan will review the facts of your falling accident case and help you prove negligence. If the property owners did not provide a reasonably safe environment in the baseball park, you have the right to pursue compensation for the resulting harm.

  • What Are the Types of Financial Compensation in Baseball Accident Claims?

    When you have been hurt in a baseball-related accident because of another person’s negligence, you may be owed financial recovery. Most victims are unaware of the types of financial compensation that they can hope to recover following baseball injuries.

    The term for financial payments to compensate accident and injury victims is “damages.” In most successful personal injury cases, claimants can hope to recover at least two types of compensation: “special” and “general” damages.

    What Are Special Damages?

    Special damages are also known as “economic” damages. These payments are meant to restore the victim to their previous financial status.

    In other words, economic damages make up for the injured person’s direct financial losses. When you have experienced a baseball injury, it is common to face many resulting financial expenses.

    You have the right to seek compensation for all of these expenses. Some of the common examples of special damages in baseball injury claims include:

    • Current and past medical bills and debt
    • Expected costs of future care and treatments
    • Prescription medication expenses
    • Surgical costs
    • Lost wages and income from missing work
    • Associated property damage

    Any type of financial loss can be recouped by claiming economic damages. Most victims who sustain an injury underestimate the economic losses that result from their accident. 

    Do not settle for less than you rightly deserve. Contact one of the skilled legal specialists at Morgan and Morgan to accurately determine special damages in your case.

    What Are General Damages?

    Baseball injury victims do not only suffer from monetary losses. Some of the most difficult outcomes from a personal injury are intangible.

    General damages are payments intended to make up for the personal, emotional, and psychological harm from a tort. In personal injury claims, some of the most typical examples of general damages include compensation for:

    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Temporary or permanent disability
    • A decrease in the victim’s quality of life
    • Emotional distress and anguish
    • Depression and anxiety disorders

    Insurance providers often attempt to downplay and devalue the intangible harm from an injury. Do not let this happen in your case. The baseball injury lawyers at Morgan and Morgan will ensure that you pursue every cent of general damages that is rightfully yours.

  • What Are Contingency Fees?

    Following a baseball injury, victims typically face mounting costs for medical care and lost income. Therefore, injured people are rightly concerned about the potential expense of legal representation.

    The compassionate legal professionals at Morgan & Morgan understand the difficulties that victims of baseball injuries experience. That is why the lawyers at our firm are compensated through contingency fees.

    When you hire one of our attorneys, we will specify a percentage of the recovery from your baseball injury claim. Your legal representative will only be compensated if they successfully negotiate a settlement or win your case.

    In other words, we do not get compensated unless you get paid. This guarantees that your Morgan & Morgan personal injury attorney will fight as hard as possible to get the money that you deserve.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Baseball Injury Lawsuit?

    The legal time limit that determines how long you have to file specific types of lawsuits is known as the “statute of limitations.” Failing to pursue compensation before the statute of limitations runs out may cause your case to be dismissed.

    However, there is no uniform federal statute of limitations for civil personal injury claims. Instead, the legal time limit is set by state law.

    For this reason, it is crucial for victims to hire a tort attorney as soon as possible following their accident. To determine the statute of limitations in your baseball injury case, reach out to the firm of Morgan & Morgan today.
