Sports injuries can happen at any age, including the elementary school years. When the weather gets hot, even death can occur if one gets too overheated. The most common sports injury, even in younger players, is traumatic brain injury in the form of a concussion. While helmets significantly reduce the risk of suffering from a concussion, it is still possible to suffer from one if you hit your head hard enough. If you have gone through or are suffering from a sports injury, contact us via this form.

Types of Sports Injuries

Sports trauma ranges from bruises to catastrophic injuries and could include:

  • Bruises, cuts, scrapes, and abrasions
  • Strains, sprains, and pulled muscles
  • Dislocated joints
  • Fractures and compound fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries, especially concussions
  • Neck, back, and spine injuries

In some cases, more serious afflictions may show up later in life, such as Ménière’s disease and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE can be diagnosed only after death and is caused in part by traumatic brain injuries such as concussions. Ménière’s disease is an inner-ear disorder that causes dizziness, nausea, tinnitus, and more. It usually shows up in people in their 40s and 50s, and may be in both ears, though it usually starts in one ear and may move to the other as the disease progresses.

Recoverable Damages

You may be able to recover economic, noneconomic, and punitive damages due to sports injuries. Economic damages are those with a specific amount tied to them, while noneconomic damages do not have a price attached.

Economic Damages

When you suffer a sports injury, you will probably have medical costs. These and other types of costs are recoverable. Economic damages include:

  • Medical costs already incurred as a result of the sports injury
  • Medical costs that you may incur in the future that are related to the sports injury
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages in the event that the injury prevents you from working for the long term or permanently

If you have an underlying condition that may make your sports injury heal more slowly, let your attorney know so that they may better estimate future medical costs. 

Noneconomic Damages

General, or noneconomic, damages are usually awarded if your injuries cause long-term or permanent issues and may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship if you no longer can do things with your spouse
  • Loss of consortium if you no longer can have a sexual relationship with your spouse
  • Loss of use of a limb
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Punitive Damages

You will be awarded punitive damages only if you are able to show that the defendant acted in a grossly negligent manner or intentionally made you do something knowing it could cause injury or death. Punitive damages are used as a punishment and/or deterrent in civil cases.
