Actionable Sports Injuries

When you play a sport in school injuries can happen. However, if you feel that you have sustained a serious injury due to another's negligence which could have been prevented, call Karns Burman. There is case law in Rhode Island which may support your claim against the school and/or town for the injuries that you received during a game or practice despite the fact that coaches are immune from prosecution in this State. In Schultz v. Foster-Glocester Regional School District 755 A.2d 153 (R.I. 2000), the plaintiff was injured during cheerleading practice when a new maneuver was introduced without the proper safety precautions causing a 100 percent displaced radia head fracture of her right elbow. The Rhode Island Supreme Court held that the plaintiff was an identifiable person to whom the school district owed a special duty and therefore, plaintiff could proceed with her claim against the school district. I have handled many of these cases and have the experience to get you the compensation that you deserve.
