Negligence and Recreational Activities
Days dedicated to fun and relaxation can suddenly turn tragic when negligence leads to injury. The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder pursue financial compensation for clients who were seriously injured in recreational accidents, including:
- Snowmobile accidents
- Skiing accidents
- Boating accidents
- Accidents at amusement parks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Diving accidents
- School sports accidents
- ATV rollover accidents
- Biking accidents, including BMX bike accidents
One of our cases involved a member of a college cheerleading team who was left a paraplegic after a fall. She had been asked to do a dangerous stunt by a coach who had no experience or knowledge in teaching the dangerous gymnastic movements involved in cheerleading.
The Bluefish Case
One example of our representation of personal injury clients is John Nathans, a former catcher of the Bridgeport Bluefish baseball team, who was attacked with a baseball bat by former major league all star Jose Offerman during a professional baseball game that ended the catcher's career.
We look at these cases carefully to identify all possible sources of financial compensation. Was the injury caused by a dangerous property condition or by a defective product? In a case involving a go-cart accident, for example, we found a defect in the cart's safety harness.
