In America, sports are a celebrated part of the culture that teaches teamwork, responsibly, and giving your best effort. Texas is known for its sporting excellence in football, baseball, wrestling, and various other sports. Professionally, Texas is known for producing “America’s Team.” Being home to AT&T stadium, Arlington is especially consumed with sports life.
Sports are a source for entertainment and joy, but they are not without risk. This is especially true when we let our children participate in sports. The sad reality is that some players and coaches are neglectful when it comes to safety. If your child has been harmed as the result of a sports injury, you may need an Arlington sports injury attorney. At the Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, we will bring our 30 years of experience to your side.
Every year, millions of children participate in youth sports. Sports have many benefits, including instilling values of personal responsibility, teamwork, sacrifice, and achievement. Most believe participating in sports is a vital part of growing up in America and worth the risk of injury.
Injuries are an unavoidable part of sports. In youth sports, when precautions are properly followed, most injuries are minor and inconsequential. However, some major injuries can be accrued as a result of a coach’s or another player’s negligence. Some common severe youth-sports injuries include the following:
If proper coaching or management practices were upheld, most severe injuries could be avoided. For example, coaches can be inclined to leave players in the game after a sign of injury arises. Instead of making the right decision for a child’s safety, they instead make a decision based on winning the game. If you think your child was injured as a result of negligence, there may be a few factors preventing you from contacting an Arlington sports injury attorney.
For most considering an Arlington sports injury attorney, the fact that they consented to their child’s participation with some sort of waiver prevents them from pursuing a claim. Let’s be clear here: consent does not give coaches or other players the right to negligent behavior. An experienced team of attorney’s know this and will not allow a consent wavier to scare them off.
Sports injuries due to negligence should not occur and you should feel justified to pursue a claim. However, with powerful institutions and wavier agreements, doing so on your own can be incredibly difficult. For that reason, we suggest that you consider consulting with an Arlington sports injury attorney. At The Law Offices of Dorothy Hyde, we refuse to be intimidated by negligent coaches or programs. We will fight with everything we have to ensure that you are not left in finical ruin as a result of your child’s injuries.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
There is no denying that helmets save lives and prevent major injuries in motorcycle accidents, yet there is no requirement in Dallas that says motorcyclists must wear one. That may change. Texas Representative Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) has introduced a bill that would make helmet wearing a requirement for all motorcycle riders in the state. In […]
We expect our leaders to be responsible, examples that show the community the correct way to do things. That is why it has been so shocking to hear the Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder may have committed a crime. Last month, we learned that Felder was accused of hitting a teenager who was riding a scooter […]
In late February, a Dallas deputy was injured after a driver collided with two Dallas County police cars in a hit-and-run incident. The two police cars were blocking two lanes of traffic due to a stalled tractor-trailer. The 2005 Dodge truck struck both vehicles and then fled the scene. There was a deputy in each […]
Today, we want to bring you a story from a Houston hospital because it highlights a pattern of medical errors. At St. Luke’s Medical Center, a woman was given a blood transfusion last year. The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]
Dogs are beautiful but wild creatures. They have their own personalities and often will do all they can to protect their owners. However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
