Whether it is the Stockyards Championship Rodeo, Friday night football, golf, or other outdoor recreation, Fort Worth has just about every sport available to participants and spectators alike. Fort Worth has a great climate that allows for year-round outdoor sporting activities. When Fort Worth residents are heading to their games and matches, or their kids’ games and matches, they often do not think about the dangers of sports and the injuries that can occur. But injuries do occur and sometimes they can be very serious causing massive medical bills and life disruptions.
Texas Children’s Hospital reports some of the following as common sports injuries they see at their hospital:
Waiver and assumption of the risk are common defenses to sports injury claims. Yes you may have signed a waiver for you or your child prior to participating in the sport and yes, you may have assumed the risk for injuries that result from playing the sport, but waiver and assumption of the risk may not be applicable defenses in your case if negligent or intentional conduct caused the injuries.
When children participate in sports, it is important to understand that schools, sports organizations, and especially coaches have a heightened duty of care to your children. Children are more vulnerable than adults when it comes to sports injuries because children do not necessarily have the experience or knowledge to appreciate the seriousness of their injuries. Cases where other people may be responsible for your child’s sports injury include:
If you have sustained a sports injury due to someone else’s negligence or intentional conduct, contact Fort Worth sports injury attorney, Dorothy Hyde, to review the facts of your case. Assumption of the risk and waiver are not absolute defenses and you deserve to be compensated for injuries you or your child sustained as a result of someone else’s intentional or negligent conduct.

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.
