Dallas Child Sports Injury Lawyers
Participating in sports is a great way for children to build confidence, learn to work with others, develop discipline, and get some exercise. While all physical activity involves some degree of risk, children’s sports organizations should make every effort to protect the kids who participate. When this doesn’t happen, a school, a private sports organization, or a sports equipment company may be to blame. If your child has been the victim of a serious sports injury, there are steps that you can take to seek justice for your child and your family.
The attorneys at The Benton Law Firm understand the far-reaching impact that injuries can have on a child’s life. Our skilled injury attorneys believe that children should be able to safely enjoy the healthy competition and community that sports activities provide. We have been fighting for Dallas families for years because we know firsthand how expensive and damaging injuries are. Making liable parties pay for the damage that they have caused can offset out-of-pocket medical costs, and help prevent similar negligence in the future.

Injuries to the human body can create complications for years to come. Developing children can be particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of injuries. Though children often have the capacity to heal quickly, a serious injury can threaten to stunt their growth or cause severe developmental delays.
Dealing with the challenges of a child injury can be incredibly expensive. By holding those responsible legally accountable for your child’s injury, you can receive much-needed compensation to help treat your child’s injuries, both now and in the future. However, trying to handle a claim without legal assistance can be difficult, if not impossible. Lawyers have comprehensive knowledge of negligence law, experience handling child injury claims, and the skill to negotiate a satisfactory settlement. With a lawyer on your side, you are likely to receive far more money than you would on your own.
Additionally, those who put children at risk, even if it’s a simple oversight, need to know that there are consequences to their negligence. By taking legal action, families take important steps in ensuring that other children don’t face the same misfortune in the future.

Types of Child Sports Injury Cases We Handle
Depending on the sport and the type of injury, child sports injuries will vary in severity. The following are some common sports-related injuries that can cause serious harm to children:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Damaged growth plates
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Heat stroke
- Serious sprains
Establishing responsibility in the wake of a child sports injury can be complicated. A skilled lawyer can help establish responsibility for the injury. Possible negligent parties may include:
- Inadequate Sports Equipment Manufacturers — Companies that manufacture equipment that doesn’t meet safety standards or that has defects could cause serious harm to those who rely on it for protection.
- Unsafe Sports Facilities — Property owners who host sporting events have a duty to keep their guests safe. Failing to maintain the area could be the direct cause of a serious injury.
- Schools — Whether it’s a public or a private school, if the administration fails to provide a suitably safe environment for your child to engage in recreation, they may be liable for the injury.
- Coaches — The coach of a child’s sports team (whether paid or working as a volunteer) could be held responsible if their negligence or oversight lead to a child’s injury.
If your child has sustained a sports injury, our lawyers are ready to help you determine the next steps to take to seek justice.
