Sports, Fitness, and Recreational Accidents Attorney

Leading Fitness, Recreational, and Sports Injury Lawyer based in Philadelphia

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prioritizing physical activity throughout your day can improve your health in a variety of ways, from managing your weight to reducing your risk of disease and even strengthening your bones and muscles. There’s even evidence that shows your brain health can improve after a single session of sweat-worthy activity. 

We all define physical activity differently. For some, it’s joining a fitness program or gym, for others, it’s a weekly swim club. There are even people aspiring to and maintaining professional sports careers. No matter what level you’re at, from peewee football to the Ironman championships, you deserve a safe environment. When your environment, training, and equipment fall short, and you or a loved one is injured or worse, it’s time to call Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway. We’ve represented and won for our clients at all levels and types of fitness.


What Are the Different Types Fitness-Related Injuries?

Sports and recreational injuries that resulted in an emergency room visit are on the rise, increasing by 20% between 2020 and 2021. In fact, over 3 million people injured by sports and recreational equipment visited the ER in 2021. The fitness-related injuries we see most often are:

  • Traumatic brain & spinal cord injuries
  • Extremity trauma & fractures
  • Internal injuries
  • Burns
  • Cuts, lacerations, and amputations
  • Death

Whether you were out ATVing on your favorite trail or at the gym trying to perfect your squat depth, you should expect that the safety measures are in place to prevent injury. When this fails to happen, it’s time to call Joe Stampone’s team of injury experts to learn about your injuries and hold the right people responsible.


What Activities Have the Most Injuries?

You may think that activities like football and rugby are where the most injuries occur. After all, people are being physically tackled and blocked all in an effort to win the game or improve during practice. The truth is, football and rugby together have less injuries than the top-ranking activity. According to the National Safety Council, these are the top activities that lead to emergency visits:

  1. Exercise
  2. Bicycling
  3. Basketball
  4. Skateboarding, scootering, and hoverboarding
  5. Football
  6. Playground play
  7. Soccer
  8. Trampolines
  9. Baseball and softball
  10. Skating
  11. Golf
  12. Snow skiing and snowboarding
  13. Fishing
  14. Lacrosse, rugby, and miscellaneous ball games
  15. Horseback riding

Every activity has risks involved, but those risks should never come from someone else’s negligence. Joe Stampone and his team of personal injury lawyers specialize in sports, fitness, and recreational accident cases. We ensure the damages, medical bills, and life-changing modifications are paid for by the responsible parties.
