Sports Injury Attorney

Leading Sports Injury Lawyer Based in Philadelphia

Across the United States, people of all ages are engaged in sports of all skill levels—from the kids at soccer practice to the newly drafted tight end on the football field. There are weekend sports clubs for people looking just to have fun doing what they love, and there are aspiring Olympic athletes looking to make their qualifier. No matter what level of fitness and athleticism you’re at, injuries happen, and in some cases, they are due to the negligence of the property owner, the sports club, or even other athletes on the team. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed at a sports event, you need Joe Stampone’s team of sports lawyers who can help get you the compensation you deserve.


What Are the Different Types of Sports Injuries?

Sports injuries can occur at any level of athleticism, whether you’re someone who walks the outdoor track at the local high school or you’re heading to the state championships with hopes of being drafted to your favorite club. Sports-related trauma can be anything from a small inconvenience to a life-changing injury or even death. Here are a few different types of injuries incurred during athletic events: 

  • Mild injuries: From cuts to bruises and scrapes, these injuries tend to have minimal impact on your ability to get back to doing what you love.
  • Moderate injuries: These injuries tend to require a small amount of recovery time before you can get back to your normal routine. This can include internal bruising, sprains, and minor tears.
  •  Serious injuries: Serious injuries range from simple to compound fractures to significant lacerations. These injuries could require long recovery times and modifications at work.
  • Severe injuries: Concussions, spinal cord, and traumatic brain injuries can create expensive, life-altering problems that require extended medical intervention and modifications made at your home. Severe injuries can also include chronic injuries, such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) often seen in football players who experience regular head injuries.
  • Unsurvivable injuries: This level of trauma either leads to death at the event or in the hospital soon after.
