I was a spectator at a sporting event and was seriously injured. Can I sue?Return to FAQ Videos
Most often on the back of the ticket that you purchased for the sporting event in fine print, it will read that you are assuming the risks of being at that particular event and that you cannot sue the player or the facility. It’s there.
However, a closer look at the facts and circumstances of your particular situation may dictate that you may have a viable claim. If the injury that you sustained is because of faulty design, if it’s because of inadequate security, if your injury is because of inadequate clean up after a spillage or other inadequacies that you would not have anticipated as a spectator, you may in deed have a viable claim.
