Recreational accident injuries happen all the time. A child breaks their arm or leg when playing on a public trampoline or at the park, someone suffers a head injury in an ATV accident, someone drowns or nearly downs in a pool. These are all common, unexpected, and often devastating. Holding someone accountable for these injuries can take time.

Boating for example: according to a recent Recreational Boating Statistics Report by the U.S. Coast Guard, the fatality rate per 100,00 registered vessels was 5.5. That’s almost 6 deaths per 100,000 registered vessels. Common injuries involve traumatic brain injury, bruising, lacerations, broken bones, fractures, paralysis, and more. Beyond the common injuries, death is also a possibility. According to statistics from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, recreational activities, including sports, account for an estimated 3.2 million visits to emergency rooms each year for children aged 5-14 years.
Despite how different each activity and injury can be, fault and blame can normally be attributed to a common set of factors:
- Defective products
- Defective equipment
- Poorly maintained facilities
- Unsupervised activities
- Failure to warn
- Lack of signage
Recreational accidents are problematic for a variety of reasons. If these recreational activities act as training to play a sport professionally it can mean the end to a promising career. If these recreational activities are a hobby, it could mean the end of a fun way to spend time. Injuries sustained could be long-lasting or even permanent and could require years of medication and physical therapy. But the day to day grind continues.
