Child Injury and Children’s Sports Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona

Children injured in football, cheerleading, softball, soccer, or any sport . . .

Children have the right to safety. Participation in a sporting event should be fun, not dangerous.  Minor aches, pains, and bruises may be a normal part of childhood and athletic competition. But, too often,Arizona’s children and teenagers are injured—sometimes even killed—due to the negligence of trusted adult guardians or defective equipment.

When a child is injured playing a sport, their injury may have a lifelong impact. For instance, suffering a spinal injury playing football may make walking or even moving ever again impossible. The adult or adults responsible for a child’s safety must be held accountable so that an injured child receives help in a time of need. Adults must also be held accountable so that they never neglect or mistreat another child.

For the sake of all child athletes, adults must be held accountable.

Referees, coaches, teachers, babysitters, daycare providers, and other adults have a responsibility to protect the children under their supervision. They too often fail. Contact the Law Offices of Shane L. Harward if your son or daughter has suffered any of these misfortunes:

  • Trauma related to faulty sport safety equipment (see Defective Toys & Products)
  • Heat related injury including heat exhaustion or stroke
  • Broken bones, spinal, or head injuries resulting from cheerleading performance
  • Concussion, especially common in football
  • Pain resulting from overuse or excessive practicing

No child should suffer because an adult failed in their responsibility. When a child has been injured playing a sport or participating in an athletic activity, Arizona Attorney Shane L. Harward can help obtain justice and compensation.

Many options to get justice when a child is injured playing sports.

Though taking the responsible party to court is a viable option, it is only one of many methods. If your case does go to court, Shane L. Harward will use all of his experience to help your family. But, there are many options for getting what your child deserves: mediation, arbitration, and other alternatives to trial.
