You may be concerned about injury and consequential problems as the result of participating in a sport. Our team can review both on-field and off-field incidents and provide tailored advice. We have a particular expertise in the evolving debate about concussion and liability.
Liability for injuries in sport varies by state or territory. It may include possible claims under insurance or workers compensation. The issues involved in personal injury can cover risk management; negligence by leagues, clubs and athletes; intentional and negligent actions; pre-existing injuries; liability of venues, such as gyms and fitness centres; and the duty of care owed by the coach, manager or team doctor.
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a flexible, time-efficient and cost-efficient mechanism that helps parties in sports disputes to come to practical and satisfactory solutions. Parties can choose a mediator, arbitrator or expert with specific expertise in sports law, intellectual property (IP) and dispute resolution.
