Could a simple day at the ballgame leave you in need of head injury lawyers in Manhattan? The answer might surprise you; A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a six year old girl who suffered serious head injuries after being struck with a baseball at an Atlanta Braves game. Reportedly, the girl and her parents were seated behind the visitor’s dugout when a line drive foul ball was hit into their section. The young girl was unable to protect herself from the incoming projectile that was, as the lawsuit states, “hit at an incredible rate of speed.”
The suit goes on to name the Atlanta Braves as a defendant, claiming that the team failed to provide proper protection to prevent these sorts of accidents. The Braves’ owner, Liberty Media Corp., and Major League Baseball Enterprises are named as defendants as well.
It happens that fast. One minute you’re enjoying the game, the next, you’re a part of it, and not in a good way. This is where Goldblatt & Associates, P.C. expert head injury lawyers in Manhattan, can assist you.
It’s a very, very dangerous situation that can be easily remedied. They can make it a safer place for the fans, in particular the children, who go to games. The easy remedy is to put up more netting.
If you should ever find yourself in a situation like this the Manhattan head injury lawyers of Goldblatt & Associates, P.C. would start by establishing that the aforementioned parties were aware of certain “high risk areas” of the ballpark where broken bats and foul balls are more likely to be directed. We would also prove that despite this knowledge, the defendants failed to take the proper precautions in adequately protecting fans seated in these areas. While warnings about the inherently dangerous nature of a live baseball are written on the back of each ticket and occasionally flashed on the scoreboard during games, these warnings are insufficient, especially for young children, but it will take very skilled head injury lawyers in Manhattan to take on the MLB.
In this case, you or your affected loved one would be entitled to seek compensation for pain and suffering, punitive damages, and medical bills. If you or a loved one suffered a similar head injury, from any source (not only recreational events such as baseball games) you may be entitled to compensation for your damages as well.
