The Role of Negligence in Recreational Injuries
A recreational injury can be brought to court in the case of negligence by those responsible for the arena of the recreational activity. Negligence of this kind takes many shapes. Icy pathways at a mountain resort, drunk lifeguards, or poorly maintained ATVs or boats, can lead to serious injuries or even death. Recreational injuries that result within the normal activities of whatever you’re doing at the time of the injury may not be case worthy. Only in cases where an employee or organization has created an unnecessarily dangerous situation, can you bring a recreational injury negligence suit against the offending party.
