Defective Sport and Recreation Products
There is no question that sporting and recreational activities are an important part of American life. They offer an opportunity for young children to remain active and engaged with their friends outside of school. They also provide families with a way to bond and stay connected across generational boundaries.
While every such activity has some degree of inherent danger and risk of injury, the likelihood of harm escalates significantly in the presence of a defective product. Whether it is a failed piece of safety gear – such as a bike helmet or trigger safety – or other defectively designed or built equipment, you may be seriously hurt.
Depending upon the particular circumstances of your accident, it may be appropriate to file a lawsuit against the company whose negligence resulted in your injury. Defective sport and recreational products threaten people of all ages.

Injuries that May Result
In many different sports, there is a significant investment in protective equipment. Helmets, shoulder pads, knee guards, and athletic cups represent just a small sampling of the variety of devices that may be required. If they are improperly built or designed, they may not fulfill their functional intent. This may result in injuries that should have been prevented, or reduced in severity, including:
- Eye injuries
- Fractured bones
- Severe lacerations
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burn injuries (with malfunctioning sport weapons)
