Sport and Recreation Accidents

Sport and recreation activities play an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Unfortunately, participants in sport and recreation activities occasionally suffer serious personal injuries as a result of the negligence of the operator of the facility, other participants, or the coaches involved in training the athlete or participant. When coaches, staff and other participants fail to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of others and injuries occur as a result, the injured party has the right to sue for compensation for their sport injury.

As many athletes know, minor injuries are often common in sports and recreational activities. However, when you are seriously injured in a sports accident due to the negligence of another party, that should never be tolerated. You are entitled to recover compensation for your serious sport and recreation injuries.

How McLeish Orlando Sport Injury Lawyers Can Help?

Investigation and Information Gathering

Once retained, our sports injury lawyers immediately investigate the circumstances of the accident including hiring investigators and experts to attend at the accident site to collect evidence. This is important because sports and recreation operators often conduct investigations immediately after the accident to prepare for anticipated litigation. By contacting a lawyer immediately, you will ensure that all the appropriate evidence is preserved and collected on your behalf.

What sets McLeish Orlando Toronto Sport Injury Lawyers Apart?

Experienced Sport Injury Trial Lawyers

Our firm has a reputation for its outstanding trial experience. We prepare every case as if it is going to trial, and we take every step required to ensure our clients receive the full compensation they are entitled to. Insurance company representatives and insurance defence lawyers know this. We are often able to reach a fair settlement long before trial. When we believe that our clients are entitled to more than what is being offered for a settlement, we are always prepared to proceed to trial and advocate on their behalf.

Contingency Fee Retainer Agreements

We work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid when your claim is successfully resolved. We then receive an agreed upon percentage of the funds you receive as payment for our services.

We will hire and pay the experts that are needed to develop the evidence in your case, be they doctors, engineers or life care planners.  You will never be asked to contribute to the cost of developing evidence in the case or pay anything towards legal fees until a settlement or judgment is received.  We use these agreements to ensure that every person who is seriously injured in a car accident can access justice, not just those who have money.

Quality Over Quantity– Toronto Sport Injury Lawyers

At McLeish Orlando, we believe in providing top quality service to a smaller number of seriously injured clients, rather than taking on as many clients as we can. This means that we selectively consider every potential client that contacts our office and only accept clients that are seriously injured. By limiting our number of clients, we ensure that we can spend the time, energy, and resources required to provide you with the best possible service and results.

  • Partner
  • Associate Lawyer
  • Accident Benefits Coordinator
  • Law Clerk
