It's a good idea to know what you're getting into when you sign up for a sports program or participate in a sports event. It may seem like good, clean fun, but there is a risk of serious injury in even the most fun sports. Golf injuries are very common, and often serious.
The extent of sports injuries is only recently becoming a common topic. Because of the problems faced in later life by some former professional football players and boxers, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurring as a result of constant blows to the head has become a nationally advertised and discussed phenomenon. Mild TBI is easily left undetected in the aftermath of an accident, because more obvious physical injuries such as broken bones take the forefront and a few small behavioral oddities or irregularities are easily overlooked. But these behavioral oddities can be permanent and limiting, and may damage a person for the rest of their life in very serious ways.
Don't just "walk it off" if you have been injured while playing sports. Get the same thorough checkup you would get if you have been injured in an auto or any other type of accident. Injuries that occur in sports can be just as serious and detrimental as any other type of injury, and can show up even later in life. Protect yourself and your finances from the possibility of an injury that manifests after settlement time has passed.

COMPLIMENTARY INITIAL TELEPHONE CONSULTATION
Some sports involve frequent violent contact, and because of this are inherently dangerous. Bodies collide. People get hurt. A very important legal issue in many sports injuries is whether or not the injured person "Assumed the Risk" of the injury. It means that if a person joins a sporting event knowing the risks and accepting them, either by participation or by actually signing a waiver or responsibility, the event organizers may not be legally responsible for any injuries that occur, and all medical bills and costs become the problem of the injured person.
