Litigation arising from injuries to students, athletes and even spectators during sporting events has become a growing field in New York law.  Our Firm focuses a substantial part of our practice defending against cases involving injuries to sporting participants and spectators of such events.  We have represented municipalities and private schools, clubs and other businesses in sports related injury litigation. These institutions have ranged from colleges, private religious schools, after school programs, local, regional and nationally recognized sports clubs and community groups and organizations. 

With our expertise in this field, we are able to evaluate a claim early, balance whether the injury was caused by a risk common to the specific sporting event or due to an increased risk created by negligence and then plot strategy accordingly.  We have found innovative means to bring about favorable resolutions, even in the most difficult of cases.  

Litigation in the field of sports law requires attorneys who are well versed on the changing legal developments.  SG attorneys have the experience in this area, and have proven results for our clients.
