Negligence And The Voluntary Nature Of Sports And Other External Factors Leading to Accidents

Given most sporting and recreational activities’ voluntary nature, it’s crucial to establish how someone else’s actions are negligent. Skateboarding, snowboarding, ski accidents, and mountain climbing present different legal issues than playing a pick-up game of basketball. However, its voluntary nature does not mean that organizers aren’t held responsible.

Other factors are resulting in your injury, especially those factors that are out of your control. We enumerated different factors leading to accidents such as:

  • The hazardous playing environment (uneven surfaces, slippery conditions, and unsafe pieces of equipment);
  • The effectivity and rigor of officiating officials (like referees) conducting the game;
    The rules of the game;
  • The quality and style of coaching a player receives before and during the game; and,
  • The pressure to play the game though he or she is experiencing fatigue beforehand or already has an existing injury (due to another accident) and muscular imbalances.

These factors may conclude that the game’s organizers, the officiating members of the game, your coach, and whoever influenced you to play though you are unwell can be held responsible for your accident.


At The Cartwright Law Firm, our San Francisco Sports & Recreation Accident Attorneys establish liability by carefully reviewing the game’s rules. When someone goes beyond the game rules or fails to provide an accident-free environment for competitive play, they can be held liable for their negligence.
