Sports & Recreation

The Sports and Recreation group at Robson Forensic is comprised of coaches, trainers, university professors, facilities managers, and professionally endorsed athletes.

Sports & Recreational Injuries

Each year sports and recreation injuries account for more than one million emergency room visits in the United States. While many of these injuries are relatively minor, some portion of these injuries are serious, life altering events for the injured parties.

The sports and recreation experts at Robson Forensic are frequently engaged to investigate catastrophic sports injuries to determine how they occurred and whether or not they could have been prevented.

A Shared Responsibility for Safety

Leagues, coaches, athletes, and trainers have a shared responsibility to minimize participants’ risk of injury during sports and recreational activities. Our experts look at the actions of these parties within the context of each incident and compare those actions against established standards and best demonstrated industry practices.

Our experts are qualified to provide these technical opinions because they are actively involved in the coaching, participation, and administration of various competitive sports and recreational activities. In fact, our sports and recreation experts have coached and competed at every level of competition; they have managed recreational facilities, and have participated in the development of relevant safety standards.

Robson Forensic is the industry leading provider of forensic experts in sports and recreational injuries.

Our Sports and Recreation Experts Help to Determine:

  • Was the equipment and facility safely designed, used, and maintained?
  • Was equipment properly fitted?
  • Was the activity reasonably supervised and controlled?
  • Were participants provided with the necessary skills, tools and information to safely participate?
  • Did participants act reasonably?

Please explore the sports & recreation sub-practice pages for more information on this impressive group of forensic experts.
