What Is Sports Medicine Malpractice?
While engaging in sports and recreational activities is fun and safe most of the time, when someone suffers a head, joint or other injury, it is important that he or she be diagnosed and treated in a timely and medically efficient manner. There are an estimated 1.6 million to 3.8 million sports-related concussion injuries per year. And undoubtedly, there are millions of orthopedic and other sports and recreation-related injuries as well. These can occur in a variety of activities, including:
- baseball and softball
- riding powered recreational vehicles such as dune buggies, go-carts, and mini bikes
- playground activities
- horseback riding
When an orthopedist or other doctor, nurse, hospital, or any other medical professional acts negligently when treating a sports or sports-related injury or condition, resulting in injury, harm or death to the patient, sports medical malpractice may have occurred. Doctors are expected to practice and treat patients in accordance with the accepted standard of care in their field of medicine. When a doctor fails to do so, he or she can be held liable for damages under New York medical malpractice laws.
