Chris Dixon

Founder and Managing Attorney

I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

There are more than 3.5 million reported sports injuries involving children ages 14 and younger every year in the United States, and 200,000 injury reports involving college athletes. While all sports can potentially cause injuries, high-impact sports such as football, basketball, and soccer ranked the highest in emergency visits in a study from 2009. It’s important that these reports are taken seriously because lasting damage such as ACL tears and bone injuries can affect the future performance of athletes. Some sports injuries can cause athletes to be unable to play sports at all, regardless of if it’s for pleasure or professionally.

Common Sports Injuries

While there are a number of ways that an athlete can be injured while participating in sports, there are some that stand out as being more common such as sprains, tears, and fractures. An athlete could pull a groin or leg muscle, tear their ACL in their knee or stretch a tendon too far, or land on their arm or wrist the wrong way and suffer a break after being pushed by another player. All of these injuries require a recovery period which keeps an athlete from playing for a bit. If you or your child has suffered sports injuries, it is important that you seek immediate help from a medical professional to ensure a quick and effective recovery. After seeking medical attention, a Sports Injuries Lawyer should be consulted about your injuries. They can recover damages for any financial hardship you and your family has endured due to the sports injury. Compensatory damages include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.

How to Prevent Sports Injuries

An estimate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that half of all child sports-related injuries can be prevented. To ensure that you or your child are being safe when playing sports, here are some tips to avoid injuries:

  • It’s important to use proper technique while playing sports. If you aren’t using proper technique, you could cause physical harm in either yourself or other players.
  • Be aware of your actions. Accidentally running into a player or diving headfirst towards home plate while playing baseball or softball can cause serious bone, head, and other damage.
  • Always be sure to wear proper gear when playing sports. Mouthpieces, protective cups, and various other protective equipment can help a lot in preventing injuries.
  • Don’t play through pain. Consulting a doctor when pain or discomfort first arises is essential to prevent more serious and potentially permanent damage from occurring.

Why Should I Choose a Sports Injury Lawyer to Represent Me?

A Missouri Sports Injuries Attorney can protect you and your family during a difficult period such as when you or your child have sustained a life-changing injury. They can make sure that you receive any compensation or recoveries that you are entitled to for your case, and will protect you against large insurance companies that will try and get you to settle for less than you deserve by attempting to get a statement from you too soon after the accident. By choosing Dixon, our lawyers will deal with the insurance company for you. We have the experience and knowledge to get the most compensation from the negligent company. We aim to make this confusing time easier for you by utilizing a contingency plan. Contingency means that if we don’t win the case, you don’t pay for our legal services.
