Rising Hockey Player Sues Reckless Coach
While participating in a hockey game in Toledo, Ohio, our clients’ son was significantly injured during a play at an intense hockey game.
As our clients’ son attempted to make a play, he was checked by another player. While this happened, a reckless coach of the opposing team suddenly opened the bench door for no reason. This opening resulted in our clients’ child being checked into a dangerous area of exposed wall.
Immediately after this play, the injuries sustained by our clients’ son were thought to be a broken clavicle. After returning home from medical treatment, our clients’ son continued to experience severe stomach pains and was rushed back to the ER. These pains were due to a severe laceration on the player’s left kidney, discovered at the emergency room.
Our clients’ son endured expensive medical treatment, missed classes at school, and was unable to participate in his favorite pastime, hockey, for the remainder of the season. The medical complications from this incident are permanent in nature and will require further medical care.
After working with our client, a lawsuit was initiated against the reckless coach and the responsible Hockey Association, Plymouth Canton Hockey Association.
This much deserved relief will help our client’s’ son get back on the ice and move on from this act of recklessness.
