It is likely that you will have seen T-ball played on American sitcoms or films; inspired by
both baseball and softball, two of the most popular sports in the USA, T-ball is generally viewed as an introductory sport, played by youngsters who want to perfect their ‘swing skills’. Due to the nature of the sport and the typical age of the players, incidents while playing T-ball often do occur, leading to myriad sport-related accidents and injuries.
While slips, trips and falls are common accidents which occur across most sports, each and
every activity presents sport-specific accidents and injuries, which is also true of incidents while playing T-ball.
Common incidents while playing T-ball
Although everyone who suffers a sporting injury suffers an entirely individual experience, there are some common incidents while playing T-ball to be aware of to help minimise the risk of T-ball accidents and injuries occurring.
Common T-ball injuries include, but are not limited to:
- contusions and abrasions
- strains and sprains
- head injuries, including concussion
- dental injuries
- internal injuries
Most of these injuries are caused by trips and falls or T-ball equipment including bats, balls or the tee itself.
Claiming compensation for incidents while playing T-ball
If you, or your child, have been injured due to incidents while playing T-ball through no fault of your own, Accident Advice Helpline can help you determine if you have a case that is eligible to claim personal injury compensation.
Depending on the nature of your accident, if you sustained injury due to poor grounds maintenance, defective equipment or inadequate training or supervision, for example, it could be that a third party is liable for the harm and distress that you, or your child, have endured.
So long as the accident in question occurred within the last three years and you are able to provide evidence in support of injury and third party liability, Accident Advice Helpline are likely to be able to assist you with the claims process.
