I was injured at Yankee Stadium. Can I sue?

The simple answer to this question is, "maybe." Some injuries sustained at ballparks aren't compensable. For example, if you get hit by a ball from a batter, you can't recover money from injuries. The same would apply in the case of a flying bat. This is because the law presumes that you know the risks associated with the activity that you're going to watch--in this case, a baseball game. However, if the injury comes from something other then a risk associated with the game, such as, an injury that comes from tripping and falling or from a seat breaking, then in these cases, such injuries may be recoverable.

Over the years, our firm has dealt with many cases involving injuries at Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, Nassau Coliseum, the Meadowlands, and Madison Square Garden. If you have sustained an injury at any one of these venues, please contact out Long Island lawyers for a courtesy case consultation.
