PHOENIX, AZ, September 14, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When you buy a ticket to a sporting event, the excitement and thrill of the game can distract anyone from thinking about the possibility of an injury.

• If a fight broke out among the players and spilled onto the stands and injured a fan, the sporting event location may be held responsible for the spectator's injuries because that type of injury is not considered foreseeable happening when entering the facility.
• If the stadium neglected to repair a railing or a seat and you or a loved one are injured as a result, they may be held responsible.
• If the protective screen protecting foul balls is cracked or broken and spectator is injured because of it, the stadium can be responsible.

Sporting event facilities are supposed to ensure the safety of their patrons. Neglecting to repair damages that can be deemed hazardous should not be the responsibility of the individuals injured by them. Other unfeasible ways of getting injured at sporting events should not be the patron's responsibility either. These types of cases are complicated and most sporting event facilities will take any measure to get out of paying compensation for their injured patrons. An Arizona personal injury attorney is knowledgeable and experience to handle your case and can help you receive the compensation you deserve. For more information: www.solomonrelihan.com
