Sports & Recreation Liability

Football, hockey, baseball, softball, paintball and any number of league play activities can give rise to litigation involving significant injuries. Reed Armstrong has successfully defended and tried such cases on behalf of owners, clubs, coaches and managers.

Motorsports is extremely popular in Southern Illinois. Reed, Armstrong has represented all manner of racing venues from simple county dirt tracks to NASCAR racing ovals. Motorsports claims can feature a multitude of possible injuries from bystanders being struck by airborne objects to personal protective equipment for racers and inspection of racing vehicles. Because of the high speeds involved in motorsport activities, significant bodily injury and death claims are not uncommon. We have succeeded in defending releases in both the trial courts and the Appellate Courts to bar negligence claims against racetrack owners, sponsors and operators.
