Professional athletes are no stranger to injury. Their craft requires compound body movements that puts high stress on muscles and limbs, and sometimes the best interests of the team means sacrificing a player’s body. Athletes generally accept that the team is not at fault when they are injured in the course of playing, as players make their own decisions and are aware of the inherent risks of the sport. However, in this strange case a professional baseball player is in fact suing the Chicago White Sox for an injury he sustained during a game. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to monetary relief. Act now and contact an expert personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R.

Dustin Fowler, who in 2017 played outfield for the New York Yankees, was playing at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago. While chasing a foul ball, he hit the top of the wall and injured himself. Fowler claims the White Sox did not adequately pad the wall, and that they have been aware of the deficiency for some time. There was also an exposed electric box that apparently caused injuries to Fowler that he would not have sustained had the box been properly covered. The plaintiff”s attorneys are John Bailly and Michael Sorich. A federal judge recently denied the defendant’s motion to dismiss and ruled that the case can go forward.
