Fort Lauderdale Cheerleading Accidents

Fort Lauderdale Cheerleading Accidents LawyerDance Competition Injury Attorney

Cheerleading is considered one of the most dangerous sports involving young people today. A recent study by the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research found that cheerleading is the number one cause of injury in young female athletes. Cheerleading-related injuries in high schools account for nearly two thirds of all severe injuries in female athletes. In college, that figure increases to more than 70%.

One reason for the sharp increase in cheerleading injuries is the nature of the sport, and the dramatic increase in "flyers." “Flyers,” usually the smallest cheerleaders in the squad, are tossed into the air to perform stunts and acrobatics. These stuntwomen depend on other young and equally inexperienced cheerleaders – called the “safety net” - to catch, cushion, and prevent them from flying right into the ground. Unfortunately, coaches and school administrators often times turn a blind eye to the fact that the girls making up the safety net are too small and poorly trained to do their jobs.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
