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
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
