More than any other state, California is home to 18 professional sports teams. San Diego is home to the Padres and has other high-level professional teams, including soccer, lacrosse, rugby, tennis, and indoor football. College, high school, and other academic-level sporting events take place weekly. Golf, tennis, horse racing, and even drag racing and NASCAR racing are favorite sports on any given weekend. But you don't expect to get a sporting event injury when you attend a game.

If the responsible party fails to take steps to ensure patrons' safety, they may become liable if someone is injured.
Even if the owner or operator is not liable for your injuries, there may be other parties involved, such as:
An injury at a sporting venue could involve more than one liable party and may or may not include the owner.
