Connecticut Personal Injury: When Foul Balls Run Afoul
A woman was struck by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium last August and four days later succumbed to her injuries. The official cause of death, as ruled by the Los Angeles County Coroner, was an intracranial hemorrhage from a baseball.
Here are some safety precautions you can take if you plan on attending a ball game this spring or summer:
- Choose your seats carefully. We all covet the closest seats to the action, but they might not always be the safest.
- Be alert. If you are sitting in seats that may potentially be in the line of stray objects, always pay attention to the action.
- Watch your step. Stadium seating has a lot of stairs and landings. Keep an eye on the terrain.
- Watch for liquids. Sporting events are long and fans get thirsty. It’s easy for liquids to spill on the floors. Don’t slip and fall!
- Stay seated. If you are seated in the upper levels at a stadium, walking (or cheering) space can be at a premium.
