Who Owns The Pickleball Court?

The great weather in the Los Angeles area is ideal for pickleball throughout the year. And as the sport’s popularity has grown, towns and cities have been eager to install pickleball courts for public use. You might also have a few neighborhood courts managed and maintained by the homeowners association. Knowing who owns and maintains the pickleball court where you were injured is vital in determining who could be responsible for your injuries and medical bills. Once you know the owner, you and your legal experts at DTLA Law Group can likely move forward with a lawsuit for your damages and injuries under the premises liability laws.

How Premise Liability Applies To Pickleball Court Injuries

Premise liability applies to all properties and all property owners. The laws require any property to be maintained in a safe and hazard-free manner. For example, in the case of your home, you need to keep the sidewalks in good condition and free of debris that could cause a guest to fall. In the case of an office building or a parking lot, there are additional rules about access and keeping the property safe and functional. And if you own a pickleball court, there are expectations for the safety and function of the court and surrounding area.

What Can You Expect From A Pickleball Court?

A pickleball court’s owner should focus on providing players with a safe area to play the sport. The safety zone should also include other features near the court, including seating, trash receptacles, lighting if the court is open at night and clear and safe access to and from the court. If there is more than one court, fencing would also be expected to be in good repair. And the grounds surrounding the pickleball court and walkways should be free of hazards, such as large holes, tree debris, or other hazards.

Some examples of fair expectations by a player include:

  • A court surface that is free of damage or irregularities such as large cracks, low areas, holes, or an eroding surface
  • Any fencing around the court area or used to separate the courts should be sturdy enough to support a player who might fall into or against the fence during play
  • The courts and surrounding area should be free of debris, litter, or other items that could obscure a hazard, such as a hole in the ground or transition from one paved surface to another, including steps, curbs, or ramps

As a pickleball player, when you arrive at a court that is open to the public, you should be able to assume that the court is safe for play and that surrounding features like seating are functional unless otherwise marked as closed or unsafe. If you have suffered an injury playing pickleball due to the condition of the court or surrounding features, don’t hesitate to get in touch with DTLA Law Group to review the details of the incident during a free consultation. We will help you understand how the owner of the pickleball court could be responsible for your injuries, the cost of your medical treatment, and more.

When Is An Injury Part Of The Game?

Many people get confused when trying to determine if their injury was part of the game and the inherent risk of playing pickleball or if there has been negligence on the part of the court owners. Below are examples of injuries that are considered occurrences that are part of the game:

  • Twisting an ankle because you stepped on a ball
  • Falling because you leaned or lunged to hit a ball and lost your footing
  • Slipping and falling when trying to change direction or stop suddenly to hit the ball

By contrast, the following list of injuries and accidents are more likely to be due to negligence on the part of the pickleball court owner:

  • You ran into or leaned against the fence after running to hit a ball, and the fence collapsed, causing injuries
  • You sat on a bench near the pickleball court, and the seat broke, dumping you to the ground and causing injuries
  • You ran to play a ball near the edge of the paved court surface but stepped on a piece of protruding metal fence post and fell, resulting in a broken wrist

If you have suffered an accident due to poor court conditions, visibly obscured safety hazards, or damage to the court surface or features nearby, contact the pickleball court injury attorneys at DTLA Law Group. We will guide you in securing the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

What Is My Pickleball Court Injury Lawsuit Worth?

The team at DTLA Law Group is happy to help you estimate the value of your pickleball injury lawsuit. For this process, we gather data including:

  • The amount of your current medical bills and any future bills for medication, treatment, therapy, or rehabilitation of your injuries
  • Any lost wages if you could not work during your recovery and for any missed work due to medical appointments and care
  • A dollar amount for the pain and suffering you endured
  • Possible punitive damages
  • The amount of your legal expenses

All of these items are evaluated and combined with any other accident-related expenses you have incurred due to the injuries. Therefore, the total will be a reasonable estimate for the value of your pickleball court injury lawsuit.
