What is a sporting pursuit law?

A sporting pursuit legal claim is a legal action taken by an individual who has suffered an injury or harm while participating in a sporting activity. The claim seeks compensation for damages incurred as a result of the injury, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
