Medicolegal issues in sports medicine.
This article reviews medicolegal issues in sports medicine. Nonmusculoskeletal medical conditions discussed include cardiac abnormalities, heat illness, and concussion in the athlete. Musculoskeletal injuries with the greatest potential for litigation, knee dislocation, and cervical spine trauma, are also reviewed. We provide legal case examples and discuss evaluation and treatment strategies to assist the medical team in the care of athletes.
