Personal Injury Lawsuit Throws A Curveball at New Jersey Youth Baseball Player

by Patrick McNamara on July 10, 2012

A Manchester Township woman who was hit in the face by an errant baseball is seeking $500,000 in personal injuries and damages from the Little League player who threw the ball. Although the New Jersey lawsuit may sound frivolous, it highlights the liability risks faced by youth sports organizations and municipalities.

The lawsuit claims that Matthew Migliaccio was negligent and careless by “engaging in inappropriate physical and/or sporting activity” near the plaintiff, causing her to be struck by the baseball. She alleges that she suffered multiple facial fractures, underwent reconstructive surgery, and still suffers headaches two years after the injury.
