Sports is an important part of American culture, a truth that is never more evident than in the fall when baseball is moving towards its championship and football, college and professional, is just beginning. Far too frequently, however, we are seeing stories of fans turning violent. We love our teams, but our San Francisco sports lawyer and his team find this type of violence completely unacceptable. Holding the perpetrators of spectator violence accountable serves the dual purposes associated with all civil injury claims – prevention of future harm and compensation for the injured.
