Ohio court finds university not liable for hockey-puck injury

Posted on August 24th, 2013 No Comments

Ohio’s Court of Claims, in a ruling on Thursday, August 15, declared that a Southwest Ohio university cannot be held liable for the injuries a Connecticut woman sustained after being hit on the head by a stray hockey puck during pre-game warm-ups.

The judge ruled that Fairfield, Connecticut resident Emily Austin, who was wounded on Nov. 9, 2012 and who was asking for $200 from Miami University in Oxford to cover her medical insurance deductible, cannot do so as Austin should have been prepared to accept the risks of accidents occurring within the stadium, such as getting hit by a hockey puck, when she entered the arena.
