The Reflection and Countermeasures of University Sports Injury Accident

Wenjia CHEN


Sports injury accident is a common phenomenon in university physical education and extracurricular activities. In the proceedings of such cases, the court often makes a judgment on the principle of equitable liability in the case of no fault of both parties and these judgments lead to the heavy burden of universities, and block the development of sports activities. From the perspective of the legal relationship between students and universities, the nature of university sports injury accidents and the liability of tort liability, this paper insists on the application of fault responsibility principle in such injuries, clears the responsibility of all parties, and puts forward effective measures to reduce the occurrence of such accidents.
