Soccer Goal Safety Law Prevents Tragic Injuries, Death

Eight years ago, a moveable soccer goal tipped over onto the head of Zach Tran, killing him.  A new Illinois law will prevent serious injuries and deaths like Zach’s.  The new law is called the Moveable Soccer Goal Safety Act and was recently signed into law.

The new law requires current owners of moveable soccer goals to create a soccer goal safety and education policy that outlines how the organization will specifically address the safety issues associated with movable soccer goals.  It also requires all soccer goals sold in the future be tip resistant.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a tipping soccer goal or any defective product, call us at Dixon Law Office at (888) 354-9880 or contact us by email here.  We are here to help.
