Car Accident Damages

Car Accident

Car Accident Attorneys often deal with a number of questions when people that have been injured in a Car Accident come to meet them.  However, the question everyone has for their Car Accident Attorneys is how much is my Car Accident case worth.  If you meet with Car Accident Attorneys and they are ready to tell you exactly how much your case is worth without doing anything more than talking to you about your Car Accident you should be leery.

The reason that Car Accident Attorneys are often hesitant to give you a value of the case, especially early on, is that there can be many variables that go into determining the value of your Car Accident case.  First and foremost Car Accident Attorneys will look at the medical treatment and medical bills that come about due to your Car Accident injuries and if you are still in treatment when you ask your Car Accident Attorneys what they think the value of your case is, they will not be able to tell you.  Also, Car Accident Attorneys will have to look at other factors that may be difficult to value such as the need for future medical treatment, lost income and of course, the ubiquitous pain and suffering.

However, there is also the issue of the insurer; if they value your case differently you may find yourself in a difficult negotiation where you may instruct your Car Accident Attorneys to give up some of the perceived value of your case in order to avoid additional costs and and time.  In all, it can be very difficult for you Car Accident Attorneys to give you an accurate forecast of what kind of damages to expect from your Car Accident.

Sports Injuries

Personal Injury

Personal Injury Attorneys will, from time to time, have prospective clients contact them about injuries they suffered while they were playing sports.  As with any physical activity, sports inherently expose participants to an increased risk of injury and that coupled with the weekend warrior mentality of many adult athletes can lead to sometimes serious injuries.

Unfortunately, in most instances Personal Injury Attorneys may be hard-pressed to help these prospective clients recover any damages for the injury they suffered as participants in an organized sports league.  In most cases your Personal Injury Attorneys will be hampered by the fact that you were a voluntary participant in the sporting activity and you implicitly or most likely explicitly assumed the risk associated with the sport.

However, that does not mean that Personal Injury Attorneys are completely unable to do anything when a sports injury is involved.  In certain cases Personal Injury Attorneys may be able to obtain damages on behalf of their client; one example of this would be where the injury was caused by the outrageous conduct of another participant, this could be reckless physicality that has gone well beyond the bounds of the rules of the league.
