Personal Injury Recorded Statements

Personal Injury

What many people do not realize before they speak with Personal Injury Attorneys is that in most instances your Personal Injury Attorneys do not deal directly with the party that caused your injury and often any damages you receive do not come from them personally.  Instead most of the work your Personal Injury Attorneys do is with the insurer of the party responsible for your Personal Injury and in most cases that is who is paying your damages.

Often after you have suffered a Personal Injury the insurer for the party at fault will request a recorded statement.  This is an informal interview where a representative of the insurance company will ask you questions about your accident, your injuries and the medical care that you required.  The interview can be done over the phone but in many instances the representative from the insurance company may conduct the recorded statement in person.  In any event it can be very helpful to have the representation of Personal Injury Attorneys before you give a recorded statement.

Despite the statement being informal, Personal Injury Attorneys can make sure that the interview does not become overbroad and spill over into areas that are irrelevant or inappropriate.  Also, the experience of Personal Injury Attorneys often serves to soothe any nerves that Personal Injury Clients may have about an impending Recorded Statement, as the process is often novel to them.

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.
