What Do Car Accident Claims and Football Have in Common?

Dan Brian   |  October 20, 2016   |  

Car accident claims and football have more in common than you might think. Consider these similarities, and be sure to contact an experienced North Carolina car accident attorney if you are involved in a crash.


Just as the first part of building a great football team is recruiting, so is recruiting a great lawyer from the get-go to aid you during the car accident claims process. You should search for an attorney who is experienced with car accident cases, has a track record of success, and works on a contingency fee basis.

Pre-Game Prep

The second part of an accident claim that is similar to football is the pre-game preparation. In relation to a car accident claim, this means investigating and developing a case. At the law offices of Riddle & Brantley, LLP, we have the resources and experience necessary, and collaborate with numerous experts to help investigate and build your case.

Opening Kickoff

Once you have decided to pursue a car accident claim and have conducted a little research about which lawyer to work with, it is important to schedule a free case consultation. During the consultation, you will have an opportunity to ask your lawyer any questions about your case, as well as learn about the lawyer and their experience.


Many people who are involved in car accidents suffer injuries that not only cause physical harm, but psychological harm as well. As such, part of life after a car accident may involve “coaching,” or in this case, counseling. Counseling may be useful for managing stress and moving forward in life, as well as garnering information about how to pursue a claim and recover compensation.

Offense & Defense – It’s Game Time!

Finally, remember that building a claim and getting paid the settlement that you deserve is often an uphill battle. Much like a football game, if you want to emerge victorious, you need to put your best foot forward and be prepared for surprises along the way. Advancing your arguments and countering the other party’s will be a critical part of the process, especially if there are disagreements (as there often are) about fault or damages suffered.
