I still remember my accident like it was yesterday. One minute I was driving my daughter to school and the next I was waking up in a hospital bed. It was frustrating to deal with the emotional trauma of forgetting an entire week of my life, in addition to stressing about my small child. Fortunately, we were both able to recover, but it wasn't easy walking dealing with the medical bills that accompanied the accident. I found myself struggling with things as simple as answering the phone, because I was nervous about dealing with another insurance adjuster. Fortunately, by working with a lawyer, I was able to make sense of my situation. I know that you can overcome difficult challenges too, which is why I shared my story on this website.
If you've been injured, then you may seek out a settlement case to receive compensation for both physical and emotional damages. A large part of your case may deal with something known as quality-of-life damages. These damages reflect the impact that the physical injury has had on your everyday life. If you are a board game enthusiast, then there are multiple financial impacts that a personal injury can have on your ability to play board games and stay involved in the hobby that you love. Browse through each of these impacts and learn how they can become a part of your settlement case.
Board Game Memberships & Tournaments
People who love to play board games have a lot of opportunities to enjoy these games with others that are just as passionate. Before your injury, you may have had paid memberships to board game clubs or special events like tournament and conventions. If you are forced to miss these activities, then you may have lost expenses. A lawyer can help you recover a number of these expenses through a settlement case. For example, if you have a yearly membership to a board game club, an attorney can help you calculate how much time in the club was left after the injury. They can include this total in your settlement case and help you receive compensation for those costs.
Adapted Board Games
Injuries to your arms, neck, or back can limit mobility and your ability to play board games with ease. Instead of giving up on the games all together, you have the ability to purchase adapted board games. These board games feature larger pieces that are easy to maneuver and will not cause too much strain on your injuries. If you were not injured, then these game purchases would not be needed. An attorney can add the cost of these games to your settlement case. It may not seem like a lot, but these purchases can add up over time and have a large impact on your case.
To help get you back to your original playing condition, you may need multiple physical therapy sessions. These sessions will help you relearn your fine motor skills. These skills are essential for grabbing parts, moving game pieces, and completing basic tasks like rolling dice. All of your physical therapy sessions will likely become a part of your personal injury case. Not only can they help prove how severe your injuries were, but you can seek compensation for any costs that were paid to attend the sessions.
By including these elements in your settlement case, you can still enjoy the hobby that you love while avoiding a negative impact on your bank account. Contact an attorney like those at Vick & Glantz, LLP to learn more about your options for collecting compensation.
