There has rarely been a football story that makes news in all social circles as the case involving the NFL and Tom Brady. Every news station, whether it be ESPN, CNN, FOX or E!News, was talking about the Court decision issued by Judge Burman in New York on this matter.
The ramifications of the decision of Judge Burman can be reflected back into our everyday lives on a very important matter that we at Abrahamsen, Conaboy, and Abrahamsen, P.C. see on a regular basis in our car accident practice. Every single day we are helping victims of car accidents. One of the first things that we have to review is the contract of insurance that our clients had with their own insurance company.
As in Tom Brady’s case, the Judge had to review the union contract to determine what rights the NFL and Tom Brady had for this particular issue. It appeared clear to the Judge that both sides had negotiated a contract and the rights were clearly outlined. He then found the NFL overstepped those bounds. Similarly, in our car accident practice, our clients become Tom Brady and the insurance companies are like the NFL. There will be a fight from day one to define what rights and protections an injured person has in a car accident (even with their own insurance company who is supposed to protect them!) You will need a good lawyer to guide you through the details of your auto insurance contract.
We at Abrahamsen, Conaboy, and Abrahamsen fight through the insurance contracts to make sure that our clients are not improperly deprived of the rights they are owed from the insurance companies. If you have been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, call us today!
