Hiring An Experienced TBI Lawyer

Hiring An Experienced TBI LawyerWithout a doubt, one of the most difficult decisions a family has to make is whether or not they need to hire a lawyer, especially when it involves a loved who has recently suffered a traumatic brain injury or TBI. However, it is not just the individual that suffers when they incur this type of injury.  The entire family suffers.  Those injuries can be financially and medically devastating, not to mention physically and socially.

In cases such as these where an individual is at fault for the other person’s brain injury, it is critical that the injured person’s family seek out and retain legal representation by an experienced and knowledgeable TBI lawyer.  If the family has any hope of receiving proper compensation and damages, this is essential.  In turn, that compensation is the best possible outcome that can be attained where long-term adjustment and recovery are concerned.

Questions To Ask The Attorneys You Consult With

The family members of the injured victim must be knowledgeable of personal injury law as it relates to traumatic brain injuries and the type of attorney that they will hire.  They need to understand what their loved one’s injuries entail and be knowledgeable of the legal process involved as well.  There are specific questions they need to ask each of TBI lawyers that they consult with during the decision-making and hiring process.  These questions should pertain to the attorney’s education, experience, general background, and qualifications.

The family should also focus on the TBI lawyer’s intentions where handling their particular case is concerned.  In other words, what are his or her plans for handling their specific case? This should be based on the individual’s injuries and the amount of damage that resulted.  It should also be based the family’s special circumstances that ultimately could result from those injuries.  Ask the attorney the following 12 questions:

  • Besides you, who else will be working on our TBI case and when can we meet them?

  • How long and where have you practiced law?

  • How long will it take to reach a decision in our case?

  • How much time can you allot for our particular case?

  • What are the consequences if we lose in court?

  • What do you estimate will be the costs of litigation in our particular case?

  • What experience do you have with TBI cases and what were the results?

  • When and where did you attend law school?

  • When will you file our case?

  • Will our case most likely be a jury trial?

  • Will there be any arbitration or mediation, or will we have to go to court?

  • Will you assist us in preparing for our depositions?

These are 12 of the most common questions that clients ask a TBI lawyer.  However, you may have others.  If so, don’t be afraid to ask them.  The right attorney will provide you with honest answers, no matter what.  Additionally, It is not uncommon for TBI clients to be reluctant, if not somewhat embarrassed to ask some of the questions that they do.  So if this is the case, your reactions are completely normal.  Regardless, the questions listed above will enable you to select the best TBI lawyer for your case.

Your attorney may have to ask you certain questions that require you to reveal some very intimate and personal details.  Do not be offended by these questions as this is normal when any experienced, successful trial attorney is attempting to evaluate your case and determine how to proceed in order to achieve the best possible outcome.  Remember, no matter what an attorney’s area of specialty is, they will always have your best interests in mind – not theirs.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
