What Should I Look for When Hiring a Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney?

After suffering a car wreck, whiplash, slip and fall or trucking injury, you or a loved one may suffer severe traumatic brain injuries. Although concussions are usually minor and don’t require as much medical treatment, other traumatic brain injuries can change your life forever. Many TBI’s result in high medical bills, months or years of lost wages and more. Injured persons may need years of rehabilitation, around the clock care or never fully recover. When this happens, it’s important you find the right Wichita lawyer to handle your case.

Because traumatic brain injuries can be serious and complex, building a personal injury case can be difficult…with the wrong attorney. Therefore, it’s important to look for the right qualities in the attorney you choose to represent you or your family in the Courtroom.

First, it’s important to remember that like any personal injury case, the insurance company will try to settle and lowball you. They will try to pay you as little as possible, and without a skilled attorney to fight for you, it’s difficult to handle their sneaky tactics.

Next, because the insurance company will fight you tooth and nail, it may take more than just your attorney to prove your case. At Ray Hodge & Associates, we will locate Doctors who specialize in current brain injury diagnosis and treatment. Because brain injury is a highly specialized field, local Doctors may not always have the skill and experience that a specialist from a place like the Mayo clinic might have. Our goal is to make sure you get the best medical care possible from Doctor’s who understand your injury. With a clear cut explanation of a specialist, it’s difficult for the insurance company to deny the extent of your injuries.

Lastly, you should look for an attorney that won’t settle with the insurance company for pennies on the dollar, but rather is ready and willing to go to Court. If the insurance company knows that your attorney has a record for not going to trial, they will offer a low settlement. But if your attorney has a reputation of not settling for less and taking the case to trial, they will not want to risk the big verdict.
