Find the Right Attorney
The other day I was having a discussion with some friends, and we were discussing the importance of hiring the right attorney if you sustain a traumatic brain injury in an accident. I told them, here in Orlando, it’s extremely important to hire the right attorney, not only for the legal consequences, but also because the right attorney can identify when there may be a traumatic brain injury. Many of the symptoms from a traumatic brain injury appear very mild at first, so it requires someone experienced in handling these types of cases, often, to identify them and, then, to help the person seek the proper medical treatment so they can undergo the proper medical care and testing to identify if in fact there is a traumatic brain injury. This comes from knowledge and experience over many years of dealing, specifically, with traumatic brain injuries.

Do NOT Speak with the Insurance Company
Last week, I had a new client contact me and ask if they should speak to the insurance company, with respect to a recent traumatic brain injury that they had sustained. I told them absolutely not. Talking to the insurance company without hiring a knowledgeable lawyer is never a good idea. It is especially a bad idea when you have sustained a traumatic brain injury because you’re not going to be prepared to deal with the insurance company who is asking questions solely for their benefit.
When you have a traumatic brain injury, you have an impairment, and that’s where you need a knowledgeable, well-trained attorney to protect and help you. If you’ve been injured and suffered a traumatic brain injury, please contact us. We’re here for you.
Consider Settlement Offers
Last week, I was speaking to a client after we had received the first offer from an insurance company. The client asked if it is ever a good idea to take the insurance company’s first offer with respect to a traumatic brain injury case here in Orlando. The answer is almost always no. The insurance companies are there, again, to protect their insured and to pay as little money possible to resolve the case. They are not there to offer money to compensate the injured individual fully and fairly, and that’s why it is extremely important to hire a knowledgeable, experienced trial lawyer, someone that will properly work up the case from the very beginning and is not afraid to take the insurance company to trial if they do not offer full and fair compensation.
