What You Should Look For In a Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Posted By Caputo & Van Der Walde || 17-May-2016

After suffering a traumatic brain injury, knowing who you can turn to for help could be the biggest difference between you living comfortably or you struggling to get by each day. But who do you lean on for legal support? You probably know you need to file a lawsuit against the liable party for full compensation but how can you identify a great traumatic brain injury attorney in the multitude of personal injury lawyers out there?

Luckily, there are a few common traits that you should be looking for in a traumatic brain injury (TBI) attorney, which are:

  1. Experience: Nothing leads to perfection better than practice and experience. This is true of all things in life, including being a civil litigation attorney. Find a team with decades of legal and trial experience and you have found a team of lawyers who can handle anything.
  2. Case results: Being in practice for years is good, but doing so and winning big cases for clients is even better. You should be looking for a traumatic brain injury lawyer that can show you large settlements and verdict amounts they have won in the past.
  3. Testimonials: What is the real benefit of retaining winning representation if the entire process is stressful or feels impersonal? Check out an attorney’s testimonials from past clients for some useful insight as to how they treat the people they represent.
  4. Awards: A TBI attorney might be able to tell you that they are good, and so can their clients, but you want to be objective in your search for legal counsel. There are plenty of official organizations that review and recognize the best attorneys in the country. Find one with numerous accolades, awards, and memberships.
