After suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), many victims also see a loss of income as they can’t work following the accident. In these situations, you need a legal professional to advocate for you to recover damages. The good news is that it costs you nothing to explore your options.
How Free Consultations Work in Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
When you are already dealing with the effects of a brain injury, the last thing you want to worry about is coming up with extra money. Whether you were in a car crash, workplace accident, or slip and fall, we know how seriously a TBI can impact every aspect of your life—from physical repercussions to cognitive issues.
That’s why our experienced traumatic brain injury team provides free consultations for potential personal injury clients. The initial meeting lets us know the specifics of the case and helps you decide if you want to move forward with a lawsuit. Here’s how it works:
- Read through our FAQs or free book on filing a brain injury lawsuit if you have questions about the process or aren’t sure if you need an attorney.
- Call or message us online to provide basic details of your injury.
- Receive a call back to schedule a time for your free consultation.
- Bring relevant information to the initial meeting, such as medical records, police reports on the accident, photos from the scene, eyewitness contact info, etc.
- Details from the meeting are used to determine if you have a case and if The Mottley Law Firm is the best fit for your situation.
If we agree to move forward together, the cases we take for traumatic brain injury clients are paid on a contingency fee. That means we don’t get paid unless you get a positive outcome through a settlement or a court judgment. We have a vested interest in representing you to the best of our abilities and ensuring you are taken care of after an injury.
Financial Repercussions of Failing to Contact an Attorney Quickly
Deciding to hire a Richmond brain injury attorney is more than just a matter of upfront costs or contingency fees. Virginia has a statute of limitations on personal injury cases, which means you are limited in the timeframe to pursue compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering. If you wait too long to act, your ability to hold the negligent party responsible for your injury can be lost.
Besides filing paperwork within deadlines ahead of the statute of limitations, an attorney’s help is crucial in avoiding common mistakes. Unfortunately, it is all too easy for TBI victims to fall prey to insurance tactics that can prevent them from fully recovering financially. An attorney can assist by handling communications with insurers to make sure they only receive the medical information they need.
A skilled lawyer can also help by finding the best source of recovering damages, which may not always be the person or company you expect. Depending on how your injury occurred and who is ultimately responsible, there could potentially be additional sources of compensation to consider.
Besides their role in thoroughly investigating the accident and dealing with insurance, you want an attorney who is capable of effectively telling your story in court. The Mottley Law Firm has a long history of successfully standing up for victims after catastrophic accidents. We take a limited number of cases each year so we can focus on each individual client’s needs and provide the specialized help necessary for your unique situation.
