Our traumatic brain injury attorneys in Richfield are committed to helping victims of serious car accidents, slip and falls, and other incidents get the medical assistance and wage replacement they’re entitled to. If you’ve suffered brain trauma in an accident you didn’t cause, our team can file a claim on your behalf.
The team at 1LAW has won countless high-value settlements for a number of individuals dealing with severe brain injuries. They’ll make sure the individual or entity responsible for your injury is held liable for the damage their senseless actions have caused.
A traumatic brain injury is likely to affect your life in many different ways. Since every brain injury accident is unique, there are a variety of damages that may or may not apply to your case. Depending on the losses you’ve suffered, you may qualify for several or more of the following damages:
The at-fault party’s insurance company is the main obstacle between you and the damages you need. While the purpose of an insurance company is to compensate those who’ve been injured by its clients, insurers are not always eager to fulfill their responsibilities.
In many cases, insurance providers will offer lowball settlements or attempt to find a reason to deny a legitimate claim outright. Our traumatic brain injury lawyers have managed cases in Richfield for years. They’re familiar with all the tricks that insurers play to reduce their liability and avoid paying a fair amount.
Your lawyer will refer to evidence and facts that undeniably prove that the at-fault party was the main cause behind the accident you were injured in. They’ll spend as much time at the negotiating table as they have to in order to convince insurance adjusters that you deserve a fair settlement.
While it’s likely that your claim won’t escalate into a personal injury lawsuit, there’s always the chance that insurance negotiations won’t go as planned, leaving you with no choice but to file a civil suit. If that happens, your attorney will need to get your traumatic brain injury lawsuit filed with the Richfield court system before Utah’s filing deadline.
According to Utah Code Ann. § 78B-2-307, traumatic brain injury victims have four years from the date of their accident to file a lawsuit. In the unlikely event that a lawsuit becomes your only option, you’ll thank yourself for having contacted an attorney soon after your accident.
That’s because hiring a lawyer right away gives them the time they need to get your lawsuit filed on time. Waiting too long to hire legal counsel could cause you to miss the deadline and have your suit thrown out. If you’ve delayed legal action for a while and believe you’ve missed your filing date, an attorney can determine whether or not you qualify for a time extension.
The team at 1LAW understands how expensive medical care can be, which is why we use our relationships with local doctors and hospitals in Richfield to get our clients discounts. We call this initiative our “more money guarantee.” We’ve named it that because it includes a promise that we’ll lower our contingency fee by 500$ if we cannot get your medical bills reduced.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term “contingency fee,” it’s easy to understand when you think of it as a portion of your settlement that your attorney will take in exchange for their services. Our lawyers don’t charge upfront or out-of-pocket for their counsel. Instead, they’ll take approximately 33% of the compensation you receive from your claim.
If you’ve suffered traumatic brain damage in a serious accident, you can turn to the team at 1LAW for expert legal advice and advocacy. Our attorneys have years of experience handling similar cases and are more than capable of negotiating a settlement that’s large enough to cover all of your losses.
