Few things are more devastating than sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI), especially if the accident was a result of someone else’s negligence. That said, if you are an accident victim and suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you’re most likely looking to hire a lawyer to represent you. However, the attorney you choose can be the difference between a favorable outcome and an unfavorable one. For this reason, you should ask yourself, and your “potential” lawyer, the following questions before moving forward.
Does the lawyer have extensive experience representing clients who’ve sustained traumatic brain injuries?
Attorney Stewart M. Casper has fought on behalf of accident victims who’ve sustained traumatic brain injuries for over four decades. In that time, he has become a resource for brain injury trial lawyers throughout the United States, as he stays abreast of all recent developments in neuroscience and trial strategy in this field. In addition, he has achieved persistent success trying TBI cases to juries. Actual trial experience and the ability to speak the same language as physicians, neuropsychologists, and neuroscientists has prompted defense lawyers, judges, and insurance adjusters to recognize his talents and has caused many talented trial lawyers to refer their TBI cases to Casper & de Toledo.
Does the lawyer exclusively practice personal injury law?
Many attorneys only dabble in personal injury law, yet would gladly take your case. That said, just as you wouldn’t hire a mechanic to service your boiler, you shouldn’t hire a predominantly criminal defense, family law, or any other lawyer who only practices personal injury law on the side. Mr. Casper exclusively handles cases on behalf of those who’ve been harmed due to negligence in Connecticut, so when you choose him to represent you, you know you’re hiring an attorney who specializes in the field.
Do you feel comfortable with your attorney?
As with any relationship, it is important to feel a sense of trust and comfort. If your attorney doesn’t set you at ease or you don’t get a good feeling when speaking with them, perhaps it would be best to look elsewhere. Our firm takes pride in our ability to communicate openly with our clients, timely answer questions, and keep them in the loop, every step of the way. With us in your corner, you can have peace of mind, knowing we will always have your back and be your number one advocate.
What is your attorney’s professional reputation?
These days, many of us won’t even eat at a restaurant before first checking its reviews. When it comes to personal injury cases and especially brain injury claims, Casper & de Toledo has a storied history and a stellar reputation as documented in U.S. News and World Report, The Best Lawyers in America, Martindale, and other professional recognition services.
