Brain Injuries Are A Lifelong Battle | Contact An Attorney Early

A loved one suffering a traumatic brain injury is a serious turn of events. They are facing an uphill battle toward recovery, if recovery is possible, or learning to live with irreparable brain damage. Their lives will never be the same — and neither will yours. Your entire family will be affected by the tough road ahead.

At O'Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, we believe that medical and financial burdens deserve compensation after a severe injury. We know it will not undo the damage, but it can help relieve stress now and during the years to come.

How An Attorney Can Help Your Case

The primary role of an attorney is to be your loved one's advocate. This is particularly important when they are hospitalized or undergoing a long recovery, as the attorney will serve as their proxy in court. You want someone who is passionate about helping your family and skilled at presenting the case at trial.

Your first step should be to contact an attorney and discuss the situation with them. We offer a free consultation to prospective clients that are seeking answers. Once you choose to hire the attorney, they can handle the process and file the personal injury claim for you. They will also investigate the accident, evaluate how much compensation is owed and determine the best strategy to get results. This can mean settling out of court, challenging claims from insurance companies or taking the case in front of a jury.

Experience Is Key To Winning Brain Injury Cases

Helping a jury understand the accident and specifics of a brain injury can be difficult. You want to select an attorney with substantial experience presenting these cases at trial. Kentucky also has many nuances to these cases that can change based on the jurisdiction. With 80 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys at O'Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, will fight to help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages from missing work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional and mental anguish
  • Lost quality of life
  • The emotional stress of the family
  • Ongoing treatment or physical therapy

A win for you is a win for us. We are passionate about serving local families and finding justice for wrongdoing. Do not let a serious injury from an accident go uncompensated.
