Attorney Marsh Can Make the Difference

The Marsh Law Firm focuses on serious auto accidents because when you suffered a TBI or other head injury, the responsible parties should be held accountable. There are laws in places to protect hardworking people like you. The best way to make sure those laws are upheld is to work with an honest and capable lawyer.

Attorney Troy Marsh has over 26 years of experience dealing with insurance companies. When he sees that another driver was at fault for your or a loved one’s brain injury, Mr. Marsh will not hesitate to fight for an insurance payout or file a lawsuit. But first, he will assess your case quickly, determine who was at fault, gather your records and bills, and present your case in a way that maximizes its value.

Find the Right Attorney For the Representation You Deserve

Brain injury settlements aren’t easy to achieve. Insurance companies have teams of adjusters and attorneys whose only job is to reduce how much they pay. The insurer could try to shift blame, or diminish the severity of your head injury. They might even use tactics to get you to accept a low-ball offer.

Your lawyer shouldn’t let an insurer get away with this.

When attorney Marsh handles your brain injury case:

  • He is your only lawyer: Your case will never be passed off to an associate. Mr. Marsh is your only lawyer. Even if he chooses to associate with another attorney for their particular skills (at no cost to you), he’ll still be your lawyer and who you talk to.
  • He answers your questions. Too many lawyers take a case and then ignore their clients’ calls. Not Troy Marsh. You can expect a weekly call to get updates on your case and answers to your questions.
  • He can get results. There are no guarantees in car accident cases. But, you can look at Mr. Marsh’s track record and see he consistently wins great results for his clients through insurance settlements and court awards.
  • He takes the risk, not you. Is the cost worth bringing a car accident settlement claim? In many cases the answer is yes because The Marsh Law Firm handles the upfront costs for you. We only receive an attorney’s fee if we win compensation for you. Expenses are usually reimbursed from your portion of the recovery.

Do You Have a Case? Tell Us What Happened

Unfortunately, not all car crash victims have successful compensation claims, even if they suffered a concussion or serious head trauma. To have a right to a settlement or court award, you must be able to prove someone else was at fault. The best way to figure that out is to talk with a highly experienced car accident lawyer, like Troy Marsh.

During a free, no-obligation consult, you can tell Mr. Marsh what happened. He’ll listen and ask some questions. Because of his 26 years of experience, he can assess your case quickly, and recommend whether or not to move forward with an insurance claim or lawsuit.

Who’s to Blame for Your Brain Injury?

Recovering compensation for a brain injury from a car accident means proving that someone else was negligent. Sometimes, this is simple, but with everything on the line after a brain injury, it usually takes evidence.

Attorney Marsh starts by gathering all the evidence available, including the police report, any tickets issued, photos of the crash, eyewitness statements, and your medical records. Depending on the complexity of the case, he might hire an accident reconstruction expert to calculate things like the speed or angle of impact.

Let Us Prove Negligence

Attorney Marsh will gather all the evidence, and presents it to the insurer or court, making it clear that the other party owed you a duty of care and failed to live up to that responsibility. In other words, their carelessness or recklessness caused the accident and your injuries. From there, Troy will demonstrate how your or a loved one’s TBI impacted their life and maximize the value of your claim.

What to Expect From Your Claim?

You are going through a lot right now. You need a lawyer that understands. The Marsh Law Firm handles cases involving all types of head and brain injuries from car accidents, including:

  • Skull fractures
  • Open head injuries
  • Concussions
  • TBIs from blunt force trauma
  • Brain swelling
  • Diffuse axonal injuries
  • Anoxic and hypoxic brain injuries (when the brain receives too little or no oxygen)

Brain injuries are expensive to treat, but Mr. Marsh knows how to evaluate your future medical needs and costs. If you suffer permanent brain damage from a car accident, you might never return to your previous life. You might be forced to find new employment or rely on disability. You might need help with common daily tasks.

Whatever the extent of your injury and brain damage, Mr. Marsh fights for maximum compensation with the urgency your case demands.

Car Accident Brain Injury Compensation

Whether you suffered a severe TBI or a concussion in a car accident, you deserve compensation from the at-fault driver.

You might be entitled to compensation for:

Did Your Loved One Pass Away from Head Trauma?

If your spouse, parent, child, or other relative suffered a serious brain injury in a crash and didn’t survive, talk with us about a possible wrongful death claim and estate claim. You and your family, or your relative’s estate, might be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, the value of the decedent’s life, funeral and burial costs, loss of consortium, and more.

The Claim Process of Demanding Compensation

Though you might want to focus on your recovery from a brain injury, you need to get started on your claim right away. It’s best to hire an attorney who can represent your interests early on.

If you receive a call from another driver’s insurance company, don’t talk with them. It won’t help you to answer questions or give a statement. In fact, it could hurt your claim. Always talk with a lawyer first.

Attorney Troy Marsh will assess your claim and damages. Because of his years of experience and reputation, he is familiar with the complexity of brain injuries. He understands the medical terms, where to find the resources you need, and how to translate your experiences into an argument that gets you more compensation.

We’ll handle the insurance claim process for you, including providing evidence and documents to the insurer, demanding the insurer respond fairly, and aggressively negotiating for a settlement.

We’re Always Trial Ready

To get the most from a brain injury claim after a car accident, you might have to go to court. There are a couple of reasons for this. Depending on who’s liable, you might need to gather more evidence that’s only available through the discovery process. Mr. Marsh will explain the discovery process in detail. Let attorney Marsh put his trial experience to work so your case is ready to go to court if that’s necessary.

By preparing for court, it doesn’t mean you will end up in court. But, it does mean you can access more evidence through the discovery process. It also forces the insurer to take your claim seriously, making it more likely to come to the negotiation table with a willingness to settle for more.

Brain Injury FAQs

Yes, they are. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of TBI-related hospitalizations. Crashes were the leading cause of TBI-related hospitalizations for people between the ages of 15 and 44 years old and were the leading cause of TBI-related deaths in people between the ages of 15 and 34 years and over 75.

Yes. If you will need ongoing medical or daily care because of a brain injury, we will fight for you to receive compensation for that. We work with your medical providers and experts to determine what type of care you’ll need, including medical treatments, at-home care, and supplies (like a wheelchair) and how much those will cost.

We consider your past and future lost wages when we calculate the value of your claim. If you can’t work at all or need to find new employment, we’ll consider whether you’re likely to earn less. If that’s the case, we can demand compensation for your lower earning potential.
