Hiring Riddle & Brantley Comes at No Direct Cost to You

Injuries often leave victims with medical bills and other expenses they aren’t prepared to pay for. The added stress of being unable to work and under immense psychological pressure can make financial burdens even greater.

Our mission is to help, and our fee structure reflects this mission.

Riddle & Brantley Accident Injury Lawyers offers contingency fees, which mean that:

  • We ask for no upfront compensation from you: Our firm has the resources to pay for the cost of each case we handle, so we don’t ask for any upfront payment from you. 
  • We cover the entire cost of completing your case: There is no predicting how much a slip and fall case will cost, but our firm is committed to covering that cost regardless of its value. 
  • We put all our resources into your case: We aren’t content filing bare-bones cases. We go beyond paying filing fees, as we will leverage all of our resources to benefit your case. This may mean hiring experts, reconstructing the event(s) that caused you to suffer injuries, and taking other steps to strengthen your case.
  • We only receive a fee if you receive a settlement or judgment: We believe lawyers should receive payment based on the quality of their performance. A contingency fee means our pay is contingent upon securing your financial recovery.

Our attorneys’ fees come from the settlements and verdicts we secure for clients. In other words, you won’t pay us out of your own pocket under any circumstances.

What You Get When You Hire a Lawyer from Our Firm

Hiring a lawyer from our legal team means:

  • Allowing an experienced legal professional to handle every detail of your case
  • Being able to focus on your health and psychological recovery
  • Having a trained lawyer to protect your case and advise you
  • Choosing to pursue all the compensation you deserve

Our firm will oversee every aspect of your case in Fayetteville, including:

Securing Any Evidence That Benefits Your Case

Our team will document the property on which you suffered injuries, which may include:

  • Photographing the property, including any hazards that caused you harm
  • Consulting experts about how the property owner should have prevented your injuries
  • Securing any video footage of the event that caused your injuries
  • Interviewing eyewitnesses who saw your injuries happen (or witnessed the hazards that led to your injuries)
  • Obtaining any other evidence that suggests who is at fault for your injuries

Our lawyers are experienced in identifying valuable evidence and incorporating it into our cases. Leave the investigation to us.

Identifying Those Responsible for Your Damages

We gather all available information about our clients’ circumstances. Then, we identify those responsible for the client’s injuries and related damages.

In premises liability cases, liable parties can include:

  • A property owner
  • The manufacturer of a defective product (such as flooring that poses a high risk of slipping)
  • The owner of an aggressive animal
  • Any other party whose negligence causes harm to another person

Every case is unique, and our lawyers make no assumptions. Instead, we investigate each case thoroughly and establish liability based on the facts and evidence.

Obtaining Proof of Your Damages

Our team serving Fayetteville will build your case with proof of your damages, which may include:

  • Any medical bills related to the premises liability case
  • X-rays, MRIs, and other medical images 
  • Your doctors’ notes and diagnoses of injuries and symptoms
  • Expert testimony about how your injuries have affected you professionally
  • Past income statements to help prove how much income you have lost since being injured
  • Expert testimony about your emotional and psychological symptoms

Some damages are more complex than others. For instance, pain and suffering involves challenges that are not always easily proven through bills. Your attorney may rely heavily on experts (like mental health providers) to establish the full extent of your damages.

Calculating a Case Cost and Fighting for a Settlement

Our team will calculate the cost of your damages, including any damages you have yet to endure. We will begin settlement negotiations once we are 100 percent certain we have accounted for your damages and calculated their value accurately.

The negotiation process generally requires us to:

  • Explain and document the damages you have suffered
  • Explain the likelihood that you will suffer damages (like medical expenses) in the future
  • Present proof of liable parties’ negligence
  • Explain our calculation of your damages

Our lawyers have successfully overcome many challenging settlement negotiations. No matter how resistant liable parties may be to paying you, we will insist that they cover the cost of your damages.

Advising You About Whether to File a Lawsuit

Your case may reach a point where a lawsuit becomes necessary. If those responsible for your damages don’t negotiate in good faith or prove flexible in settlement talks, suing liable parties may be the right move.

Your Fayetteville premises liability attorney will:

  • Review any settlement offers you have received
  • Determine if the settlement offer is fair 
  • Explain what a lawsuit entails
  • Advise you about whether filing a lawsuit makes sense
  • Move forward with a lawsuit if you choose to do so

Our team brings all hands on deck when representing clients in court. If your case leads to trial, you are in good hands with Riddle & Brantley Accident Injury Lawyers.

Leading a Court Case, If We Need To

Our attorneys have extensive experience arguing cases in front of juries. We will:

  • Help you decide whether to proceed to trial
  • Complete all pre-trial processes
  • Question and cross-examine witnesses
  • Present and question expert witnesses
  • Lead every other aspect of the trial

Going to court is a high-stakes undertaking, and our lawyers’ experience makes them unshakeable in the courtroom. Allow us to prepare and present your case as you continue to focus on your health.

We Know Property Owners’ Duty to You—and How They May Have Failed You

Fayetteville Personal Injury Lawyer - Riddle & Brantley

Because Riddle & Brantley Accident Injury Lawyers have led many premises liability cases, we know the many errors that lead to injuries and lawsuits.

We will determine the specific way that liable parties failed you and will work to prove their negligence by:

  • Proving they owed you a duty of care: Those with a duty of care must take reasonable precautions to prevent injuries and other types of harm. This duty of care exists to many different parties in society, including property owners. 
  • Explaining how they breached the duty of care: As we investigate the details of your case, we will determine exactly how a property owner (or another liable party) breached their duty of care to you.
  • Proving the link between the breach of duty and your injuries: The evidence will help us prove that the property owner’s failures led directly to you suffering injuries. 
  • Exhibiting proof of your damages: The final step in proving negligence is showing how the liable party’s negligence caused you harm. We will provide proof of both your economic and non-economic damages.

Our lawyers will be intimately familiar with the details of your case. This will allow us to make a detailed case for why the liable party is responsible for your damages.

We Will Identify and Value Your Recoverable Damages

Your Fayetteville premises liability lawyer will detail all of your recoverable damages, which may include:

  • Healthcare expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income, lost earning power, and other professional damages
  • Mental health treatment costs

Each of our clients has different damages, and we work to ensure every client receives fair compensation for their unique damages.
