There’s a good chance that someone you know will be involved in a car accident, pedestrian accident, construction accident, or medical malpractice which could result in a personal injury. In these types of situations, victims—besides suffering from physical pain—are likely to experience psychological anguish because of the defendant’s negligence.
The Barnes Firm is here to help. Being one of America’s largest personal injury law firms, the experienced team of attorneys at The Barnes Firm will help you navigate your personal injury claim. One of the Firm’s areas of focus is helping those who suffer from brain injuries, which can range from a complete loss of conscience to a mild form of traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Regardless of the type of injury, the Firm is prepared to assist victims.
In an interview with Insights Care, Rich Barnes, President of The Barnes Firm, emphasizes that not only do victims worry about recovering physically, but also face uncertainty about their rights and if they can be compensated for hardships as a result of someone else’s negligence. Thus, through his leadership, the Firm’s mission is to provide justice for its clients with outstanding legal service and to fight for the maximum recovery possible in the shortest period of time.
Following are the excerpts from the interview:
Kindly, brief us about the Barnes Firm and its inception.
The Barnes Firm was founded by Steve Barnes with offices located in Buffalo, Rochester, Manhattan, Long Island, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. After his unexpected passing in 2020, Steve’s brother and distinguished attorney Rich Barnes was appointed President of The Barnes Firm.
Please tell us about yourself and your professional journey so far.
I bring over 40 years of legal experience as a trial lawyer, senior assistant District Attorney, private practice lawyer, and served as President of the WNY Trial Lawyers Association.
What are the core values that the Firm stands by? What is its mission and vision statement?
At The Barnes Firm, we are driven by a shared passion for justice and a commitment to honor the legacy of Steve Barnes. Our attorneys are dedicated to obtaining the best possible outcome for every client in every case, no matter the size, severity, or opposition. We are proud to be able to provide our clients with the sense of justice and satisfaction that they deserve.
How is your Firm incorporating advancing technology to provide concussion and TBI treatments to help clients?
We work with top experts and specialists in their respective fields, whether that be neuroradiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and related professionals who are on the vanguard in using advanced technology for treatment and diagnosis.
What are the key products and services of the Firm and how is it impacting the demographic concerned?
Our Firm helps those who have been injured by someone else’s negligence. As one of America’s largest personal injury law firms, we assist victims who have experienced various types of physical injury, yet we are keenly focused on helping those who have suffered from a brain injury. Whether it’s a severe traumatic brain injury with complete loss of conscience or a mild concussion, we offer our experience to assist them with many areas after the accident, including experts, social programs, insurance, and so on.
What, according to you, are the challenges faced in supplying specialized services when navigating personal injury? How is the Firm, with your guidance, turning them into opportunities?
Many industries need to continue to develop their companies’ products and services to target and support individual customers. The Barnes Firm takes a similar approach to helping our injured clients, especially those with TBI, because it is completely dependent on individualized service.
All the members of our team must have the knowledge and the skill set to help each TBI client with their specific requirements and needs. Our Firm is built on being able to provide specialized services for this very reason, allowing us to remain laser focused on serving the needs of each client. If you do an outstanding job of truly helping each client, your business will be built upon a strong foundation and will be able to grow organically.
What are the future goals of your Firm and how has it envisioned to scale its operations and reach in 2023 and beyond?
We plan on continued growth in 2023 and 2024. The Firm will stay focused on developing systems to improve our services and implement AI strategies that will allow our clients to have the best results possible.
“I was in a car accident and called The Barnes Firm for help. My attorney encouraged me to seek medical attention immediately when he realized I was in a lot of pain and couldn’t remember what happened. After being seen by medical professionals at a nearby emergency room, I was told I had a concussion and multiple herniated discs. Over the next few weeks, I noticed that my memory was failing me and that my speech was impaired – there was hesitation with being able to form sentences and I began to stutter, and my words came out mixed up, which was very unusual for me. My attorney supported my decision to pursue more tests and get second and third opinions, as did my care team. I am grateful for the support and attention I received from my attorney at The Barnes Firm. With the Firms help and guidance, I was able to get the tests I needed and continue with the appropriate medical care. I am still on the road to recovery but the settlement my attorney was able to negotiate for me will help with covering the additional costs to extend my ongoing medical care.”
