Call for legal help: 1-866-611-BASC

We are personal injury lawyers

Working to bring financial stability back to your life

Individuals who have suffered catastrophic brain and spinal cord injuries almost always have pressing financial needs for medical bills, lost wages and future care. But we’ve found that they’re also looking for something more: answers.

Sponsored by Newsome Melton LLP, is a resource for brain and spinal cord injury survivors and their families to learn more information about medical conditions, rehabilitation, and legal options.

At Newsome Melton, we know a family’s powerful bond can help overcome the challenges victims face after they’ve suffered a catastrophic injury—which is why we want to include you in our family. Our attorneys and staff at Newsome Melton give our clients the resources, expertise, and unwavering commitment that they need to find answers.

Our job isn’t over once the lawsuit has been filed. We’re with our clients every step of the way. We listen so we can become your voice. We listen so we can tell your story. Success isn’t only about verdicts and settlements for us; it’s about changing corporate behavior to protect families—yours and ours.

Complicated Matters, Simple Relationships

A lot of law firms will tell you how they resemble a family – lawyers, paralegals, and secretaries all working closely together, for years on end. We think that’s a good start. At Newsome Law Firm, our family is just a little bit bigger, because it always includes our clients.

We don’t pat ourselves on the back because we take your call. We know that for the cases we handle, and the people we work with – individuals and families who have suffered unimaginable loss – the attorney-client relationship has to be closer than that. Because we take just a few cases at any one time, we can give every matter, and every client, the proper attention. That means we don’t just take a call. We sit down with clients, we advise and counsel, we ask for their input, we work as a team.

It’s the Little Things

Our relationships with clients don’t just soothe feelings. They wins cases. By working closely with our clients, and regularly meeting with them, we learn more about the events and circumstances that changed their lives. We pick up on seemingly small details that, in the end, often make all the difference.

We’re able to better direct investigations that can turn up crucial evidence, or create strategies that prove more effective in the courtroom. You see, our lawyers all have one thing in common. They’re not just there for you. They’re there with you.

  1. 1

    Only a few qualified cases at a time means your case will always get the attention it deserves

    We limit our practice to only the most serious injury cases involving brain injury, spinal cord injuries or death. Because we help only clients with the most serious injuries, we don't have a “volume” practice, like other law firms who take anything that comes in the door. As our client, you will know and work directly with us, your lawyers - not just a legal assistant or paralegal.

  2. 2

    Our firm has a track record of jury verdicts for brain and spinal cord injury survivors.

    Our firm has received the highest peer review ratings because we win cases - not just through settlements - but in the courtroom and in trial with juries and judges. With a proven track record of litigating serious cases against big hospitals and corporations, the other side knows we have the financial strength to go the distance.

  3. 3

    Specialized on brain & spinal cord injury

    Through trial, a typical case will cost in excess of 150, 000 for things like expert witnesses, depositions, filing fees and exhibits. And this is in ADDITION to the attorney’s fees. Most families can’t afford to pay fees or costs so we handle most of our clients on a contingency fee basis. This means we front all of the costs and get paid from a percentage of the recovery. And if we lose (which fortunately only rarely happens), you don’t owe us a dime for fees or costs.
