Episode 1 – Introduction
Episode 1: In this introduction to his new podcast, Evansville-area personal injury attorney, Todd Barsumian provides some background information about his connections to the Newburgh-Evansville area, his personal injury law firm and the types of cases he handles for people in both Indiana and Kentucky.
The firm’s main office is in Newburgh, on the corner of Old State Road 261 and Bell Road, beside the post office. The firm also has an office in Evansville and a separate office in Fishers, a suburb of Indianapolis.
Barsumian Armiger is a boutique injury firm focusing primarily on automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian collisions, tractor-trailer wrecks and medical malpractice cases. Todd is an experienced trial lawyer who understands the complexity and nuances of litigation. He’s licensed to practice in Indiana and in Kentucky. As a small firm, you’ll be able to speak to an attorney, not a just case manager.
Surprisingly, most cases settle before they go all the way to trial. The risk, to both sides, of taking a case to trial are significant. For many reasons, cases are negotiated to a settlement, unless the parties can’t reach a fair resolution. Once a case is filed in court the timeframe is drastically lengthened, which can also be a factor in a decision to file or settle the claim.
Insurance companies and their attorneys consider both the facts of the case and the background of the victim’s attorney. Todd’s firm undertakes representation in each case with the understanding it may go to trial.
How Does Barsumian Armiger Help?
In handling an injury case, Todd understands there are two primary ways he can help an injured person or a grieving family. One way is to do everything possible in an effort to maximize a settlement or jury verdict. The pain and anguish of a serious accident, or wrongful death, can’t be taken away. If it was a fatal accident, or the victim later dies as a result of the injuries, nothing will bring that person back. Sometimes it’s the financial impact of a successful case that enables a family or the spouse to move forward.
At the same time, Todd also recognizes the other way he’s able to help is by providing a sense of closure for the victim and/or family. Sometimes it’s just peace of mind knowing the negligent party was finally held accountable that enables the victim and his/her family to accept the situation and, again, to move forward. A fair monetary settlement can be a measure of accountability.
The Right Approach
Solid case preparation is key to being successful at trial. Attorneys must understand the facts, know how to interpret an analysis performed by an accident reconstructionist and take a skillful deposition of a physician or other individual. This is why the firm approaches each case as if it were ultimately going to be tried in a court of law. Attention to detail and effective communication are necessary to understand how to deal with potential jurors and the jurors who will actually participate in the trial.

Barsumian Armiger offers free consultations and works on a contingency-fee basis, which means there are no attorney’s fees or expenses unless there’s a recovery in a case. There are no upfront costs. The firm advances case expenses and charges a percentage of the recovery. The firm only gets paid an attorney’s fee and only gets reimbursed its expenses if at the conclusion of a case the client obtains a recovery. However, if there is no recovery, clients will not owe any attorney’s fees or expenses.
