Accidents occur when someone else is not doing their best to stay safe, and sometimes you are on the wrong side of that. You deserve attorneys who will fight for you until you receive the damages incurred by their negligence—attorneys like the team at Cohen and Cohen.
When it comes to personal injury accidents, there are many ways someone can become a victim. From premises liability to car accidents, and everything in between, our team at Cohen & Cohen Law has over 50 years of practice in all areas of personal injury. These include:
During our initial meeting, we will gather all the important information about the accident, including how it happened and what injuries you have suffered because of it. We will open a file in your name and our trained, professional team of legal technicians will prepare your case. They will take care of notifying all appropriate parties of the claim.
While your case is being evaluated, our team will be with you every step of the way, advising and supporting you.
After your attorney has reviewed all the liability issues, they will gather necessary medical documents, records, x-rays, and test results from your physicians, hospitals, and other providers.
Sometimes your treating physician will not write an opinion report of your injury until they have treated and examined you a certain number of times. We will advise you, of course, if there are any unusual delays and what you should do in the meantime.
Early on, we will contact your insurance company to discuss a possible settlement of your case before any lawsuit is filed. Before insurance companies settle cases, however, they want to see all appropriate medical documents, information on lost wages, damages to personal property, other expenses, and any other relevant information (including possible future losses).
Insurance companies will not settle a case until they are convinced they have a legal duty to compensate you, so appropriate documentation is critical. Your attorney will prepare a settlement demand letter with all relevant enclosures and deliver it to the insurance company. They will then review the documents and determine whether to offer you a settlement. If they don’t, we will guide you through pursuing a lawsuit.
