You may have questions about personal injury claims. The following are responses to common questions that a DC personal injury attorney is often asked.

Why if I have already begun the claims process? Do I still need an attorney?

Not everyone needs a personal injury attorney. However, for many victims who are dealing with serious injuries, handling the complex and stressful process of filing a claim is overwhelming. In addition, when the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, it is often necessary to take them to court. A Cohen & Cohen, P.C. attorney may automatically prepare for a lawsuit even before the settlement process is complete. This avoids a delay in preparing for court. Another advantage is that because our attorneys are prepared to file a lawsuit, the insurance company may be motivated to offer a fair settlement to avoid going to court. With a DC personal injury attorney from Cohen & Cohen, P.C. by your side, you’re more protected than being on your own.

A DC personal injury attorney from Cohen & Cohen, P.C. can review your situation and give you an idea of damages you are likely eligible to receive.

What is considered negligence?
