If you have been in a Virginia boating accident, you may be in need of a personal injury law firm that is experienced with successfully defending the rights of boating accident victims.

Virginia Boating Accident and Personal Injury Law

In Virginia it does not matter whether you were on land or water or what you were doing if someone is injured because of another person’s negligence, malice, or recklessness- the victim may be entitled to compensation for expenses that are the result of their injury. People may try to hold the negligent party or parties accountable for their actions by making them liable for these expenses through a personal injury claim.

This claim may initially go to the defendant (the negligent party) and/or their insurance company. Insurance companies are notorious for offering as little of a settlement as they can instead of what a victim may be entitled to. Many of these companies are large and powerful with a wealth of resources in place to help them to save money at the expense of others. This Is one of the many reasons that it is recommended that boating accident victims get the help of an experienced personal injury law firm with lawyers who know boating accident laws, early on in their claim.

Do you have to have to be in a boat to need a boating accident law firm?
You do not need to be in a boat to need a boating accident law firm. It only takes one, small move of negligence or recklessness on one person’s part to put people in the need of a good boating accident firm in Virginia.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
