Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Catastrophic Injury LawyerNobody expects that they will ever need a catastrophic injury lawyer. However, every year thousands of Americans suffer from catastrophic injuries, many of which are caused by somebody else. Catastrophic injuries are not to be taken lightly. They can cause long-term or permanent damage, and impair your entire way of life. If you or someone you know believes they may have suffered a catastrophic injury, it may be in your best interest to reach out to Cohen & Cohen, a group of skilled attorneys that have been successfully serving residents of Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, and the surrounding areas for years and specialize in injury cases like these.

What is a catastrophic injury?

There is often a lot of confusion around what exactly qualifies as a catastrophic injury. Although every case is different, there are some general outlines when determining whether or not your injury is considered catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries typically involved some degree of damage to the spine — from severe spinal cord damage to fractures — or they can involve any sort of brain trauma or damage. Typically, these types of injuries require hospitalization, long-term medical care, extensive treatment, physical therapy, and even around-the-clock care depending on how serious the injury is.

What are some examples of ways I could get a catastrophic injury?

There is no one way that a catastrophic injury can occur. That being said, it is important to note that generally most catastrophic injuries are caused by other people. They can happen in day-to-day life, whether that be on the highway on your way to work or at your doctor’s office. Some of the more common ways you can suffer from a catastrophic injury include (but are not limited to):

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Negligent medical care
  • Surgical malpractice

These are only a small fraction of the many ways a catastrophic injury can occur. When your injury is caused by somebody else’s negligence or misconduct, it is important to seek legal help.

Why should I hire a catastrophic injury lawyer?

No matter how they are caused, catastrophic injuries can be costly. In addition the emotional trauma that comes with suffering from an injury with that degree of severity, medical bills can pile up. From doctor’s visits to longer, potentially lifelong medical assistance, caring for your injury can pose a major financial burden on you and your family. The American medical system today, unfortunately, is costly. By hiring a catastrophic injury lawyer, you are helping your chances of receiving fair compensation for you injuries in court. An experienced professional counsel can help you through the process, so you don’t have to stress over complicated paperwork and building medical expenses.

If you or someone you love shows any of the above signs of a catastrophic injury, you may be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit. Do not hesitate to reach out to Cohen & Cohen today and we will be more than happy to set you up with an expert catastrophic injury lawyer on our team who will fight for your fair compensation in court.

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.
