If you are looking for a collision lawyer in DC there is a good chance that you or someone you care about has been in an accident involving an automobile in the DC area. When someone is in an accident that is not their fault, they are often entitled to compensation for property damage and expenses related to any injuries they sustained from the accident. In the horrible event that someone dies in a collision that was not their fault, their surviving family members may be entitled to compensation. When someone seeks compensation for any sort of accident involving moving vehicles, this is typically done with the help of a personal injury lawyer through a personal injury claim. Many people find it beneficial to have the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer that is licensed to practice in and who is familiar with the laws and courts of Washington DC.
The law firm of Cohen & Cohen has been protecting the rights of collision victims and their families in Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia and the surrounding areas, for over 30 years. Our dedicated legal team believes in shouldering the legal burdens of our clients’ injuries so that they do not have to. We know that when someone is injured or taking care of someone who is injured, that everyday tasks and responsibilities can become difficult and overwhelming. We know that when an individual or a family is grieving over the unexpected, and seemingly unnecessary loss of a loved one, regular routines can feel meaningless and can be hard to deal with. When the need to fight for monetary compensation is put on the plate of someone who is dealing with the aftermath of an automobile collision, he or she most likely does not have the time, resources, and mental and/or emotional capacity to do this effectively. If you are injured or taking care of someone because of a collision, or if you are grieving over the tragic loss of loved one because of this, Cohen & Cohen is here to help.
Types of Collisions
A collision is when two or more things strike one another, or against each other with a forceful impact. It is often called a crash. Two common collisions that involve two vehicles are rear-end and head on collisions.
Rear-end Rear-end collisions commonly occur when a moving vehicle that is front of another
vehicle brakes suddenly or because the rear vehicle is following too closely or accelerates too
Head-on Head-on collisions are not as common as rear-end collisions but they frequently result in fatalities. They often occur when one driver veers across the a center lane into a lane of oncoming traffic. These are often categorized as lane departure crashes or road departure crashes.
