Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

DC Personal Injury Lawyer

If you suffered a personal injury, you may want to speak to a DC personal injury lawyer from Cohen & Cohen We may be able to help you retrieve compensation for your injuries if another person’s negligence was the cause.

Many personal injury cases are filed every year in the United States. Here are some common kinds of personal injury cases a personal injury lawyer in DC sees:

  • Slip and Fall Claims: Whether they are outside of a person’s home or inside a grocery store, slip and fall accidents can lead to broken bones and other injuries. It is important for homeowners and business owners to make sure their premises are clean and safe.
  • Car Accident Cases: When drivers are distracted or not obeying the rules of the road, they may cause accidents. Car crashes can result in life-threatening injuries, like traumatic brain injuries and broken bones.
  • Medical Malpractice: While most doctors provide their patients with the utmost care, some are negligent. When doctors are negligent, they may cause serious injuries in their patients. Medical malpractice claims may involve giving patients the wrong drugs, failing to diagnose a condition, or leaving a foreign object in a patient during surgery.
  • Product Liability Cases: A DC personal injury lawyer may also deal with personal injuries that result from defective products. For example, if a swing set is not manufactured correctly and breaks while a child is on it, that child may be seriously hurt.

How Much Is a Personal Injury Case Worth?

Each personal injury case is different. The amount of compensation you are entitled to depends on what your injuries cost you physically, psychologically, and monetarily. Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury claim, you may be entitled to collect some or all of the following damages:

  • Medical Treatment: Whether it is a one-night stay at a hospital or physical therapy, personal injury damages often include the medical costs associated with the accident. Be sure to give your DC personal injury lawyer copies of all relevant medical records and bills.
  • Lost Wages: If your personal injury has caused you to miss time from work or will affect the amount of income you can make in the future, you may be able to receive compensation for that.
  • Pain and Suffering: Some personal injuries may lead to long-term mental or physical suffering. This type of compensation is often awarded as a way of recognizing that the victim suffered a great deal, and that their suffering is valid.

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.
