Can You File a Personal Injury Claim Without the Help of a Lawyer?

Can You File a Personal Injury Claim Without the Help of a LawyerEven though you can file a personal injury claim without the help of a personal injury lawyer Frederick, MD residents can rely on, it is not often recommended that people do this.

If you were harmed in some way by someone else, or on the premises of a business, you may be aware that by submitting a personal injury claim with the negligent party that caused your injuries, you might receive a settlement. A personal injury lawyer typically charges a percentage of the settlement in lieu of charging upfront or by the hour.

At Cohen & Cohen, if we do not recover a settlement or award for a client, we do not charge them anything at all. We also do not charge for the first consultation. When you meet with our personal injury lawyer you can learn about the steps involved in pursuing a personal injury claim and decide if you are comfortable doing this on your own.

The information below is a general overview about the process that you may find helpful but it is not intended to replace the advice of a Frederick personal injury lawyer who is licensed to help people throughout the state of MD.

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a demand for compensation for damages that a victim (usually with the help of a personal injury lawyer) submits to the at-fault party or to their insurance carrier.

What is included in a personal injury claim?

To ensure the highest probability that the claim will be accepted and paid in full, the injured party should include detailed information about the following:

  • How the accident or incident occurred, and what led up to it. Our Frederick,MD personal injury lawyer has the experience and skills necessary to investigate and document how and why the at-fault party is liable for our client’s injury.
  • The nature of the injury you sustained as a result of your accident and its severity. Medical documentation and proof of injury should also be included. At Cohen & Cohen, our personal injury lawyers works with medical professionals who can provide testimony that is admissible in court about our clients’ injuries.
  • A detailed accounting of all injury-related damages, as well as costs that many victims do not realize can be included. For example, did you know that your damages can include the cost of future surgeries? Without a full list of your injury related damages, you could lose out on a significant amount of money. A Frederick, MD personal injury lawyer who is experienced at successfully defending the rights of personal injury victims, can help you to compile this.

The Negotiation Process

Once the personal injury claim is submitted, if it is accepted, then the insurance carrier will often offer a settlement that is far less than the amount of your damages. Our personal injury lawyer at Cohen & Cohen is familiar with insurance agency protocols as well as current and typical medical costs for a wide range of injuries. This provides a firm understanding of what the insurance company should pay out. Cohen & Cohen has a successful record of negotiating substantial settlements on behalf of our clients. If your injury occurred on the premises of a business, that company may employ lawyers in addition to the insurance company lawyers to fight your claim, particularly if it is for a large sum of money. Cohen & Cohen fights aggressively on behalf of our clients in order to protect their right to a fair settlement. If we do not have a personal injury lawyer on our team who is particularly suited to the needs of your Frederick, MD case, we would like to help you to find one who is.

This was an awesome experience with Brittney Cassiere, Miriam Calisher, and my attorney Jill. What made me select Cohen & Cohen for my case, was my experience many years ago with Kim Brooks-Rodney. I definitely recommend anyone to use them. They have your best interest at hand.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
