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.

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.
