Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Car Accident LawyerIt is no secret that car accidents in the United States happen frequently and can be deadly. Every single day, Americans are victims of car accidents all across the country. In fact, it has almost become common knowledge that automobile accidents are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. If you or someone you know has been involved and injured in a car accident, it may be in your best interest to reach out to a car accident lawyer in order to receive professional help in get your fair compensation.

Statistics on Car Accidents in the United States

Car accidents in the United States are no joke. The following statistics are included in order to paint the picture of how serious the issue of car accidents is in our country.

  • According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, approximately 37,000 people die annually as a result of automobile accidents.
  • In addition to the 37,000 deaths, more than two and a half million people suffer injuries from car accidents.
  • Car accidents are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
  • Automobile crashes wrack up more than $230.6 billion annually in both damages and medical bills.

Possible Causes of a Car Accident

There are a wide range of factors that can contribute to a car accident. While every case is different, some of the most common causes of car accidents include (but are not limited to):

  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inexperienced driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Extreme weather (such as snow and ice, heavy rain, heavy wind, heavy hail, etc.)
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving at night
  • Tailgating

While some of these causes are unavoidable, such as the extreme weather, many are factors that we can control. For example, everybody can avoid texting and driving by pulling over to the side of the road when it is safe to send a text or make a phone call.

Possible Injuries That Can Result from a Car Accident

In addition to fatalities, the large majority of people involved in car accidents suffer major injuries. While the severity of the injury varies in each case, many require at minimum hospitalization, and many others require long-term medical care, expensive surgeries, and physical therapy. Some of the common injuries that occur from car accidents include (but are also not limited to):

  • Whiplash
  • Brain damage
  • Muscle weakness
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Bruises and abrasions
  • Spinal cord damage

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.
