Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Injuries in DC Truck Accidents Injuries in DC truck accidents can be minor but frequently, the occupants of vehicles that are smaller than the truck will sustain serious injuries. Injuries that result in debilitating a victim for the rest of their life and injuries that result in fatalities are unfortunately common. When someone is injured in an accident, it is important that they seek medical care as soon as possible. It is important to do this in the interest of getting treatment for their injuries but also as a documentation of injuries in the event that the victim needs to file for compensation through a personal injury case. If you or someone you love sustained injuries during a truck accident in Washington DC or in the surrounding areas, it may be in your best interest to enlist the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer who is licensed to practice in DC and the surrounding areas.

Compensation for DC Truck Accidents

When someone is injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, or reckless or malicious behavior, they may be entitled to compensation. When someone is in an accident involving a truck in DC, he or she may be entitled to compensation regardless of whether it was with a commercial truck driven by a professional driver, or a truck that is privately owned and operated by a private citizen with a regular driver’s license. Reasons that truck accident victims and their families seek compensation include but are not limited to:

  • Emergency services bills
  • Medical bills
  • Hospitalization bills
  • Medication and treatment costs
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of childcare
  • Loss of household management and upkeep
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial or cremation expenses
  • Loss of consortium (spousal support)
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of sibling companionship
  • Pain and grieving
  • Costs to repair or replace damaged property

Many people who are injured in truck accidents are not aware of the actual and potential costs that have been and will be a result of their accident. Many truck accident victims and their families, do not have the time and resources (and oftentimes the ability) to effectively get the compensation that they are entitled to.

Truck Accident Injuries

Although there are countless different kinds of injuries that people involved in truck accidents can sustain, there many injuries that commonly occur as the result of truck accidents. Even if an injury feels or seems relatively minor, a truck accident victim whose injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence (or reckless or malicious behavior) did nothing to deserve to be hurt. This is one of the many reasons that a truck accident injury victim should pursue compensation for their injuries. Common injuries that are the result of truck accidents include but are not limited to:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Muscle, tendon, and ligament, strains, sprains and tears
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Cuts, lacerations and deep wounds
  • Internal bleeding
  • Loss of limbs

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury during a truck accident in DC or the surrounding areas, or if someone you love has died because of this, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

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.
