Personal Injury Case Initial Consultation

Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Personal Injury Case Initial ConsultationAn initial consultation for a personal injury case is when an injured person and/or their family talks to a lawyer or paralegal in order to evaluate the details of their claim- to determine whether it is a potential case that their law firm may be help the potential client with. This is an opportunity for someone who is educated in personal injury law and experienced with defending people’s rights through personal injury claims, to determine whether this is a case that is worth pursuing through the justice system.

The law firm of Cohen & Cohen has been defending the rights of injured people and their families for over thirty years. We have helped people who have been injured because of somebody else’s negligence, malice and recklessness. When someone is injured or becomes unwell because of this, he or she may be entitled to compensation for their injury. If an innocent person tragically dies because of this, their surviving family members may be entitled to compensation. One of the things that helps a lawyer and potential client decide whether or not they should move forward with a personal injury case, is by determining whether or not the potential defendant has the resources such as insurance, money, or other assets that they can pay an award from, for the expenses and financial hardships that incurred because of the plaintiff’s injury.

Compensation

Common things that people seek compensation for in a personal injury case may include:

  • Emergency services
  • Medical expenses
  • Hospitalization expenses
  • Prescription medication and other kinds of treatments
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of childcare
  • Loss of household maintenance and management
  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial or cremation costs
  • Loss of consortium (spousal support)
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of care for a disabled adult

The above are some of the more common reasons people seek restitution when they have been injured because of someone else’s failure to do something necessary, or their doing something unnecessary that caused harm to the injured person.

Many people are intimidated at the thought of having to talk to a lawyer or paralegal, and are even more so if their experience was in any way painful or emotionally disturbing. It can be hard to talk about personal experiences and to have to remember details of painful memories but it is important to be able to do this during a personal injury case initial consultation because it will help a legal professional help you determine whether this is a case that is worth the time and energy it will take to pursue.

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.
