Personal Injury Attorney Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia
What Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is a legal process that a victim (plaintiff) can pursue against the party or parties (defendants) responsible for causing their physical and or financial injury. A successful lawsuit for the plaintiff will result in them receiving compensation for their losses from the defendant(s). In this way, the victim can recover his or her damages.
Damages may include but are not limited to the following:
- Medical help
- Doctor and specialist visits
- Emergency room visits
- Physical therapy
- Mental and emotional therapy
- Repair of damaged property
- Court fees and other legal costs
When Should You Suffer Due to Another’s Negligence?
You should never suffer because of someone else’s negligent behavior or actions. Whether your injury is the result of someone’s negligence or the result of a faulty product or service, you should not suffer as a result. If you were injured in an avoidable accident caused by someone who breached their care of duty to you, you may be eligible for compensation.
As a victim of someone else’s irresponsible actions, you should not be in pain with medical bills to pay and unable to earn the income to support yourself and your family. If this is your situation, you may be in need of a personal injury lawyer. For a compassionate and experienced lawyer, call our personal injury law firm, Cohen & Cohen for a free case evaluation today. Someone will be available for you day or night, seven days a week.
If someone has caused you bodily injury or harm and you live in Virginia, Maryland, or Washington, D.C., you must prove that your injury was caused by another party’s careless or reckless actions in order to win a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

Who You are up Against?
If you are suffering from any of the above injuries or even ones that are not listed here, there is a good chance that you will benefit from having a personal injury lawyer on your side. Defendants in personal injury lawsuits run the gamut from companies to insurance agencies to individuals. Regardless of who they are, their goal will be to pay as little money as possible to the plaintiff, no matter how seriously the victim was injured. The defendant’s lawyers will work very hard to pay nothing at all, in fact. For this reason, if you don’t have your own lawyer, you risk not receiving fair compensation.
Statute of Limitations
There is a statute of limitations in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. that applies to all personal injury cases, no matter how big or small the damage claim. Therefore, there is a limited time frame in which a victim can file their case. Whether your injuries were caused by accident, malicious intent, or a defect in a product’s design, production, or labeling, you have the right to seek compensation for economic and noneconomic damages. If you have been hurt through no fault of your own, it is important that you consult a personal injury attorney if you believe you have a claim. Doing this can help you to protect your right to file suit.
