How Can a Trucking Accident Lawyer Gaithersburg, MD Trusts Help with Truck Accident Injuries?

trucking accident lawyer Gaithersburg MDIf you or someone you love has been injured by a negligent or reckless truck driver in Gaithersburg or someplace else in Maryland, or if someone close to you has tragically died from this, you may find it helpful to discuss your rights with a reputable trucking accident lawyer Gaithersburg, MD truck accident victims and their families can rely on.

At Cohen & Cohen we have been advocating for truck accident victims and their families for 25 years. We have built a solid reputation for diligently working to get victims the financial compensation they are entitled to for the losses they have suffered in these often devastating crashes.

Tragically, many truck accident victims do not survive these crashes and for those that do survive, they are frequently left with catastrophic disabilities. Some of the more common types of truck accident injuries that a trucking accident lawyer from our firm who is licensed to practice in Gaithersburg, MD often see, include the following:

Back and Neck Injuries

These types of injuries can range from minor back or neck pain to more severe injuries, such as herniated discs of the victim’s spine. Injuries to the back or neck often leave victims unable to work or even go about their daily activities.

Fractured Bones

The impact of a tractor-trailer smashing into a smaller vehicle often creates such force that victim’s bones are easily fractured.

A trucking accident lawyer in Gaithersburg, MD cannot fix broken bones but they can help to make the person or party responsible for a victim’s broken bones, accountable for their actions.

Head Injuries

Any type of injury to the head can result in traumatic brain injury. It is import to realize, however, that a victim can sustain a dangerous injury to the brain even if there is no direct trauma or hit to their head. For example, whiplash is caused when there is a jerking back and forth of the neck. Even a minor case of whiplash can result in dangerous symptoms if left untreated, including nausea, confusion, cognitive issues, and vision difficulties.

Many truck accident victims who suffer a brain injury are often left with permanent cognitive and motor problems.

Many people who have suffered head injuries as the result of a truck accident, and the people who care about these victims, find it helpful to find out their rights by talking to a trucking accident lawyer in Gaithersburg or the place in Maryland that the accident occured.

Internal Injuries

Internal injuries are some of the most frightening kinds of injuries because they often have silent symptoms that do not become evident until the victim’s condition becomes dire. The blunt trauma from the crash can cause bleeding to occur in any of the victim’s organs, including their bladder, kidney, liver, pancreas, and spleen.

A trucking accident lawyer who is experienced at successfully defending truck accident victims with internal injuries in Gaithersburg and throughout MD, may be able to help you decide what steps you should take to protect your or your loved one’s rights.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Just like the other injuries explained here, the force caused when the massive truck slams into the vehicle results in much more severe injuries than in crashes involving vehicles of similar size. Injuries to the spinal cord are one of the most devastating because they often lead to paralysis for the victim.

Wrongful Death

Studies show that victims are ten times more likely to not die in a truck accident than other types of crashes. Families are left to not only deal with the emotional anguish of losing their loved one, but also the loss of the financial support the victim provided for their family. Especially, if the victim was the primary breadwinner, this can result in serious financial hardship.

When a loved one suddenly dies because of someone else’s negligent or reckless actions, their surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for expenses caused by their loved one’s death.  A trucking accident lawyer in Gaithersburg, MD or wherever your loved one’s accident occurred may be able to make it much easier for a family to get compensation than if they were to try to do this on their own.

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.
