Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Wrongful death lawyers can help in your time of need.Losing a loved one is never easy but when their death is because of someone’s negligent, reckless or malicious behavior, many people find it beneficial to enlist the help of a wrongful death law firm Maryland families of wrongful death victims can trust.

When an innocent person dies because of somebody else’ actions or in some cases, inactions, the deceased’s remaining family members may be entitled to compensation. Even though money cannot bring a loved one back nor will it take away the pain and grief of losing them, it can benefit a family so that they do not have to suffer financially in the long run. It does not matter whether the person who caused a loved one’s death has been charged with criminal actions, the remaining family members may be able to seek compensation in a civil lawsuit. While this may benefit a family who has lost someone they love, it may also help to protect others from becoming victims of this same person or party’s wrongful actions. Pursuing a guilty person through a civil lawsuit is sometimes the only incentive a person or entity has to correct their negligent, reckless or malicious behaviors and actions.

Wrongful death and personal injury laws differ from state to state. If a loved one has died in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC or the surrounding areas, it may be in the remaining family member’s best interest to discuss their situation with a wrongful death law firm Maryland is fortunate to have in its midst. Cohen & Cohen has successfully been defending the rights of wrongful death victims and their families for over 30 years. We know the importance of treating a grieving family with compassion and respect while fiercely pursuing the plaintiff (or plaintiffs) in the family’s wrongful death claim. Someone from our dedicated legal team is available to discuss your situation and to give you a free case evaluation. We believe in helping our clients by shouldering the legal aspects of their tragedy so that they do not have to- and so they can focus on grieving and healing, and trying to put the pieces of their shattered lives back together.

Common Wrongful Death Claims

Motor Vehicle Accidents Motor vehicle accidents cause approximately 35,000 deaths per year.
It does not matter whether an accident was caused by a commercial or private driver, a bicycle
rider or pedestrian- if their actions are deemed as negligent, reckless or malicious, they may be
liable for the accident.

Workplace Accidents A person does not need to work in a dangerous or industrial setting to be
injured or killed while on the job. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligent, reckless or malicious actions, they may be liable for the accident.

Medical Malpractice If a physician, hospital or other healthcare provider causes a patient an injury or to become unwell, or fails to diagnose an illness or condition, or does not provide the proper standard of care to a patient, they may be liable for that person’s death.

The above are just a few of the more common types of wrongful death claims. Assaults and other forms of violence, dangerous and defective products, nursing home abuse and neglect, and premise liability accidents can all be considered wrongful death claims, as are many reasons not mentioned here.

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.
