Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Wrongful Death LawyerNobody wants to believe that a wrongful death may occur in their family. Unfortunately, wrongful death cases happen far more often than we would like to think. In fact, according to a recent study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are upwards of 146,000 wrongful deaths each year in the United States alone. When families experience these tragedies, it is important they have the proper knowledge to know to reach out to professional legal counsel in order to help them get their fair compensation in a time of need. If you or someone you love believes they have been victims of a wrongful death in their family, it may be in your best interest to reach out to Cohen & Cohen, a group of experienced lawyers serving the Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, and surrounding areas, whose mission is to help victims like you deal with wrongful death cases.

What is a wrongful death?

Many people are unaware of what actually qualifies as a wrongful death suit. After all, while all death is tragic, death that results because of somebody else’s fault is a travesty. A wrongful death, in legal terms, deals with deaths that occur as a result of somebody’s negligent misconduct, or less commonly, as a result of someone’s deliberate actions to harm another. A lawsuit for wrongful death usually involves suing the party responsible for the death in order to receive compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, and any monetary value the family loses with the death of a loved one.

What are some examples of a wrongful death case?

Every wrongful death case is different. As long as somebody else is at fault for your loved one’s passing, then there are grounds to sue. However, there are some commonalities among each case that point to a wrongful death case. Some common examples of what a wrongful death suit could look like include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • A motor vehicle accident
  • Medical and/surgical mistake that leads to death
  • Fatal accidents in the workplace (such as construction)
  • Criminal activity
  • Death under supervision (such as drowning when a lifeguard is present)
  • Exposure to dangerous toxins or other related substances
  • Faulty products (such as poisonous food)

Why should I hire a lawyer?

Regardless of the way the death is caused, all result in the same thing: the loss of your loved one. This can be an incredibly painful process, and you shouldn’t have to worry about mounting medical expenses in dealing with your loved one’s passing. Whether it be funeral expenses or the loss of income it may cause, finances can be a stresser especially at your time of need. By hiring a skilled lawyer, you can reduce the stress by having some to help guide you through the process. A professional attorney, like any one on our team at Cohen & Cohen, will fight for you to receive your fair compensation no matter who you’re up against. Wrongful death suits can claim upwards of a hundred million dollars, so you shouldn’t wait.

Do not hesitate to call Cohen & Cohen and we will immediately put you in contact with a wrongful death lawyer on our team.

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.
