Personal Injury

Have you or someone you love been injured? Was that injury due to the negligence of another person or entity? Are there medical bills to be paid? Did the injured party have to miss time from work as a result of the injury? Did the injury cause any permanent disability?

If you were seriously injured because of the negligent actions of another, you have a right to seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. In these cases, conduct that violates expected standard of care must be demonstrated and that violation must be shown to be the proximate cause of your injury.

The Cohen Legal Team has the experience to examine the circumstances surrounding your injury and determine who is LIABLE in the eyes of the law. We can then pursue an outcome that holds the appropriate party accountable and provides you with compensation for the DAMAGES you have suffered.

TO ENSURE YOU WILL HAVE ACCURATE INFORMATION:
Make sure you do the following:

  1. Write down the facts immediately, while it is fresh in your mind.
  2. Take pictures.  (of the cars involved, the scene, any injuries, etc.)
  3. Identify witnesses and get their name, phone number, address and statement.
  4. Get a copy of the State of Maryland Accident Police Report, once it is written.
