Car Accident Lawyer In Cleveland

On average in the United States every 12 minutes someone dies because of a car accident and every 14 seconds, a car accident results in an injured victim. What this sad statistic tells us is that no matter how responsible you drive your car, nobody on the road is immune from a negligent or reckless driver. We have all seen drivers weaving in and out of traffic, speeding past you on the highway, or staring down at their phones. Unfortunately, bad things can happen to good people, and good drivers too.

When a car accident happens, it is a complete shock to your system. Most people have no idea what to do. One moment you’re completely fine and in the next moment you’re suffering from a serious injury. From driving in your car to riding in the ambulance. Sometimes car accident victims do not realize how seriously injured they are until the shock wears off a day or two later. If you are injured in a car accident, no matter how minor or severe, it can be a frightening and complicated situation. At some point, you are going to have a lot of questions and you need the right answers.

The answer to your questions will usually depend on the unique circumstances of your car accident and your specific injury. The Cohen Law Firm has the knowledge, experience, and expertise to answer your car accident questions and navigate you through the legal system to obtain maximum compensation.

After a car accident injury, you should never attempt to settle your case with an insurance company unless you confidently know the answer to a few specific questions. In fact, you should never even discuss your injuries with an insurance company until you absolutely know the right answers to these key questions:

  1. How long is it going to take for me to fully recover from my injuries or will I ever fully recover from my injuries? (How long am I going to suffer pain or disability?)
  2. How long am I going to need medical treatment for my injuries?
  3. How much will my total medical bills be? (Not just the ambulance bill or emergency room bills, but the medical bills two months from now or five years from now?)
  4. What are the total costs of my injuries? (How much have I lost in wages, time, and expense already? How much will it cost me in the future?)

Insurance companies aggressively try to settle car accident claims as quickly and cheaply as possible. Insurance companies want to settle the claim before you know the answers to the key questions about your injuries and expenses and before you hire an attorney who knows how to get you the compensation you deserve. The Cohen Law Firm knows how to get you the compensation you deserve.
