How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?

In legal terms, personal injury refers to any injury that a person may sustain to his or her body, mind, or emotions. However, in order for it to be considered a successful personal injury claim, the injured party and his or her legal counsel must be able to prove that the injury or condition was directly caused by the wrongdoing or negligence of another party. Several of the most common types of personal injury lawsuits stem from truck, motorcycle, boating, or car wrecks, as well as accidents at construction sites or cases in which a person slipped and fell on another party’s property.  If you or someone you love sustained a serious personal injury, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, or other life-threatening condition in the Atlantic City area and you feel that you have a viable case, contact Petro Cohen, P.C. as soon as possible for more information about pursuing a claim.

Can You Help Me Determine Who is Responsible?

One of the benefits of working with a personal injury lawyer is that he or she can provide counsel in areas that may be difficult to understand.  For example, an Atlantic City personal injury lawyer may be able to obtain police reports, speak to physicians or witnesses on behalf of the plaintiff, and arrange for expert testimonies that may not otherwise be able to be secured.

Additionally, the Atlantic City personal injury attorneys at Petro Cohen, P.C. can often help to recreate the scene of the accident or injury to prove negligence or fault in order to solidify your personal injury case.

How Do You Decide the Damages to Which I May be Entitled?

The amount of compensation that injured parties may receive is dependent upon several factors.  These include pain and suffering, medical expenses, or treatments not covered by insurance, and the amount of lost wages or loss of earning capacity.  No two personal injury cases are alike, so it is important to contact Petro Cohen, P.C. to determine whether you are entitled to pursue a claim in the Atlantic City area and to gain a better understanding of the amount of compensation that you may be eligible to recover.
