We help injury victims recover compensation in New Jersey
Most of us use our cars every day to go to work, take the kids to school, visit family and friends or go shopping. But a car accident can happen suddenly and change your life in an instant. You can be left with serious injuries and may be unable to work. Many people aren't sure what to do next. Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC can help.
Despite the fact that car accidents are common occurrences throughout New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, most people are unprepared when they or a family member are severely injured in one. First, if you are hurt in a car accident, you should immediately seek medical attention. Then as soon as possible, you should consult a Cherry Hill car accident attorney.
Insurance claims adjusters may try to talk you out of seeking a car accident attorney. That's because they work for the insurance company, which is trying to pay out as little money as possible and as fast as possible, in the event your injuries are more serious than you originally contemplated.
If you are injured in a car crash, you need someone who is looking after your interests and who will fight to maximize your compensation and your benefits. Insurance companies have lawyers advising them on how to try to settle for the lowest amount. You need an aggressive attorney on your side working equally hard to ensure you maximize your recovery.
We handle all types of car accident claims, including:
- Head on collisions
- Drunk driving accidents
- Car accidents caused by driver distraction, such as a cell phone or texting
- Uninsured motorist claims
- Underinsured motorist claims
- Rear end collisions
Car accidents involving serious injury, including brain damage, head injury, spine or back injury, whiplash and soft tissue injury, broken bones, severe scarring and other serious injuries that prevent you from enjoying the quality of life prior to your accident
We hold negligent parties responsible
Most car accidents happen because a driver was negligent. Another driver may have been distracted, or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, or driving too fast. Our legal team investigates your accident thoroughly. We know where to find evidence that the driver was negligent. We build a strong case that the insurance company can't ignore.
We also determine the full amount of damages you have suffered. These may include past and future medical expenses related to your injuries, lost wages if you are unable to work, and other damages such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
We are trial attorneys who are not interested in settling your case quickly and cheaply. Our goal is a resolution of your case that meets your needs, and we are prepared to fight for you in court, if that's what it takes.
Some of our attorneys, including founder Adam Kotlar, are board-certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court in the area of civil trial law. Others used to represent insurance companies and know the tactics they use to try to deny you compensation. Our team litigation approach means that you get the benefit of our combined experience.
If you were injured in a car accident, you need experienced legal representation to protect your rights.

If you can't come to us, we'll come to you - in your home, in your hospital bed or anywhere that is convenient for you.
