If you've been injured, we can help
Many people in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania love to ride motorcycles. They love the feeling of freedom they get and take great care to ride safely and responsibly. But it only takes one negligent driver to cause an accident that leaves them seriously injured. The Cherry Hill motorcycle accident attorneys at Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC help injury victims recover financial compensation.
People hurt in motorcycle accidents often face mounting medical bills, while they are often left unable to work because of their injuries. This puts them in a very tough financial situation. As with car accidents, insurance companies are supposed to help. But they often try to keep their payments as low as possible, to keep their profits as high as possible.
The injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents can be severe, as motorcyclists have little protection in a crash. These include traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury and injuries to internal organs. Less severe injuries include broken bones and muscle injuries. Crash victims may require surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery can take months. Some never fully recover.
Another problem injured motorcyclists face is stereotypes. Insurance companies often think of motorcyclists as reckless risk-takers who don't act responsibly. So when there's an accident, they assume the motorcyclist must have done something wrong. This makes it even harder to get the financial compensation you deserve for your accident.

Experienced litigators who don't quit
Our firm has been helping people injured in motorcycle accidents recover financial compensation since 1995. We know the tactics insurance companies use to try to deny accident victims compensation. And we aren't interested in making a quick settlement that doesn't come close to meeting your needs.
Our legal team investigates your accident and knows where to look for evidence that another driver's negligence led to your injuries. We determine the true amount of damages you've suffered, including past and future medical expenses related to your injury, lost wages, and other damages. We build a strong case and aggressively fight to get you the compensation you should receive.
We use a team litigation approach, which means that while one attorney will represent you, you get the benefit of the combined experience of all our attorneys. Some used to defend insurance companies and know how to overcome the tactics they use to keep payouts low. Some are board-certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court in the area of civil trial law, including our founder, Adam Kotlar.
We know how to get results
Some referrals to our firm come from defense attorneys and insurance adjusters. These are people we've fought against in other cases, who represent insurance companies. But they have seen how hard we work for clients and know the results we get.
We are always seeking a favorable resolution for your case through a negotiated settlement. But we won't back down from what we think is right. If the insurance company won't agree to a settlement that meets your needs, we will fight for you in court. Our experienced trial attorneys know how to get results.
