Helping injured victims recover financial compensation
We usually don't think of walking as a dangerous activity. But every year, pedestrians are seriously injured after being hit by a car or truck. They can be left with serious injuries and may miss significant time from work, resulting in lost income. The experienced Cherry Hill car accident attorneys at Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC hold negligent parties responsible.
Pedestrians are almost always hit by cars or trucks for the same reasons car accidents happen - drivers were being negligent. Drivers may have been drinking, or texting, or speeding. They either lose control of their vehicle, or take their eyes off the road, resulting in a pedestrian getting hurt.
The injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents are often very serious, as pedestrians have no protection during a crash. They can suffer injuries to the head, neck and back; broken bones and even loss of limbs. Their injuries can have a permanent impact on their life, and they may require medical care for years.
Drivers in pedestrian accidents may deny responsibility. And insurance companies are always looking for ways to pay out as little as possible. The insurance company may even suggest that you were somehow to blame. If they make you a settlement offer, it will likely fall far short of meeting your needs.
Accident victims in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania trust us
That's why you need an experienced attorney who knows how to hold negligent drivers accountable and fight insurance companies for the compensation you need and deserve. Our firm has been helping victims of pedestrian accidents since our founding in 1995. We know how to get results.
Some of our attorneys, including founder Adam Kotlar, are board-certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court in the area of civil trial law. Not many attorneys in the state can say that. In fact, fewer than 3% of attorneys in New Jersey are board-certified in any area of specialty. That's because it's a lengthy process that takes a lot of hard work. But we believe being able to better represent our clients is worth it.
Our legal team investigates your accident to find evidence that the driver was being negligent. Then we determine the full amount of your damages. This often includes past and future medical expenses for your injury, as well as lost wages if you are unable to work. You may also be able to seek damages (financial compensation) for pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement.
Make our team your team
We use a team litigation approach at our law firm. That means while you are represented by one of our attorneys, you get the benefit of the combined experience of all our attorneys. Some are board-certified in civil trial law and have a thorough knowledge of the legal issues. Others are former defense attorneys who know the tactics insurance companies use to try to pay you as little as possible.
Our attorneys are not interested in making a quick settlement with the insurance company. Our goal is to get you a resolution of your case that meets your needs, and we are ready to fight for you in court, if that's what it takes.
