Experienced attorneys who can help you recover compensation
Nobody expects to be hurt in a personal injury accident. But in an instant, the negligence of someone else can leave you injured. Such injuries can be painful. Medical bills can add up fast. Fortunately, you're not alone. The Cherry Hill personal injury attorneys at Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC help people who have been hurt in a personal injury accident recover financial compensation.
The impact of a personal injury can be physical, emotional and financial. Injuries can range from sprains and strains to broken bones to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury. You will need medical treatment, which can be very costly. And if your injury leaves you unable to work, you can experience a loss of income.
Our attorneys can help you hold negligent parties responsible. We take legal action to get you the financial compensation you deserve for your injury so you can recover as much as possible from your accident.
Fighting for your rights
We aggressively pursue personal injury claims for clients throughout New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, including:
Our firm has been helping victims of personal injury accidents since 1995. We know how to build strong cases that get results. Sometimes we are able to negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company. If not, we are ready to fight for you in court. And in the courtroom, you can count on us to work tirelessly for you, including creating powerful visual courtroom displays that clearly explain to the jury why you deserve to win your case.
Personal injury cases can be difficult to move forward. Negligent parties deny responsibility. The insurance company will try to pay you as little as possible and may resist paying you anything at all. In some cases, they may offer you a settlement shortly after the accident. But it will likely fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered.
We will investigate your accident to find out what really happened. This includes reviewing all relevant documentation, including any police reports and medical records. It includes identifying and interviewing all witnesses. And if needed, we will consult with experts who can help us prove that negligence led to your injury.
Our attorneys will also determine the full impact your injury has had on your life. You may be able to seek damages (financial compensation) for:
- Past and future medical expenses related to your injury
- Lost wages if you are unable to work
- Disability and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Experience that gets results
Some of our attorneys are board-certified in the area of civil trial law by the New Jersey Supreme Court. Board certification is only granted after a lengthy and rigorous process that examines a lawyer's experience and reputation. A lawyer must also take continuing education courses in the field and pass a grueling 7-hour exam.
We also have attorneys who used to represent insurance companies. They know the tactics insurance companies use to avoid payment and how to fight back. We use a team litigation approach at our law firm. This means that while one attorney will represent you, you will benefit from the combined experience of our entire legal team.
If you were hurt in a personal injury accident, don't delay. Taking quick action helps us to build a stronger case, before evidence becomes lost and memories of witnesses fade. Learn more about how we can help. Schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys by calling 856-751-7676.
