Have you been injured in a pedestrian accident? The Law Office of Cohen and Jaffe, LLP can help you fight for compensation. Our law firm believes in taking a client-centered approach to handling pedestrian accident cases like yours. Most personal injury law firms handle cases every day. In fact, some of them handle so many cases that clients can feel more like their case is a piece on an assembly line.
Our Freeport pedestrian accident attorneys understand that your accident was a traumatic event. We also know that the only case that matters to you is yours. We want you to feel like you’re our only client. We pride ourselves on keeping a manageable caseload which allows us to be attentive to the needs of all of our clients.
Can I Afford an Attorney After an Accident?
If you are suffering from injuries caused in a pedestrian accident, you’re probably already worried about the bills. Ambulance bills, hospital bills and the cost of ongoing physical therapy can quickly add up, especially if you’re not working. So, it’s perfectly reasonable for you to wonder whether you can even afford an attorney.
A better question is whether you can afford not to have an attorney. Regardless of how high the mountain of medical bills gets, one thing is certain; the attorney or insurance company representing the driver in your pedestrian accident is on a mission to resolve your case as inexpensively as possible.
That outcome may work out well for the stockholders in their insurance company, but it may not work out so well for you. The reality is that you have as much of a right to a favorable resolution to your particular case as the other party (or their insurance company). That’s why we proudly take cases on a contingency basis.
What Is a Contingency Fee?
What does that mean for you? It means that our compensation is tied to the outcome of your case. Simply put, if we’re not able to obtain a settlement or award, there is no fee for you. That’s why whenever you work with the Law Office of Cohen and Jaffe, LLP, you can be confident that we’re fighting to get you the best result possible.
What Can the Law Office of Cohen and Jaffe, LLP do for Me?
We pride ourselves on service to our clients. That’s why we have four ‘core principles’ that we follow for all cases:
- Accessibility – We maintain a manageable caseload that allows our partners to interact regularly with clients and keep them in the know about the status of their case. Our founding partner Richard Jaffe believes in returning client calls personally and promptly.
- Affordability – We take personal injury cases on a contingency basis. That means we don’t get paid until you get paid. If we aren’t able to reach a positive financial settlement in your case, you owe us nothing.
- Open and Honest Representation – We believe in being as transparent as possible with our clients; even if it means delivering news they don’t want to hear. It doesn’t serve anyone’s interests to inflate the potential value of your case just so you’ll sign up with our firm.
- The Client’s Right – We believe clients have the right to be represented with toughness, integrity and honesty. It’s your right to understand every step of the process surrounding your case and if you don’t we’ll make sure to explain it to you.
If we’re fortunate enough to represent you, we believe you will see and feel the difference.
If you are represented by the Law Office of Cohen and Jaffe, LLP, you’re going to know what’s going on with your case. You’re going to have your calls and inquiries returned promptly. You’re going to have the full benefit of our knowledge and experience. And you’re going to be represented with integrity.
What Is My Pedestrian Accident Case Worth?
There are a lot of variables in any accident, especially in a pedestrian accident, and no two cases are alike. These variables all go a long way in determining how much your case may potentially be worth.
- How fast was the other driver going?
- Were they under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident?
- Were they using their cell-phone when the accident occured?
- How severely are you injured?
- What if the other party was not a driver?
For example, you could have been walking down the street and gotten injured by falling debris from a construction site, or tripped over a sidewalk that wasn’t maintained properly by the municipal government where your accident occurred.
Regardless of the cause of your accident, the degree to which the other party was negligent and the severity of your injuries are all part of the recoverable damages equation. Examples of recoverable damages include, but are not limited to the following:
- Long term medical care
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Ambulance cost
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
When you consult with the Law Office of Cohen and Jaffe, LLP, we will take a global view of your case and examine all the facts. Once we have the full picture of all the variables in your case, we will be able to give you an idea of how much your case may potentially be worth.
