Trial lawyers Richard Jaffe and Stephen Cohen and the team of attorneys at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP, have more than 100 years of combined experience in personal injury litigation, including workplace accidents. They have recovered compensation for many scenarios:
Some people believe that “foreigners” or “illegal aliens” have no rights when they are injured at work. This is simply not true. Undocumented workers, visa workers and green card immigrants have the same standing to sue for personal injury as any U.S. citizen. Cohen & Jaffe has strong ties to the Hispanic community and has represented many undocumented citizens in workplace accident claims. (See immigrant injury rights.)
We represent clients in any occupation, from building trades, factory workers and truck drivers to health care, law enforcement, and fire and rescue personnel. Attorney Richard Jaffe is himself a licensed EMT (emergency medical technician). His medical training is a key advantage in recovering damages for serious workplace injuries, including back or neck injuries, shoulder or knee injuries, spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury.
We take prompt action and work closely with clients to put them in the most favorable legal position. We take photos, obtain accident reports, examine any video footage and talk to witnesses. We consult with experts to inspect machinery or reconstruct accidents. We make sure that our clients are getting proper medical care, including finding doctors who take workers’ compensation cases.
