Trusted Legal Advocacy After A Serious Auto Accident
Auto accidents are an unfortunate fact of life in New York City. But most accidents are preventable and can be attributed to negligence. If you’ve been injured in a crash caused by another driver’s poor decisions, Cohan Law PLLC is ready to help you seek the compensation you need and deserve.
No Matter How You Were Injured, We Can Help
Attorney Mike Cohan has been representing auto accident victims in New York for more than a decade. He is ready to advocate for you after any type of accident scenario, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck and commercial vehicle accidents
- Municipal vehicle crashes (garbage trucks, police cars, ambulances, etc.)
- Motorcycle crashes
- Pedestrian and bicyclist injuries
- Rideshare accidents (Uber and Lyft)
- Taxi accidents
- Accidents involving buses and other public transportation
Our team will calculate all expenses related to your crash, including medical bills, lost wages and property damage. We take the time to help you asses the full extent of your injuries to make sure that you receive the treatment you need and that your medical records accurately reflect your physical condition following the accident.
Thorough Investigation Is Critical
Law enforcement agencies in New York are always busy, which means they have little time or attention to devote to writing accurate accident reports. When you hire our firm, attorney Mike Cohan will conduct his own thorough investigation into the accident to determine why it happened and who was at fault. He will also ensure that inaccurate accident reports are corrected or refuted, and he will gather as much evidence from the scene as possible, including any video recordings of the crash.
We Deal With Insurance Companies So You Don’t Have To
One of the most difficult and frustrating aspects of recovery after an auto accident is trying to communicate and negotiate with insurers – even your own. Insurance companies are primarily concerned with their own profits, and the way they maximize profits is by denying and minimizing claims. They have entire legal teams devoted to protecting their interests – not yours.
An insurance adjuster will reach out to you with the stated intention of trying to help. But as they talk to you, they may be asking questions to lead you to admit fault for the crash, to say that your injuries are minor or to make other statements that resolve the insurer of liability. And when it comes time to resolve your claim, the insurer will likely make a settlement offer that is far less than your case is worth and far less than what you need to cover your expenses.
When you hire our firm, you won’t have to speak to either your or the other driver’s insurance company. We’ll represent you in all communications and negotiations, ensuring your rights are protected and that your claim isn’t undermined by dishonest or misleading tactics. If insurers and the at-fault driver refuse to make a reasonable settlement offer, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial.
