We Handle a Broad Spectrum of Personal Injury Cases
We know that suffering a serious personal injury is traumatic physically, emotionally, and financially. Whatever circumstances have brought you to seek our legal representation, our personal injury attorneys will treat you with concern and respect. We will not charge you attorneys’ fees unless we win or otherwise obtain damages for you. Types of personal injury cases we handle include, but are not limited to:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are much too frequent on our roads. The National Safety Council reports that nearly 5 million traffic accidents occur in the U.S. annually and the fatality rate is on the rise, even though car manufacturers have developed new safety features for vehicles.
Our experienced personal injury attorneys will fight to see to it that you receive the compensation you need to move forward. Some motor vehicle accident cases our legal team handles include:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle and scooter accidents
- Bicycle, skateboard, and skating accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
Whether you have been hurt by a negligent, reckless, distracted, or impaired driver or as a result of a failed traffic signal or unrepaired pothole, our legal team will investigate and target the responsible parties.
The law requires all property owners to keep their property safe for others, commonly known as premises liability. If you have been seriously injured on someone else’s property — whether in a trip or slip and fall due to a defect (e.g. raised or cracked sidewalk or walkway, design defect, pothole, depression), slippery surface (e.g. floor, stair, ramp), protruding object, or by a dog bite, you may well be entitled to substantial compensation, not only for your out-of-pocket medical costs and lost income, but for your pain and suffering.
Whether the accident occurred at a bank, post office, supermarket, public space, or a neighbor’s home, the property owner can be sued for damages for failing to provide a safe environment. You have the right to seek compensation from any liable party, including friends and family, who oftentimes have insurance coverage designed to protect them from paying damages out-of-pocket and to protect you, the injured.
It is frightening to realize that healthcare mistakes and negligence occur with alarming frequency.
It is awful enough to think of such mistakes being made due to distraction, poor judgment, or ineptitude, but there are even cases in which doctors impaired by alcohol or drugs impair patients’ lives, or healthcare workers who intentionally harm patients. Our medical malpractice lawyers are prepared to use all the tools in our arsenal to win the damages you are legally entitled to if you have suffered harm in this manner.
A certain number of products are defective or contaminated due to design or production errors. Sometimes, companies fail to detect such problems, putting the public at risk. Even more troubling, some corporations seek to protect their bottom line by continuing to sell dangerous merchandise.
If you, or someone you love, has been harmed by a defective tool, vehicle, toy, or tainted food (e.g. food or drinks containing foreign objects such as vermin) or medication, you can depend on our product liability legal team to do everything in our power to defend your right to restitution.
In worst-case scenarios, personal injury results in wrongful death. At Kohan Law Group, we are well aware that nothing can bring back your lost loved one, or reduce the pain of knowing that the death was avoidable. Still, we will do all we can to ensure that you receive justice in terms of a settlement or verdict that acknowledges all you and your family have endured.
In addition to funds to pay for final medical costs and funeral expenses, we will fight to obtain damages for the support you have lost.
What if you bear some responsibility for your own injury?
There are, of course, accidents in which the victim bears some blame. For example, a pedestrian hit by a car driven recklessly may have been crossing against the light; or, the person who fell on a broken step may have been impaired by medication. In either case, the New York principle of pure comparative negligence may apply. Our attorneys can fight to win you compensation for your injury even if you are partly, even majorly, responsible for the accident in which you were hurt.
The word “pure” in this context means that you, as the injured party, can be compensated no matter what percentage of blame the court assigns to you — even if you are more at fault than the other party. Your awarded damages, however, will be decreased by your perceived percentage of blame. So, if the court awards you $500,000 in damages but assigns you 10 percent of the blame for your injury, you will actually receive $450,000.
