Frequently Asked Questions - Personal Injury

I want to file a personal injury claim. What should I do?
If you are thinking about filing a personal injury claim, the first thing you should do is to write down everything related to your accident and/or injury. If you were treated by a physician, you should compile your medical records. Once you have gathered this information, you should meet with an experienced Palm Springs personal injury lawyer, like the lawyers at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. The legal team at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. will review your case and then advise you of your legal options. If they feel you should move forward with a personal injury claim, they will help you initiate the legal process.

I have been injured by another person. Can I file a lawsuit?
It depends. In order to file a personal injury lawsuit against another person, you will have to prove that the person acted negligently or recklessly. You will also have to prove that because the person was negligent, you sustained your injuries. This is never easy to accomplish on your own, which is why you will find it most advantageous to work with a personal injury law firm, such as Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.

Why do I need a personal injury lawyer instead of a general lawyer?
Personal injury is a very complex and comprehensive area of law. Most lawyers who have a general practice do not have substantial case experience or training in this unique niche of law, which means they may not be able to produce exceptional results. Instead of taking a chance, people should always work with lawyers who have years of experience in personal injury law when filing a claim. This will not only expedite the process, but ensure that people are provided with representation from lawyers who understand personal injury laws and are able to retain fair verdicts and settlements.

Can I get compensation for my injuries?
If your case is successful, you may be awarded a settlement or verdict which will allow you to obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, injuries, property damage and pain and suffering. However, case results will vary person-to-person.

Why should I work with Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.?
When it comes to personal injury cases, Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. has the experience, skills and training it takes to win verdicts and negotiate settlements. In the past few years, Cohn & Swartzon has retained $45 million in verdicts and settlements for their California clients.

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”
