If you’ve been injured in a boating accident and looking for a personal injury lawyer, you’ve come to the right place.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a group of personal injury attorneys that help individuals and families pursue a lawsuit to recover damages for injuries sustained in an accident. This lawsuit could involve a boating accident, or a truck, motorcycle, or car accident, or medical malpractice, or wrongful death, or any kind of accident that has happened — and injured you — due to the negligence of another.
After a free consultation, if we decide to work together, it will be a contingency fee agreement. This means that we don’t get paid until we get a settlement (or court award) for you.
A boating accident case can get very complex, quickly. Who was really at fault? Who is really liable? Is it more than one party? Can negligence be proven? Is there a Coast Guard report? Were your injuries treated on-site? Are you facing long-term or permanent disability and/or disfigurement?
A personal injury lawyer from Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is ready to get to work immediately, answering your questions, interviewing witnesses, gathering reports and other documentation that is important in making a personal injury claim.
We may also recommend that you see a particular medical specialist for evaluation, or to have certain tests conducted, prior to defining damages and filing a personal injury lawsuit.
If you’ve been seriously injured, you are not only facing medical costs and lost wages, but also other damages that may be more difficult to quantify? Will you be able to return to the same job when you recover? Will you be able to return to work at all?
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. are ready to go to work for you to recover full compensation for your current and future medical expenses and lost wages — as well as your lost earning capacity if you are permanently disabled as a result of the boating accident. We can help you recover property damages (boat repairs or replacement), too, as well as damages for what is legally referred to as pain and suffering — which is about not only physical pain, but also the emotional pain that can accompany significant lifestyle changes.
Being injured on a boat does not automatically mean that someone was negligent. In legal terms, negligence is “the failure to act with reasonable care.” This means that when you file a personal injury lawsuit against one or more liable parties, you (and your attorney) must prove that these liable parties failed to act with reasonable care.
Successful litigation requires not only the gathering of evidence, but also the development of a successful legal strategy, and a high level of negotiating skill, which is employed in settlement hearings as well as in the courtroom.
