At Cohen Injury Law Group, P.C., we strive to help personal injury victims know and exercise their rights following life-changing actions caused by another party’s negligence. While nothing can reverse time and stop a car accident, a slip and fall, a construction accident, or other incidents, our team can help victims and their families overcome such tragedies.
Ideally, following an accident, victims only need to file a claim and receive the compensation they need from their or the other party’s insurance company. Unfortunately, this isn’t the world we live in, and problems like medical debt and lost wages can force a victim into accepting a low settlement offer. People and their families have gone into medical debt following a personal injury.
Together with our founder Wayne R. Cohen, we’ve helped victims and their families overcome numerous obstacles for over three decades. We strive to help unheard victims who otherwise wouldn’t have the means to fight for the justice and compensation they deserve. Our founder attributes our law firm’s success to the “relentless passion to fight for the rights of seriously injured victims.”
To further our goal of helping the unheard in our society, we’ve created the Cohen Injury Law Group, P.C. Justice for the Unheard Scholarship. We’re confident that many students connect with our goal of helping those unheard in our society gain the recognition they deserve. We want to help a student gain the necessary education so that they can strive to create a more just society for those unheard, whether personal injury victims or marginalized groups based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, or religion.
