Injured truck driver - Nearly seven figure settlement after two previous attorneys advised that there was no chance of recovery and dropped the case.
Jason Cohn received a call at 6:00pm at the office from a colleague regarding a terrible truck accident his friend had been involved in. Both Saar Swartzon and Jason Cohn spoke with the client briefly on the telephone (with the use of a Spanish translator) and determined, as we often do, that an in person home consultation was necessary due to the person’s very severe injuries. Jason and Saar dropped what they were doing and immediately drove to the injured man’s home, even though it was after hours. After spending a little time getting to know this gentle man and his family, we quickly realized a pile of medical bills at the table where we were all sitting. It became clear from looking at this man that he had indeed suffered severe injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence. The horrific story unfolded–his co-truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and careened off the road into a freeway overpass, completely destroying the truck and its payload. The force of the impact was so great that it caused the engine to rip from its mounts and become airborne. The client’s legs, pelvis, spine, and head were severely injured. He was airlifted to several hospitals where he was treated by doctors for the polytrauma he endured from the accident.
The client went to a worker’s compensation attorney. After spending months working on his case, the attorney abruptly dropped his case after discovering the client’s employer had no worker’s compensation insurance. The client then consulted another attorney who failed to work on the case for six months and then dropped it because he didn’t feel that he could recover any money for the client.
Jason and Saar took the case and began digging to find some way to get the compensation the client deserved. Through hard work, diligence and persistence, Jason and Saar were able to find a commercial insurance policy for the employer. Though they fought hard not to cover the accident and the clients injuries but they eventually relented and COHN & SWARTZON, P.C. were able to get the insurance company to pay the entire policy out, nearly seven figures, pay off his medical bills and get the client a substantial recovery. Jose and his family can attempt to regain some normalcy in their lives and enjoy their time together.
"My personal experience with Cohn & Swartzon has been superb. They have provided expert legal advice, representation and counsel on a wide range of subject matters. I have personally recommended Cohn & Swartzon to several friends and colleagues."
"I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone seeking a fair settlement as a result of an auto accident. The Firm came highly recommended to me and I understand why. They took the time to explain what would happen, they aligned me with excellent medical care, and they were able to negotiate a fast and fair settlement for my injuries. Throughout the process the entire Firm was professional and supportive."
"It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can’t be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them."
"When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for."
"I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!"
"I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them."
“I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. This firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise."
"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."
I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm’s persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!
