Personal Injury Accidents Routinely Handled by Jones Kahan Law

You will be relieved as soon as you realize that we will be taking over all insurance and legal aspects of your case, giving you the time you need to rest and recover. Our talented attorneys have extensive experience with traffic accidents of all kinds, so if you or a family member has been hurt in one of the following, please contact us promptly:

Each type of traffic accident has its own set of specific details. We will frame our legal strategy around the particulars of your case. Much depends, for example, upon whether you were enclosed in a vehicle, riding a motorcycle or bicycle, or on foot. There are added legal and insurance complications that must be addressed if you were riding on any kind of public transportation or a rideshare vehicle. Circumstances can differ if you were harmed due to negligent driving or a manufacturing defect in one of the vehicles involved. No matter what the situation, Jones Kahan Law’s personal injury lawyers are here to defend you and protect your rights.

At Jones Kahan Law we also negotiate and/or litigate premises liability cases, i.e. personal injury cases that result from negligence on the part of a property owner. If you slip and fall and receive a serious injury because your neighbors front stoop was in dangerous disrepair, or if you have been bitten by a dog, we can also litigate and assist you in receiving appropriate damages.

What type of injuries are considered catastrophic?

The law defines a catastrophic injury as one that permanently prevents an individual from performing any gainful employment. Such injuries include traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury which may result in:

  • Loss of sight, hearing, or sensation
  • Neuromuscular damage that impairs mobility
  • Cognitive impairment

Other severe injuries, due to bad or multiple bone fractures, excessive bleeding, serious burns, or other injuries that result in organ damage or removal or limb amputation, are equally awful. If you or a loved one has suffered any of these, Jones Kahan Law is eager to help you through this difficult time and prepare you to withstand a challenging future.

What is wrongful death?

Sometimes a serious personal injury leads to a fatality. Though in such cases the victim has tragically passed away, his or her loved ones are entitled to file a suit of “wrongful death,” meaning that the negligence, recklessness, or even malicious intent of another has taken a life. If the court finds in our favor, damages will be awarded to one or more close survivors to cover:

  • Burial, cremation and/or funeral costs
  • Medical bills before death
  • The victim’s pain and suffering from the final injuries
  • Loss of wages of the deceased, now and going forward
  • Loss of consortium and/or counsel or guidance

We know that we can never take away your grief. Nonetheless, we are determined to ensure that you do not suffer financial instability in addition to the longing for the loved one you’ve lost.

Damages Jones Kahan Can Win for You

If you have been seriously hurt by another person or entity (such as a car manufacturer), Jones Kahan will work diligently to get you compensatory damages. These include:

Economic damages — which cover expenses such as medical and rehabilitative costs, lost income ( present and future), property damage (e.g. car repair or replacement) and costs for services you can no longer perform (e.g. house cleaning, dog walking, child care), psychological counseling for PTSD, anxiety or depression resulting from the trauma
Non-economic damages — which compensate for losses much harder to quantify, such as physical pain, emotional suffering, loss of consortium, disfigurement, or loss of enjoyment of life

If your accident involved gross negligence, recklessness, or lack of concern for human life, for example if the other party was driving while impaired or engaging in drag racing on a public street, we may also be able to win punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for wanton behavior and to discourage others who might consider engaging in such behavior in the future.
