Knowledgeable Assistance from an Annapolis Personal Injury Defense Attorney
If you have been accused of causing a personal injury, get the help you need
Personal injury cases can be particularly challenging to defend due to the large amounts of documentation and evidence that they often involve. The consequences of being convicted can be severe, so it is important that you understand exactly what you might be facing in order to defend yourself. These cases can be a nightmare to handle if you don’t have the assistance of a knowledgeable Maryland defense attorney. My name is Gill Andrew Cochran, and I know what it takes to help someone who’s been injured by an act of negligence.
What is considered a personal injury?
Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. My clients have come to me in the past for help with claims involving:
- Auto accidents
- Accidents at work
- Tripping or slip and fall incidents
- Premises liability
- Product liability
- Accidents while on vacation
- Toxic exposure
Personal injury claims often involve an accusation of negligence. To prove negligence, the plaintiff must show four general elements:
- You were owed a duty of care
- Another person or entity breached that duty, or failed to act in the way he, she or it was supposed to act.
- That breach caused your injury.
- The injury caused financial losses.
The details of a personal injury claim can be complicated. Defending the case may require input from medical professionals, engineers, or scientists. You need a seasoned personal injury attorney who can analyze the information and effectively argue against it in a court of law. When accidents occur, don’t ever give statements or admit fault. Secure the services of an attorney before speaking with Anyone.
