Personal injury law covers a wide range of accidents and injuries, from auto accidents to construction accidents to slip and fall accidents. Many of these types of accidents are addressed in detail in the practice areas section of our website. As a rule, personal injury is covered by tort law, which provides that the party responsible for causing or contributing to an accident is liable for the damages, injuries, or deaths resulting from the accident. The attorneys at Cogan & Power understand just how difficult it can be to recover physically, emotionally, financially, and psychologically from an unexpected injury.
At Cogan & Power, we take a collaborative, compassionate approach to legal representation. Not only do we advise our clients of their legal rights and assist them with their legal claims, but we also help them manage any employment-related consequences of the accident, and invest ourselves in their comprehensive recovery and overall well-being. We understand this it is often difficult for injured clients to travel, so we frequently meet with clients in their homes, and each client has a one-on-one relationship and direct communication with the partner handling the case. With almost 200 years of combined experience, Cogan & Power’s distinguished Chicago personal injury lawyers pride ourselves on providing clients with exceptional legal advice and personal attention in an effort to get you the results that you need and deserve.
