Civil vs. Criminal Cases


The Cochran Firm has both civil claims and criminal defense lawyers in our offices across the country.
While both civil and criminal cases are serious matters, there are also some significant differences between them.  Those include:
  • A criminal case concerns crimes against the state or society as a whole. A civil case is when one party commits an offense against another party.
  • In a civil case, the person or group bringing the suit is called a plaintiff. In a criminal case, the government brings the suit and is known as the prosecutor.
  • The victim does not bring the case to court in a criminal suit.
  • In a criminal case, the burden of proof is “beyond a reasonable doubt.” In a civil case, the plaintiff merely needs to prove his case by “the preponderance of evidence,” which basically means that it’s more likely than not than the defendant is guilty.
  • Most criminal cases are tried in front of a jury, while civil cases are often tried by a judge.
  • Defendants in a civil case are not entitled to a court-provided attorney, while criminal defendants must be given a criminal defense lawyer.
These are just a few of the differences between a civil and a criminal case. If you need further information about your claim, you can speak with a civil claims attorney or a criminal defense lawyer at The Cochran Firm.
If you need an experienced civil claims or criminal defense lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free, no-obligation initial consultation at one of our offices nationwide.

Nursing Home Abuse: Fractures and Falls


It’s an all-too-common sight in American nursing homes: a loved one who has suffered a major fracture as a result of the fall. Even worse, many of these falls are easily preventable by nursing home staff. If your loved one has suffered a fracture as a result of negligence or outright abuse by nursing home staff, our experienced nursing home abuse lawyers can help.
You and your loved one have a right to expect quality, conscientious care from the nursing home staff.
Our nursing home abuse lawyers have seen elderly loved ones who have suffered fractures and falls as a result of:
  • Physical abuse by staff
  • Poor supervision
  • Improperly secured beds
  • Staff allowing patients to wander without care
The personal injuries suffered in these cases are severe, and the weakened physical state of most nursing home residents makes them uniquely vulnerable in the event of a fall.
If you have any questions about nursing home abuse, lawyers at The Cochran Firm will be happy to answer them.
We offer free initial consultations with our nursing home abuse lawyers. If you have a claim, we can help you pursue justice and compensation.
If you need an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free, no-obligation initial consultation at one of our offices nationwide.
