Truck Accidents Causing Fatalities

The experienced truck accident attorneys at the Cochran Firm have seen how negligence and misconduct can devastate the lives of the innocent victims of these crashes. Because of the massive size of many trucks on the nation’s highways, accidents involving them tend to be serious. And they often result in tragic deaths.

Our wrongful death attorneys don’t think you should have to carry the financial and psychological burden of losing a loved one by yourself. If the fatal truck accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, we can help.

Fatal truck accidents are often caused by:
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving to meet a tight schedule
  • Defective trucks
Our truck accident lawyers can help by investigating your case and determining the cause of the fatal accident. We can help you pursue compensation for:
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages of your loved one
  • Lost companionship
  • Funeral expenses
The sudden death of a loved one is always shocking and devastating. When it’s caused by a driver or company’s mistakes, you don’t have to suffer in silence.


If you lost a loved one in a truck accident and need an experienced lawyer to help, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.

Medical Malpractice in Nursing Homes

Residents of nursing homes have quite a few medical needs. Nursing home staff members have an obligation to provide a standard of care to their residents that meets those needs. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is one of the most common forms of negligence that our nursing home abuse lawyers see.

We expect nursing homes to take care of our loved ones in their hours of greatest need, but too many of them fail in this task. Our nursing home abuse lawyers have the experience to help if one of your loved one suffered as a result of medical malpractice in a nursing home.

Some common forms of nursing home medical malpractice include:
  • Medication errors
  • Improperly trained staff
  • A lack of attention to residents’ basic medical needs
  • No doctors or trained personnel on site
Whatever the specific cause of the malpractice, the results can be devastating. In particularly tragic cases nursing home residents have died as a result of medical malpractice.

Our nursing home abuse lawyers can answer any questions about nursing home abuse you might have and explain the entire legal process to you at a free initial consultation.

Emotional Consequences of Brain Injuries

One of the saddest aspects of brain injuries is that the effects are not solely physical. While the physical pain of these injuries is significant, just as consequential are the emotional effects. The brain injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm understand this reality and know that you deserve justice for your emotional and psychological pain.

Proving emotional damage is complicated, as psychological scars don’t show in the way physical scars do. Emotional pain is difficult to demonstrate. That’s why it’s so important you find a brain injury lawyer with a track record of success.

The emotional and psychological symptoms and effects of brain injuries often include:
  • Greatly altered personality
  • Mood swings
  • Agitation
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Changes to your sex drive

Every person is unique, and brain injuries affect individuals differently. You might well experience emotional changes that are not reflected in the above list.

Our brain injury lawyers have connections with experts in the field. We can have you evaluated by top doctors who understand the effects a brain injury can have on your personality. And we know how to make a compelling case in a courtroom.


If you were in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, suffered a brain injury and need an experienced lawyer to help you pursue justice and compensation, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.

Misbranding of Medical Devices

It’s crucial that medical device manufacturers properly and clearly label their products before shipping them. The Food and Drug Administration has strict rules regarding the labeling of medical devices. If manufacturers put a misleading label on their product, innocent people can get hurt.

At The Cochran Firm, our personal injury lawyers have seen how medical devices can hurt people when they are improperly or misleadingly labeled. Under federal law, the labels on medical devices must:
  •          Not be misleading or false in any way
  •          Contain wording that the FDA has required
  •          Contain accurate instructions for proper use of the device
  •          Not provide dosage level instructions or recommendations that can cause health problems


Even when the product is not a defective medical device a misleading label can result in a patient or doctor using the product incorrectly. When a medical device is used improperly, significant pain and injury can result.

Medical device manufacturers have serious obligations. We rely on their products to keep us healthy. When their labeling results in you getting hurt instead, our personal injury lawyers can help.


If you’ve been hurt by an improperly labeled medical device and you need a personal injury lawyer with experience in the field, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
