What Wrongful Death Cases Do You Handle?

The wrongful death lawyers at The Cochran Firm are experienced in a wide range of case types. A wrongful death claim can involve a massive range of circumstances, so it's crucial you find a lawyer with experience that's relevant to your particular case.

As such, your choice of wrongful death lawyer is important. An attorney with experience in certain types of case areas but not the one that's relevant to you isn't a good choice.

At The Cochran Firm, we've helped clients who have lost family members as a result of:

·         Auto accidents
·         Truck accidents
·         Medical malpractice
·         Defective products
·         Nursing home abuse
·         Bus accidents
·         Aviation accidents
Any of these accidents can cause the death of an innocent person. And when they're caused by someone else's negligence or misconduct, the families of the lost are left wondering what could have been if someone had just done the right thing.

At The Cochran Firm, our wrongful death lawyers are committed to helping family members pursue justice and compensation when loved ones have been lost as a result of negligence. We recognize that the physical, emotional and financial toll of these sudden losses are severe, and we do everything we can to help our clients in their difficult moments.


If you want an experienced wrongful death lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.

What Compensation Can I Pursue in a Personal Injury Case?

When you've suffered an injury in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, it's not greedy or unseemly to worry about money. Significant injuries come with significant medical bills, and at The Cochran Firm, our personal injury lawyers are committed to helping you handle those costs by pursuing compensation from the person who hurt you.

Every case is unique, and it's important to understand that no personal injury lawyer can promise you a specific settlement or monetary award. The unique circumstances of your case will determine what you can pursue.

However, our attorneys can usually help innocent victims like you pursue compensation for:

·         Medical expenses, past and present
·         Lost wages
·         Diminished long-term earning capacity
·         Psychological and emotional pain and suffering
·         Funeral expenses (in wrongful death cases)

Personal injury law is designed to help innocent victims afford the expensive costs associated with suffering a major injury. The law recognizes that it's not fair to demand an innocent victim of someone else's mistakes bear the entire burden for their care when that burden wouldn't even exist without the actions of another party.


If you've been hurt in an accident and want to speak to a personal injury lawyer about your claim, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.

What Should I Do After Being Hurt by a Defective Product?

When you've been hurt by a defective product, your first priority needs to be your health and well-being. Once your health situation has stabilized and a doctor gives you clearance to do so, you need to move quickly to protect your legal rights.

The injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm have decades of experience helping the innocent victims of defective products do just that. We work hard to hold the manufacturers and designers of these shoddy products responsible for the injuries they cause.

After you've been hurt by a poorly designed or manufactured product, our injury lawyers recommend you:

·         Seek medical attention immediately, either from your doctor or a nearby hospital
·         Assemble all relevant documentation. This includes documents that came with the product, purchase records and copies of medical records.
·         Speak to our injury lawyers immediately at a free consultation

Don't think that because you're speaking to a lawyer about your injury that you're being litigious or unreasonable. Companies that manufacture consumer products have obligations toward those who purchase those products, and one of the most basic is to make a safe and effective product.

When companies fail in those responsibilities, you have every right to pursue justice and compensation. Contacting our experienced injury lawyers will make that pursuit much less uncomfortable and unpleasant.

If you've been hurt by a defective product and need a skilled injury lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.

Can a Psychiatrist Commit Medical Malpractice?

The short answer to the question in the title of this post is: absolutely.

We tend to think of medical malpractice in terms of traditional medical doctors and botched surgical procedures or diagnoses. However, all medical professionals have obligations to their patients. And the medical malpractice lawyers at The Cochran Firm understand that these applies to those working in the mental health field.

Psychiatric malpractice can be difficult to prove; after all, the effects are usually psychological and emotional, not physical. However, our medical malpractice lawyers know the damage is no less real.
You have a right to expect fair and effective treatment from a mental health professional. You put your trust in them. A betrayal of that trust is unacceptable.

Forms of psychiatric malpractice include:

·         Violations of patient-doctor confidentiality
·         Sexual contact
·         Abuse of confidential information, such as for coercive purposes
·         The prescribing of harmful medication

This is obviously far from an exhaustive list. The best way to determine if you have a viable claim for psychiatric malpractice is to speak with our medical malpractice lawyers immediately and share your story.

If you've been hurt by a negligent or abusive mental health professional and need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
