Personal Injury Consultations: What to Expect


Clients at Adam Leighton’s personal injury law firm in DC often come asking two questions: “Do I have a case?” and “How much money will I get?” The first question may be easier to answer, but it depends on many different factors. When you meet with attorneys like Adam Leighton in DC, they can give you an answer based on a few questions of their own:

  • Can you prove you are injured?

  • Can you prove you sustained an injury as a direct result of your accident?

  • Can you prove the other party is at fault for your injury?

A great way to answer these questions is to provide documentation: photos from your accident or injury site, hospital bills, and a police report are all extremely useful for Mr. Adam Leighton and his colleagues. It is best to come to your consultation prepared with as much information as possible, to get the most out of the meeting. The good thing with personal injury law is, these case assessments are usually free. We at Cohen & Cohen, PC offer a free case evaluation and work for our clients on a contingency basis, meaning we don’t get paid until we obtain a recovery for you. In short, you won’t be paying for asking or answering any initial questions.

Once we establish you have a case, the real work begins and we will determine how much money we can obtain for you. This answer is less cut-and-dry. When you meet with Adam Leighton, he will explain that your settlement will be based on measurable damages such as medical costs, therapy costs, lost wages, and transportation to and from various treatments. All of these costs will likely be included in calculating your award.

Also, Mr. Adam Leighton and his colleagues will examine less visible or tangible damages, described as “pain and suffering.” We all know, for instance, that a broken nose is painful, but it is hard to determine exactly how painful and how much a person should be compensated for that pain. Pain and suffering assessments become even more complex when discussing things like emotional trauma. Examples of this include depression and anxiety, and similar factors that affect one’s life. This is not something one can easily price, and will require the analysis of a skilled and knowledgeable attorney.

Rest assured, however, that Adam Leighton and his colleagues at Cohen & Cohen, PC will fight for just compensation on your behalf and work to get you everything to which you are entitled.
