WHAT KINDS OF CASES ARE HANDLED BY THE COCHRAN FIRM - DOTHAN?

Our firm is devoted to handling cases for people who have civil claims. We handle civil cases for accident victims who have suffered a personal injury or family members who have lost a loved one. In addition, we represent consumers, workers, and average citizens who have been injured by the negligence or wrongful conduct of others.

HOW CAN I AFFORD TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY?

Our civil cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. This is a fee based solely on a percentage of the money we recover for our clients. The initial consultation we have with our clients is free. If there is no financial recovery for the client, then we charge no fee. This allows our lawyers to represent individuals who might not otherwise have the money to obtain legal services.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

There are two requirements which determine if you have a personal injury claim. First, you must have suffered an injury to your person or to your property. Second, any injury you suffered must have been the result of negligence or fault of another person.
