Orange County Personal
Injury Lawyers

Aitken * Aitken * Cohn is one of California’s most respected personal injury law firms, dedicated to providing legal counsel to anyone who has been seriously injured at the hands of another.  If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, such as a car crash, our experienced Orange County personal injury attorneys will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

We understand the profound impact a serious injury has on someone’s physical, mental, and financial health, and we want to help. If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another, contact us today to discuss your case.

Why Choose Us?

At Aitken * Aitken * Cohn, we have the experience, knowledge, and skills to help you with your personal injury needs.

  • Our personal injury law firm has more than 50 years of experience representing clients.
  • We have the resources of a large, nationally recognized firm, and offer the personal service and attention of a boutique law firm for your personal injury case.
  • Aitken * Aitken * Cohn is focused solely on our clients’ needs. We have the experience and resources to provide each case the attention it deserves.
  • Our courtroom experience means we are not intimidated by the potential of a trial. We will gladly escalate your case and personal injury lawsuit if it means you receive the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Aitken * Aitken * Cohn has decades of valuable experience successfully advising people in many types of personal injury claims, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents. If you’ve been injured in a serious motor vehicle accident such as a car accident or a truck accident, we will negotiate with insurance providers to ensure our clients receive the best possible compensation for medical expenses and property damage.
  • Premises liability accidents. Property owners have a duty of care to people who visit their premises. If visitors are injured due to a failure to uphold that duty, they may be eligible to file a claim against the owners for damages.
  • Product liability cases. Defective drugs and other products which are defective may cause severe harm to those using them. Any party involved in the manufacture or sale of these products must exercise due diligence to ensure any damages are prevented or minimized as best they can.
  • Medical malpractice. We trust medical professionals, but unfortunately, some do not exercise the care necessary to keep patients safe. Some patients end up with serious injuries in a hospital due to the negligence of another professional.
  • Wrongful death. The sudden passing away of a loved one can be heartbreaking, but if negligence was the direct cause of it, the situation is tragic. Our accident attorneys can help you pursue compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one in order to help you get the assistance necessary to move on.

We want to listen and offer solutions within our power to help.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

A personal injury claim may seem relatively straightforward, but unfortunately, that is often not the case. Many claims of this nature can quickly become complex and contentious – especially if the injuries are serious or larger corporations become involved. An attorney experienced in accident law is invaluable through the entire claims process.

  • If you are seriously injured, you may be incapacitated, have limited mobility, and may be otherwise recuperating your injuries. An Orange County injury attorney can help you take care of all of the legal legwork while you can focus on healing and recovery – instead of stressing out about the claims process and medical bills.
  • A personal injury lawyer can utilize the resources necessary to hire researchers and investigators to collect evidence beneficial to your case.
  • Insurance companies may contact you with the intent of offering a quick settlement for your case. Often, these offers are well below the amount your case is actually worth – insurance providers give lowball offers in the hopes that you’ll take the settlement and quickly resolve the case. An attorney can advise you on whether or not to accept a settlement – and if it is indeed a lowball offer, they can negotiate on your behalf to secure the maximum possible compensation for your needs.
  • If you are pursuing a claim against a large business, such as a drug manufacturer, your workplace, or even a hospital, you may have to deal with a large legal team with highly experienced professionals and seemingly unlimited resources. A skilled personal injury attorney can help you level the playing field, giving you a fighting chance through the proceedings and with the insurance company if applicable.

Ultimately, a personal injury lawyer advocates on your behalf, arguing your case for compensation in an effective manner.

client reviews

This firm is 100% reliable and trustworthy.

No question about it, this firm is 100 percent reliable and trustworthy. I felt very comfortable about continuing my case with this firm based on the first impression they gave me: professional.

Jose L.

Extremely competent and really cared about our family

The law firm provided us complete guidance and direction in our legal matter, but at the same time, they didn’t make our decisions for us. It sure was nice to have confidence in knowing we were going to be taken care of.

Andrea and Larry W.

This firm has a great reputation, even amongst other lawyers.

I was referred to by a lawyer friend and had Richard Cohn as my attorney. He was personable, compassionate and took his time explaining everything to me. His assistant was also very personable and easy to contact.
