Cohen Medical Consulting

Cohen Medical Consulting

At Cohen Medical Consulting, our goal is to help you and your attorney understand whether the medical treatment you received was up to standard.  We also evaluate your injuries to see if  a breach of the of standard of care was responsible for the injuries which you suffered. If you believe that you were the victim of medical negligence, we will help you understand the medical issues in your case.  We are not attorneys.  We are medical doctors with over thirty years of experience in analyzing complicated medical issues and helping our clients and their attorneys  determine if they suffered medical negligence. Most typically we are contracted with through your attorney.   We analyze the medical records of the claimant, help secure expert testimony and assist in discovery, expert depositions and preparations for trial. We work to secure proper exhibits and demonstrative evidence for presentation at trial. We frequently attend the trial and help throughout the trial to prepare didactic trial jury education we help with cross examinations of the defense experts.   For example, if you had surgery and had an unexpected outcome that has caused you disability or suffering, we will evaluate your records, meet with you, and let you know whether your treatment was below the standard of care.  If you decide to pursue legal action, we will help you identify qualified attorneys and will assist those attorneys in obtaining monetary compensation.   If you feel that you were misdiagnosed and did not receive the proper care, we will assess how the doctor came to the diagnosis and whether the diagnosis was proper. We will then advise you on whether there was a deviation from the standard of care for which you may seek compensation damages.

What is the "standard of care"?  The standard of care is generally defined as the level at which the average, prudent provider in a given community would practice. It is how similarly qualified practitioners would have managed the patient's care under the same or similar circumstances. If the health care provider who evaluated and treated you did not meet this standard, you may be able to seek compensation.  It can be difficult to determine whether the standard of care was met, particularly in complicated medical situations.  For this reason, Cohen Medical Consulting, will assist you in making this determination while avoiding seeing a lawyer who does not have the required medical expertise.   Cohen Medical Consulting, is available to work with attorneys of individual clients as well as attorneys of mass injury torts and pharmaceutical torts.  The Cohen Group, PLLC, is able to analyze injuries, damages, and remedial needs of patients in all fields of medicine and pharmacology, medical devices, and medications. Severely injured clients frequently present with ongoing medical treatment and rehabilitation services. We will guide you through the medical maze to the best treatment/rehabilitation and life care planning strategies.

  • I have represented many clients with Dr. Cohen settled most of them and tried some too. At every stage of a case Dr. Cohen was right by my side, his views and assistance is invaluable and profound. In cases which other counsel have rejected he comes up with novel approaches and directions toward a successful resolution. To go to war with him at your side, is like having the best of the best soldier to enter a fox-hall and fight until you win.

    Charles Work Esq. MacDermott, Will & Emory

  • I have tried many medical and pharmaceutical negligence cases with the assistance of Dr. Cohen: Dr. Cohen is an asset in prosecution of medical scientific cases, because he is a true teacher and student of both medicine and the sciences and in addition truly understands the Court Room, the judges, juries and the art of presenting a complex case in simple terms to the legal system. He gets the best experts and helps the lawyers understand the critical medical questions. I say that the better the lawyer, the more he can benefit from Dr. Cohen’s input, which in my cases made the total difference in outcome! Dr. Cohen reviewed my cases at the outset and prevented my taking invalid cases. Once a case was signed up he produced a novel accurate scientific evaluation, helped with discovery issues and guided me through depositions, affidavits, motions and even jury selection, to sit at my side during the trial itself.”

  • “I retained Dr. Cohen from his lab in the NCI, NIH to evaluate the medical condition of the fishermen and their families who where exposed to Kepone toxicity after Allied Chemical Corporation had dumped 40 thousand pounds of this undegradeable toxin into the Chesapeake Bay water.  Within one year Dr. Cohen organized medical evaluations for 70 thousand fishermen and their families and proved the significant injuries and damages to this group. But remarkably, Dr. Cohen was able to assemble a multidisciplinary group of scientists from Marine biologists to geologists and oceanography experts to examine the consequences to the Chesapeake Bay and come up with a full program to rescue the Chesapeake Bay, a National Treasure”.
