General Questions—

Get the answers to some of the most common general legal questions we receive at our law firm, answered by Chain | Cohn | Clark senior partner and veteran attorney Matthew Clark.

At Chain | Cohn | Clark, we look for four things in determining whether you have a personal injury case. First, we look for liability—whether someone caused an accident because of their negligence. Second, we check whether you suffered damages—if you were harmed in some way. Third, we consider whether the other person’s lack of care caused your injury. Last, we investigate whether you’ll be able to collect money from the at-fault party if you win the case. If these four elements are present, then you may have a personal injury case worth pursuing.

Chain | Cohn | Clark builds close relationships with clients by providing highly responsive service, legal expertise, and deep roots in the local Bakersfield community, unlike many other firms. This relational approach leads to a personalized and successful legal outcome for each client. Learn more about what makes Chain | Cohn | Clark unique.

What’s more, we have nearly 90 years of history in Bakersfield, deep roots in Kern County, and the respect of regional judges, lawyers, and insurance professionals.
