Bethlehem, PA Car Accidents
Regardless of how your car accident occurred, there is a good chance that you are owed compensation by the other driver and their insurance company. If any driver involved in the accident was negligent in any way, we can hold them liable and help you collect damages from them. Negligent behavior often involves breaking one or more traffic laws, but not always.
We have helped clients recover compensation for accidents caused by the following and more:
If an investigation of the accident shows that the other driver was exceeding the posted speed limit at the time of the crash, we can use this fact to hold them liable and extract compensation from them.
Failure to Yield the Right of Way
This may include running a red light, running a stop sign, disregarding a yield sign, or pulling out in front of another vehicle. We will investigate your accident to determine if the other driver should have yielded you the right of way.
Reckless or Careless Driving
Examples of reckless or careless driving include racing, “burning out,” weaving in and out of traffic, making dangerous passes, skidding to a stop, and more. We will look for evidence of this type of behavior when we investigate your accident.
If the other driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) above the legal limit when the crash occurred, we can use this against them to fight for damages. However, drunk driving does not require the driver to have a BAC over the limit.
If an investigation determines that alcohol-impaired their ability to drive—at any level—we can hold them accountable. Also, impaired driving can happen under the influence of any drug, not just alcohol.
With the proliferation of portable electronic devices, distracted driving accidents have soared. The Bethlehem, PA car accident lawyers at Cordisco & Saile LLC will look closely for evidence of this when we investigate your accident. We can even subpoena the other driver’s cell phone records to see if there is evidence of texting, social media use, or other engagement with a smartphone or electronic device when they should have been focusing on the road.
Shared Fault Accidents
At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we help clients recover compensation from other drivers whose negligent behavior led to accidents. Pennsylvania is a comparative negligence state, meaning each driver in an accident can collect compensation equal to the other driver’s percentage of fault. If you were partly at fault for your accident, you may not collect as much as you would having no fault at all, but we can still help you recover a substantial sum.
Also, we will work to minimize your share of the liability, thus maximizing what you are eligible to recover.
The Time Limit to File a Claim
Pennsylvania has one of the shorter statutes of limitations on car accident injury claims. From the date of your accident, you have two years to take legal action against the other driver. If you fail to do so, your claim will likely get time-barred, which means you will no longer be eligible to collect compensation no matter how strong your case is or how much evidence you have.
That is why it is important to speak with a Bethlehem, PA car accident lawyer sooner rather than later. If necessary, Cordisco & Saile LLC can file a quick lawsuit on your behalf to keep the statute from expiring.
