Suffering an injury is a scary experience. On top of the physical injury and emotional trauma you are suffering, probably the last thing you feel like taking on is the messy business of filing a claim or lawsuit to recover compensation. A personal injury lawyer in Bristol can take this challenge off your hands, enabling you to focus on the job only you can do—healing from your accident.
Here is a list of all the things a personal injury lawyer will do while representing you in your fight for compensation:
1. They Will Go Over Your Rights
After reviewing the details of your accident, your personal injury lawyer in Bristol will sit down with you and explain your right to compensation. They will also make sure you understand any time restrictions presented by your state’s statute of limitations, as well as mitigating factors that might apply.
The injury lawyers on the legal team at Cordisco & Saile LLC will review the specifics of your case and patiently explain to your right to compensation as they pertain to Pennsylvania and New Jersey law, including the statute of limitations, which restricts the amount of time you have after your personal injury to take legal action.
2. They Will Recommend the Best Option for Your Case
There is a great deal of legalese, as well as insurance and medical terminology, that will probably make little to no sense to you. Figuring the best route through this maze of jargon, as well as all the procedures involved and their related timelines, is something that a personal injury lawyer in Bristol knows how to do. They also should be able to explain to you which is the best of multiple possible courses of action, and why they think this is the ideal choice.
At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we know that an informed client is a happy client. And happy clients make the job of representation much easier. Our injury lawyers will not only lay out our proposed strategy for your case, but also highlight the milestones and benchmarks that you can be watching for along the way. We want you to know how your case is progressing, so you need not worry about what you do not know.
Also, if you have not yet received medical treatment for your injury, we will urge you to do so we can create a stronger link between your injury and the accident. We will also strongly suggest that you not speak with the other party’s insurance company. Anything you say can and will be used against you in the insurer’s attempt to avoid a payout.
3. They Will Investigate Your Case
Although your personal injury lawyer in Bristol will obtain a copy of the accident report, they will not rely solely on this information to build your case. They will send their own investigator out to assess the scene of the accident, interview witnesses, and collect any evidence that paints a clearer picture of the defendant’s responsibility for your accident and injuries.
Cordisco & Saile LLC prides itself on conducting thorough investigations, because we know the evidence we find could make a big difference in the outcome of our clients’ settlements or verdicts.
Case Study 1
When one of our clients was hit by an armored car, our investigators discovered that the driver had received minimal training after being hired by the company only two days prior to the accident. The day after the crash, the driver was fired. This case settled for $2.47 million.
Case Study 2
In another case, our client suffered traumatic disc injuries after being rear-ended by a teen driver. Our investigation revealed that the teen had been texting while driving, as well as changing songs on her phone. This information helped us get a settlement for $1,377,000.
4. They Will Protect Your Rights
It is an unfortunate reality that an insurance company may try every trick in the book to either deny your claim, stall it, undervalue it, and so on. A personal injury lawyer in Bristol will be your buffer and your champion, being the sole communicator to the insurer regarding your case. They know how to present your damages, how to value each one, and how to insist on its validity. They will fight to get you the maximum compensation for the physical, emotional, and economic losses you experienced as a result of your accident.
The injury lawyers in Bristol at Cordisco & Saile LLC take the principle of fairness very seriously, and we will fight to the bitter end to ensure our clients do not get pushed around and stuck with a settlement that undervalues their damages.
For one client, for example, we rejected the insurance company’s offer of $85,000. Risky, yes, but we were confident in the merits of the case we had constructed. We filed a lawsuit against the defendant and presented our case to the court. When all was said and done, we obtained a verdict of $1,377,000 for our client.
