When Should I Contact a Bristol Personal Injury Lawyer?

It’s best to contact a Bristol personal injury lawyer immediately after an accident. You maximize your chances of success by involving an attorney from the start. Legal representation protects you in ways you may not even consider.

As trained and experienced attorneys, we know the ins and outs of legal claims and can stay on top of technical legal requirements. Our goal is to protect your legal rights with efficiency and reliability.

A lawyer can help your case by conducting a comprehensive investigation, gathering and preserving evidence, and promptly interviewing witnesses. Your lawyer will also manage all communications with the opposition and their insurers and prepare all necessary paperwork. 

You might assume an insurance company is trying to help you, but its main focus is its bottom line. Insurers routinely employ tactics to limit the amount they pay for claims. It’s easy to accidentally disqualify yourself from coverage by saying the wrong thing to an insurance representative. Keeping all avenues of compensation open to you is one role of your personal injury attorney.

You need to act promptly to preserve your rights to compensation. Delaying action can cause you to miss the window of time allotted by the statute of limitations. Pennsylvania’s deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit is generally two years. However, the sooner you act, the better your chances of recovering compensation since evidence can disappear and memories can fade.

Talking to a lawyer immediately can help you preserve your options under Pennsylvania or New Jersey law.

Compensation Available in a Personal Injury Case

Compensation in a personal injury case should provide reimbursement for the damages caused by the injury. This type of compensation is known as compensatory damages or actual damages.

Actual damages can encompass observable losses and expenses, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as intangible damages like emotional anguish or reduced quality of life.

In some cases, a court may also award punitive damages. These damages punish a person or organization for an extreme display of negligence. Pennsylvania has few caps on damages in personal injury cases. State law places caps on compensatory damages against the state and local governments.

Determining Liability

Liability for a personal injury claim can fall on any number of involved parties. Ultimately, liability comes down to negligence. If your attorney can prove that another party behaved negligently and your injury was the result, you can hold them responsible for the consequences.

Many injury victims fail to take action because they don’t realize the extent of the protection offered to them by the law. Liability for an injury can fall directly upon another person, or it may fall on other parties or entities.

A business owner who fails to safely maintain a property, a school that fails to ensure proper security measures, or a company that sells a defective product can all be proven negligent and, thus, held liable for the damages.

In Pennsylvania, as long as you bear 50 percent or less of the responsibility for an injury, you can recover compensation from the other party. However, the amount of compensation you are awarded will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

In general, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years, but exceptions exist depending on the details of the injury.

The legal team at Cordisco & Saile should review your case as soon as possible to ensure that you have the opportunity to seek financial compensation under Pennsylvania civil law.

While two years may seem like sufficient time for action, it goes by quickly. Personal injury cases take time to build, and we attempt to exhaust all insurance options before submitting a claim to court. For the best chance of compensation, don’t wait to contact a Bristol personal injury lawyer.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Attorney?

The cost of a personal injury lawyer is unique to every case. Legal costs depend on several factors, including the complexity and length of a case and whether it settles through negotiation or goes to court.

At Cordisco & Saile, we exclusively work with clients on a contingency basis. This means that you only pay if we win your case. We receive our payment out of the final compensation, so you never have to worry about how to pay legal fees while struggling with the physical and financial impact of an injury.
