Car Accident Lawyer in Bristol
A car accident is a stressful occurrence. It can be costly, as well. Medical bills are never inexpensive, especially if you require emergency treatment or a hospital stay. Then, you have car repair costs or—if the crash totaled your vehicle—the expense of a replacement car. Without compensation from the responsible party or the insurance company, meeting these costs on your own can be difficult or impossible. That is why you need a personal injury attorney who is as committed as you are to getting you paid.
Come talk to the team at Cordisco & Saile LLC. We offer free consultations so we can get to know each other and make sure it is a good fit. Call 215-607-8856 today for an appointment.
What Damages Can I Receive After a Car Accident in Bristol?
Your medical bills from a car accident could include hospital stays, surgery, rehabilitation, physical therapy, medical devices like crutches or wheelchairs, disability accommodations to your home like wheelchair ramps, and prescription medication. For severe injuries, you might require long-term medical care, potentially for the rest of your life. We fight for the entire cost of your medical bills, both current and future.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity
You might have to miss work as you recover from your injury. If so, we pursue the responsible party and the insurance company for compensation to make up for your lost income. If your injuries are severe enough to reduce your capacity to work and earn a living, we seek damages to replace what you would otherwise earn.

Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering are difficult to quantify in dollar terms. Moreover, in Pennsylvania, not having full tort coverage as part of your insurance policy can make it difficult to get the compensation you deserve for the pain you have suffered as a result of your accident. The insurance company might deny you compensation for pain and suffering.

Who Can I Hold Responsible for My Compensation?
When we take your case, one of the first things we do is investigate the circumstances of your accident. We do this for several reasons—one is to identify all responsible parties. This gives us options on who to pursue damages. Even if the police report lists you as at fault, there could still be other parties who bear liability.
Drivers in Pennsylvania have a duty of care to others on the road. Violating this duty constitutes negligence and can cause a driver to be liable in an accident. Examples of negligence behind the wheel include:
- Disregarding a traffic control device or sign;
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- Driving while distracted;
- Following too closely;
- Reckless driving; and
- Drag racing.
Vehicle or Parts Manufacturers
We can pursue the manufacturer of your vehicle or one of its parts in a couple of situations. If an automotive defect caused or contributed to the accident, we can hold the manufacturer liable. For instance, if a faulty tire blew out and made you lose control of the vehicle, the tire manufacturer is liable for your damages.
The Insurance Company
Chances are, it is not the responsible party who will provide the compensation, but the insurance company. On paper, this is a good thing, as insurance companies generally have greater financial resources than the average driver. But they also do everything they can to pay as little as possible. Our team knows how to fight the insurance companies to ensure you win the most in compensation.
