Personal Injury Accidents
Any time someone’s negligence injures an innocent victim, it may justify a personal injury lawsuit. Some common types of personal injury accidents include:
It is a fact some people would rather not face, but car accidents are incredibly common. With risk factors such as high speeds and wavering driver attention converging, car accidents have the potential to cause severe property damage and personal injury. If another driver was at fault for your car accident, they may owe you compensation.
If a doctor harms their patient through a negligence action, it may qualify as medical malpractice. Examples of this include wrong location surgeries, misdiagnosis, missed diagnosis, birth injuries, and more.
Slip and Falls
If the owner of a property leaves a hazard out, such as a puddle on the ground or uneven flooring, they could be liable for the injuries of a guest who slips, falls, and hurts themselves as a result.
Other common personal injury accidents include:
- Workplace accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Defective drugs
- Product liability
- Dog bites
- And more
If you were injured in any situation by someone else—even if it is not described on the list above—Cordisco & Saile LLC may be able to help you. An attorney from our injury law firm in Bucks County may be able to fight for your justice on your behalf and pursue any forms of compensation that you may be entitled to.

Liability in Accidents That Cause Personal Injuries
When you partner with a lawyer from the Cordisco & Saile LLC on your case, we can work to establish the liability of the at-fault parties in your accident. To do so, our injury law firm in Bucks County can gather evidence and speak to eyewitnesses, law enforcement, and any other parties present at the scene of the accident.
Some cases may make the process of establishing liability clear and straightforward. However, other incidents may involve several conflicting factors that necessitate a closer and more detailed inspection to determine liability.
Depending on your case, we may be able to collect evidence from:
- CCTV, security camera, or traffic camera footage of the accident
- Testimony from accident reconstruction experts
- Testimony from medical, occupational, or economic experts
- Your medical records
If you were involved in an accident that resulted in personal injury, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your damages. After all, personal injuries can have long-lasting effects on your health, happiness, and abilities. These consequences can also extend to your income if an injury forces you to miss work or spend weeks in a hospital bed.
Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for damages such as:
- Your medical bills, including emergency room treatment, surgery, medications, and all other accident-related medical costs
- The estimated future costs of your medical care
- Lost wages for the time you had to miss at work
- Reduced earning capability, if the accident permanently changed your ability to work
- Property damage
- Noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering or mental anguish
Cordisco & Saile LLC can also gather specific evidence of both your damages and their value when we represent you. We can present this evidence as part of your claim to the responsible party’s insurance company. If they refuse to make you a fair settlement offer, we can take your case to trial.
Understanding the Statute of Limitations in Your Case
Pennsylvania places a time limit on how long you have to sue after a personal injury accident. Per 42 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 5524, a two-year statute of limitations generally applies to personal injury and medical malpractice lawsuits. Waiting too long and allowing this time limit to expire before you take legal action could mean you are unable to recover compensation via a lawsuit.
There may be some circumstances that change the statute of limitations in your case. Call Cordisco & Saile LLC today to learn more about what deadlines apply to you.
