It is impossible to accurately know what your personal injury claim might be worth without first investigating your case and collecting evidence that establishes a connection between your accident and your damages. Potentially recoverable damages include almost any expense or loss that occurred because of the accident or your injuries.
We recommend working with a personal injury attorney to pursue the compensation you deserve. Even if you handle the initial stages of the insurance claim on your own, it can be helpful to have an attorney review your case to ensure you are pursuing a fair settlement.
We Can Help You Understand What a Fair Settlement Value Might Look Like
Before we can put a value on your Pennsylvania or New Jersey personal injury case, we need to have a full picture of the damages you suffered because of your accident. To do this, we will need to investigate your accident. This includes collecting evidence to prove fault as well as documenting your expenses and losses.
This may require us to:
- Interview witnesses
- Obtain a copy of the police report in Pennsylvania or;
- Obtain a copy of the police report in New Jersey
- Survey the accident scene
- Obtain any available video of the accident or photos from the scene
- Work with accident reconstruction specialists, in some cases
- Obtain a copy of your relevant medical records
- Collect your receipts, bills, estimates, and other proof of expenses
Taking steps to prove your personal injury accident-related expenses and losses is a key part of building a case on your behalf. Without documenting your damages, we cannot understand how much you lost because of the accident. Until we take this step, we do not have any idea of how much your case might be worth.
If you accept a settlement offer before an attorney investigates your case, you may be settling for less than your case is worth. A personal injury lawyer can help you negotiate an equitable settlement that fairly compensates you for your injuries, losses, and other expenses.
You May Be Eligible to Recover a Wide Range of Damages
The recoverable damages in a personal injury case depend greatly on the type of losses and expenses you suffered. Some damages commonly available in a personal injury accident include:
- Medical care costs
- Ambulance transportation costs
- Prescription drugs
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering losses
We can also pursue wrongful death damages for the families of those who died in a personal injury accident in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. If your loved one passed away in a negligence accident, let us review your case and explain the damages you may be able to recover.
Cordisco & Saile LLC Can Help You Fight for the Damages You Deserve in Your Personal Injury Claim
When you hire Cordisco & Saile LLC to handle your Pennsylvania or New Jersey personal injury case, we will go to work for you immediately. After we investigate your case and collect proof of your expenses and losses, we will calculate an accurate range for a fair settlement. This will include your actual expenses and losses—economic damages—as well as your noneconomic damages like pain and suffering losses.
Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, but we know how to put an accurate value on them. By calculating the value of all your recoverable damages, we can better understand what a fair settlement will look like in your case. With this information, we can:
- Build a strong argument to show you deserve compensation in your case
- Attempt to negotiate a fair settlement agreement with the insurance company
- Take your case to court and argue that you deserve an award to cover your damages
If the liable party refuses to negotiate a fair settlement, we can reject their offers and file a personal injury lawsuit. We will then use the case we built to prove your losses to convince the court how much you deserve to recover.
