We Help You Collect Compensation for Your Car Accident Injuries
When you choose a Levittown, PA personal injury lawyer from Cordisco & Saile LLC, you get a team that is dedicated to getting you the compensation you deserve.
Here are just a few of the things we will handle if you enlist our help:
Help Navigating Pennsylvania's Car Accident Laws
Pennsylvania has complex laws governing car accidents. Without an attorney who is well-versed in these laws and knows how to navigate them, you could end up forgoing compensation that you are eligible to recover.
Most significantly, Pennsylvania is a modified comparative negligence state. You can recover compensation from the other driver even if your actions contributed to the crash, as long as you were less than 51 percent at fault for the accident. For example, an investigation finds you 40 percent at fault for the accident. You can still recover compensation. However, if you were 60 percent at fault, state laws would bar you from receiving compensation.
It is also important to note that your percentage of fault decreases your award. If you were 40 percent at fault, you would only be entitled to 60 percent of your damages.
Investigating Your Accident
Our team investigates your accident to create a detailed picture of what happened. That way, we know what course of action to pursue against the other driver and the evidence we need to build our case.
How we show the other driver was at fault depends on the type of accident in which you were involved. The following are examples of who might be at fault in specific types of collisions:
- Rear-end collisions: These often occur when the back driver is following too closely or looks away from the road. But they can also happen when the front driver makes a reckless maneuver, such as locking up their brakes for no reason.
- Head-on collisions: These occur when one or more drivers veer from their lane and into oncoming traffic. The driver who veered into oncoming traffic will be your liable party in most cases.
- Side collisions: Side or “T-bone” collisions often occur when a driver runs a red light or stop sign or when a driver fails to survey the intersection before turning. The driver who violated a traffic law is likely the liable party; however, both parties can share liability.
Whether you can recover compensation for your car accident injuries depends on the strength of the evidence backing your case. At Cordisco & Saile LLC, our job is to make sure this evidence is thorough and compelling. We track down the following documents to show the other driver's liability:
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Video surveillance
- The driver's own statements or admissions
- Cell phone records
- Accident reconstruction
- Expert witness testimony
Negotiating with the Insurance Companies
To recover money in a car accident case, you usually have to go through one or more insurance companies. Complicating the issue in Pennsylvania is that motorists can choose between two types of car insurance. The coverage you select (full tort vs. limited tort) determines the damages you are eligible to recover.
With full tort insurance, you can pursue the other driver for pain and suffering damages. Limited tort insurance confines you to recovering compensation for your actual financial losses, though in cases of serious injury you may be eligible to pursue a tort claim for pain and suffering.
The Cordisco & Saile LLC team can help you make the most out of the insurance you have. Our Levittown injury lawyers will negotiate for the best possible settlement you can recover under the law.
