How to Recognize Negligence
Everyone makes mistakes, but negligence happens when something that could have been avoided causes injury to others. In other words, if your injuries only happened because of another person’s action or inaction, that person could be held responsible.
Common Forms of Negligence
Oversight comes in many forms, from ignoring traffic signals to releasing defective products into the marketplace. Some common forms of negligence include:
- Medical mistakes such as dosage and surgical errors or misdiagnoses
- Drunk, distracted, or reckless driving
- Product defects
- Poor premises maintenance
- Nursing home or care facility neglect
If you suffered pain and injury as a result of one of the above situations, or another scenario in which you think negligence played a role, an injury lawyer in the metro Philadelphia area from Cordisco & Saile LLC can review your case and pursue the responsible party on your behalf for the compensation to which you are entitled.
To qualify as negligence, your injuries do not have to be catastrophic. Do not let anyone convince you that your injuries are not severe enough to warrant legal action. Pain, whether from soft tissue injuries, broken bones, or nerve damage, can interfere with your life on a daily basis. That pain would not exist were it not for the choices made by the negligent party. Let our personal injury attorney handle your legal rights while you focus on healing from your injuries.
Proving Negligence is Proving Breach of Care
Crucial to proving negligence is demonstrating that the negligent party failed to act with a reasonable level of care. Put simply, when an individual fails to act reasonably in a given situation in order to prevent injury to others, they are guilty of breach of care; they are liable.
Doctors and caretakers have a duty to protect the health of their patients. Drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a way that will not harm others. Manufacturers have a duty to design and produce products that do not endanger consumers. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for customers and visitors. If they do not uphold their end of the bargain, filing a claim or lawsuit can hold them responsible.
At Cordisco & Saile LLC, our personal injury team will gather evidence to help demonstrate that the other party failed to act with reasonable care, resulting in your injuries. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation to review your case. Contact a member of our team today at (215) 642-2335.
You Could be Eligible for Damages
A personal injury attorney from our firm can help you seek damages to mitigate bills and compensate you for pain and suffering.
Damages awarded in a personal injury case can help with:
- Medical and insurance bills
- Lost wages due to missed work
- Changes in lifestyle
- Medical equipment
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
In addition to helping you pay your bills, compensation can provide additional support for the physical and psychological trauma of being in an accident. In some cases, a court may decide to assign additional damages to a victim. These are known as punitive damages.
While many personal injury lawsuits settle out of court—with lawyers and clients coming to an agreement—Cordisco & Saile LLC will be there to represent you during a court trial if an out-of-court settlement cannot be reached.
Our personal injury legal team can evaluate your case to determine what it is worth. We will take into account your bills, how your injuries impacted your lifestyle, what you lost financially as well as emotionally, and what you may require to support you in the future. We can then advise you on whether to accept a settlement offer from the at-fault party or proceed to trial.
