A Lawyer Can Prove Negligence in Your Case
For your personal injury case to be successful, your lawyer will need to demonstrate how negligence resulted in your injuries. The American Bar Association reminds us that negligence is the failure of an individual or group to act in an appropriate or reasonable manner. Most people who are negligent are not necessarily trying to inflict harm, but rather, their carelessness can hurt others.
How your lawyer will prove negligence will rest on the details of your case. For instance, if you were injured in a slip and fall accident, your lawyer will need to provide evidence that reflects the negligence of the property’s owner. However, if you were injured in a car accident, your lawyer will need to show how the other motorist did not uphold their duty of care.
Your Lawyer Can Determine Liability for Your Losses
Determining liability in a personal injury case can be difficult, especially if there are multiple parties involved. If you are thinking about filing a claim, it could be helpful to work with a lawyer who can determine liability for you. A top injury lawyer in Pennsylvania from Cordisco & Saile LLC is available to help you. To learn more, call (215) 642-2335. We are interested in hearing about your accident and explaining how we can serve you.
Evidence That Could Help Your Personal Injury Case
Filing a claim in the aftermath of an injury does not guarantee compensation. You will need to support your allegations with various forms of evidence. Your lawyer can manage the evidence collection process on your behalf so that you can focus on your health and family.
Some pieces of information that could support your case include:
- Your medical treatment records
- Statements from your doctor
- Photos of your injuries
- Security or traffic camera footage
- Statements from third-party field consultants and eyewitnesses
- Correspondence between yourself and the liable insurance company
There are other forms of evidence that could promote the success of your case. To learn more, call Cordisco & Saile LLC today.
Compensable Damages in a Personal Injury Case
If your legal team is able to prove that another party’s negligence resulted in your injuries and related expenses, you could be entitled to compensation for a variety of damages.
Some compensable losses in your case may include:
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Past and future mental anguish
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitative care
- Lost income
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Property damage costs
No two injury cases are exactly alike. For that reason, it could be important for you to discuss your situation with a lawyer. If it is determined that you have grounds for a claim, Cordisco & Saile LLC can step in and manage your case’s obligations.
The Statute of Limitations for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Pennsylvania
42 Pa. C.S.A. § 5524(2), also known as Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations, dictates how long injured claimants have to take legal action. Under this law, you typically have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit in civil court. Failure to act within the parameters of this deadline could jeopardize the success of your case.
