If someone else’s negligence has injured you, you may be entitled to compensation under Pennsylvania law.

Contact Cordisco & Saile LLC to learn how we can help with your case. Call 215-642-2335 for your free case review. We don’t ask for up-front fees to begin filing your claim or lawsuit, and we do not receive payment unless we settle your case.

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are Ready To Fight Your Case

You might consider working with a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer to help you seek compensation. While you may represent yourself, a lawyer can offer comprehensive representation in your accident’s aftermath to make you whole again. As you recover, consider letting a lawyer remove your burden and take care of the following on your behalf.

Investigate and Identify the Responsible Parties

Determining who is liable for your injuries and losses could be a clear, straightforward matter. If you were rear-ended, the driver who hit you would likely be found liable. 

However, some personal injury cases are much more complex, and liability may be harder to determine. If you were injured in a workplace accident caused by a defective part or a contractor who failed to maintain the premises, your situation might be more complicated. Additionally, you could face a powerful insurance company, corporation, or government entity rather than an individual. The more resources the defendant has, the more challenging your case may prove to settle. 

At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we will conduct a thorough investigation, determine who’s responsible, and identify all available insurance coverage. We will fight for your compensation and work to hold all responsible parties accountable. We will use our deep understanding of personal injury law and our experience with these kinds of cases to seek justice for you.

Settlement Negotiations and Court Proceedings

Typically, your lawyer will work to settle your case through the insurance claims process. Many cases settle through this route. During the process, your lawyer can handle all communications and negotiations with the insurance company. You will not have to answer phone calls, respond to correspondence, or worry about saying the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster.  

If the insurance company denies your claim, alleges that you were more responsible for the accident than their client, or wants to offer you a settlement that does not reflect your true losses, a skilled trial lawyer from Cordisco & Saile LLC can take your case to court. We will ensure you’re ready for trial, prepare the most compelling case possible, and aggressively advocate for your best interests. 

Why Choose Cordisco & Saile as Your Pennsylvania Personal Injury Lawyers?

Cordisco & Saile LLC has been a leading name in Pennsylvania personal injury law for over 30 years. In that time, we’ve recovered millions of dollars for injured people throughout the commonwealth.

  • $2,900,000 for a motorcyclist who collided with a corporate box truck blocking his lane, resulting in several fractures and a traumatic brain injury with resulting cognitive and emotional impairments

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Represent

We do not think you should have to cover the costs of someone else’s mistakes or negligence. Whether you were hurt in a car accident or slipped on a poorly maintained floor, we can help you seek compensation for your losses. 

If you’re beginning to explore your options for legal representation, know that Cordisco & Saile LLC can help you with many different personal injury incidents, including the following:

Pennsylvania Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury

While every personal injury case is unique, several factors are common to personal injury claims. Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitations under 42 Pa. C.S.A. § 5524, placing a deadline on how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. A Pennsylvania personal injury attorney can ensure that your case is on track to meet any important deadlines. 

Your lawyer can also tell you about any state laws that may affect your case. For instance, Pennsylvania’s comparative fault laws may affect the value of your settlement if you were partly responsible for your injuries. In the state, you can recover your losses if your fault for the accident is not more than the party you seek compensation from. However, your compensation will be reduced in proportion to your share of the blame. 

Let a lawyer assess the details of your case to help you understand your rights to compensation.

Pennsylvania Accident Statistics

According to data from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, there were 115,938 crashes on Pennsylvania’s roads in 2022. Those crashes resulted in 1,179 fatalities and 67,012 injuries. Many of the injured were some of the most vulnerable road users, including the following:

  • 3,160 pedestrians
  • 3,148 motorcyclists
  • 801 bicyclists

The most common crash type in Pennsylvania in 2022 was a collision with a fixed object, followed by angle collisions, rear-end collisions, and sideswipes. A total of 1,293 crashes occurred in work zones, and another 8,683 were alcohol-related. 

Motor vehicle collisions aren’t the only types of accidents that can give rise to injuries. According to data from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, more than $6 billion in hospital charges accumulated across the commonwealth in 2020 was from falls, greatly exceeding the $778.3 million from injuries related to motor vehicle accidents. Other top causes of injury based on the median charge for each were firearms, suffocation, motor vehicles, fire, drowning, and machinery.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Pennsylvania law does not require you to have a lawyer to file a personal injury claim. However, it is in your best interests to work with a Pennsylvania personal injury attorney if you believe you may have grounds to file a claim. When to hire a personal injury attorney is up to you, but it’s best to have representation before you take any legal action. 

Most personal injury cases involve claims with powerful insurance companies. These companies have one priority: protecting their bottom line. When you don’t have a lawyer on your side, the insurance adjusters will attempt to take advantage of your lack of legal experience and use a variety of tactics to push you to accept less money than you deserve. They may even deny your claim altogether. These tactics can be tricky to spot without a trained legal eye, and you may end up walking away with a suboptimal settlement—or nothing at all.

A Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer from our team can greatly improve your chances of not only winning your case but also obtaining maximum compensation. We will strive to obtain a settlement or verdict reflecting the full value of your past and future losses resulting from the injury. 

But don’t just take our word for it. Our clients have praised our passionate commitment to achieving the best results for our clients. Here’s what one satisfied client had to say:

"Really grateful I was referred to Cordisco & Saile, it was a very pleasant experience. Everyone I spoke with was very nice & helpful. Especially Joann, she was very nice to talk to & always quick to get back to me & kept me up to date with everything that was going on. I also spoke with John several times, which was kind of surprising & he was also very great to talk to and seemed to actually be concerned with everything going on. Very satisfied with the service provided!"

How Much Does It Cost To Hire a PA Personal Injury Lawyer?

We understand that money is tight after suffering a personal injury. That’s why we make our services accessible to all by working on a contingency fee basis. We don’t collect any out-of-pocket fees to represent you. 

Our attorneys only get paid from the settlement or verdict we recover for you. This is often a percentage of the total compensation amount. We offer free initial consultations in which we can explain this arrangement in more detail and how it may apply to your particular case.

The Value of Your Personal Injury Case

There are many forms of compensation that you can seek after someone else’s negligence causes you injuries. In fact, it can be easy to underestimate the value of your case. 

You may wish to seek a recovery for any medical bills that resulted from your injuries, including the following:

  • Hospitalizations
  • Surgeries
  • Emergency room care
  • Visits to a doctor
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical equipment 
  • Psychological therapy
  • Future medical care costs

If you were able to seek care for your injuries through emergency visits or doctor visits, this would help you not only begin to recover from your injuries—it will also help your case. When you pursue a claim, you must show a record of your injuries to prove you were harmed and how your injuries impacted your life. 

In addition to health-related costs, you could have faced other losses that impacted your life and finances. These other forms of losses that could be recoverable include the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of activities
  • Property damage

Someone else’s negligence may have changed your life. An injury lawyer in Pennsylvania will work to establish the full value of your losses, including both financial and non-economic losses. They may seek statements from doctors or other expert witnesses to demonstrate why you deserve a settlement.
