Types of compensation you could win will depend on your kind of case
There are many different kinds of personal injury cases. Our firm has seen the following kinds of circumstances and we have familiarity with the legal questions involved:
Defective drugs or medical devices
Medical device and product manufacturers owe patients a duty of care to safety. Your doctor might not have known about the hernia mesh or pill that would cause a bad reaction. You could hold the party that produced the product responsible, though.
Drivers and vehicle operators owe everyone else on or near the road a duty of care to be as safe and attentive as possible. However, a distracted driver could have been texting behind the wheel or speeding through traffic. They could be liable for your injuries.
Slip and falls
Property owners have to keep their premises safe for visitors. A loose floorboard or uncovered wire in a walkway could have caused your broken leg. The person responsible for the hazard that harmed you might owe you damages.
Nursing home neglect
Elder individuals are often vulnerable, especially when they are in nursing homes where the staff should be protecting them from harm. Leaving residents without proper sanitation and hygiene or failing to keep residents hydrated could qualify for a lawsuit. We can help seek justice for your neglected loved one who was mistreated in their nursing home.
A doctor or medical care facility should keep their patients at the forefront of their minds. However, sometimes healthcare workers do not provide you the basic level of care they should be expected to provide.
For instance, you might have been given too little pain medication when you truly needed it and suffered as a result. Alternatively, your surgeon might have operated on the wrong body part. The hospital could owe you compensation.
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
Drivers sometimes fail to take their surroundings into account. This can result in accidents and harm to people walking or riding bicycles nearby. If you were hit by an individual, a city bus, or a commercial vehicle, your King of Prussia lawyer taking personal injury cases could help you fight for justice.
You might not be able to sue your employer if you got hurt while on the job. However, you could collect benefits from the state workers’ compensation program. We can help you file your claim or appeal a wrongly delayed or denied claim for benefits that could sustain you while you are healing from a temporary injury.
Your injury might force you to take a job that pays less than what you were earning before the accident. You might not be able to work at all. Your team will take these facts into account when we help you seek workers’ compensation benefits. You could even collect benefits that help you secure training for re-entry into the workforce after recovering from your injury.
Even if you suffered another kind of accident or injury, we could help you. For instance, tree branches left in the roadway, traffic lights that were not working, or a driver’s inability to properly respond to weather conditions could all result in injuries for you—and entitle you to seek damages.
You do not have to pay us upfront
Some firms require payment first before anything else. However, Cordisco & Saile LLC wants to work for you first, and take our payment out of any award we secure for you. You are likely under a lot of financial stress trying to balance your daily expenses and the bills the accident forced into your life.
We will do all that we can for you and your family with no out-of-pocket costs required. Because of our contingency-fee payment structure, we have been able to help many people with their legal troubles.
You can recover damages if you are partially at fault
42 Pa. C.S.A. § 7102 states that if you are determined to be partially responsible for the accident, you could walk away with a reduced level of a settlement or award. The insurance company or judge might state that an action you took made the situation worse than it could have been, even if the other party could be more at fault than you.
For instance, you might have worn non-sturdy shoes that violated your employee regulations—yet you slipped on a puddle from a leak you told your boss about months ago. Because your boss failed to fix the leak, they might be more liable for your broken leg than you are.
We will fight to seek the best possible outcome for your case and work to show that the other party was solely responsible.
