Over the years, the Cordisco & Saile LLC team has helped thousands of injured people with serious or life-changing injuries recover a fair settlement. Our passion and drive can help you access what you and your family need to move past this challenging event. Our personal injury lawyers in Mercer County are ready to assist you.
The benefits of a personal injury attorney
After suffering an injury, we understand the many difficulties you can face. Your financial security is important, and our team values the importance of your recovery. Our goal is to make sure you recover every dollar you might be entitled to receive.
Insurance companies will often work to protect their bottom line and not always act in your best interests. Our experience has taught us how to overcome the defensive tactics that insurers can use to delay, deny, or underpay settlements. We will review the circumstances of your case to seek compensation for:
- Current and future medical bills and rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Damaged or lost property
If another party’s negligence resulted in the tragic loss of a loved one, one of our injury attorneys in Mercer County can help you pursue compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
What does a personal injury lawyer do?
Many injured people choose to work with an injury lawyer to manage the legal process, so they can focus on recovering without the worry of complex insurance claims or lawsuits. To help our clients, the personal injury team at Cordisco & Saile LLC will:
- Investigate the cause of the accident
- Identify liable parties
- Gather evidence to build a robust case
- Work to prove that negligence caused your injury or illness
- Estimate the current and future value of your claim
- Negotiate for a fair settlement
- Manage all administration and communication with insurers
If we cannot agree on a fair settlement for your damages, we will not hesitate to take your case to court when necessary. This action is often incentive enough for insurance companies to make a fair offer and avoid expensive court costs.
Personal injury applies to a broad range of situations
Accidents can and do happen almost anywhere, so it is difficult to list every possible situation we can help you with. However, here are some of the leading causes of accidents we see in our injury cases.
After an auto accident, our Mercer County team of personal injury lawyers can help you understand your rights and clarify your legal options. An auto accident case can get confusing when it comes to deciding how to best approach your case, especially if your injuries are serious, if the other party disputes the cause of the accident, or if you feel unfairly treated by an insurance company.
Bad weather, poor road conditions, and distracted driving are all possible causes of your accident, and we’re prepared to pursue damages from responsible parties. Commuter traffic in cities like Trenton or Princeton can result in accidents on local roads and major highways alike. By thoroughly investigating the accident’s circumstances, we can get to the root of what happened and help you prove the other driver’s negligence.
Our personal injury lawyers can also help protect you against any legal claims the other party may make to blame you for the accident and deny or reduce their responsibility.
Slip and fall accidents
This type of accident can happen when a property owner does not protect your safety in locations that are accessible to the public, such as shopping malls, restaurants, and hotels. Sometimes it can be tricky to prove negligence on the part of the property owner.
A Mercer County personal injury lawyer can examine the facts of your case and help you gather the evidence needed to prove a property owner caused your injuries. We also calculate your current and projected future damages correctly, so you do not settle for an offer that is less than you deserve.
Employers must take the necessary steps to ensure their work environment is safe for employees and minimize the risk of accidents or work-related illnesses. If your employer fails to provide a safe working environment and you are injured or become ill as a result, you may be entitled to seek compensation.
The workers’ compensation program should cover your injuries, but we can assist you with any rejected claims and disputes. Another party may also be responsible for your injuries. In such a scenario, we can pursue a claim with this negligent third party.
While these are typical causes of personal injury, we also help in cases involving defective products, nursing home neglect, and medical malpractice. Our team is here to talk with you regardless of the cause.
When should I seek compensation in Mercer County?
Time matters in personal injury cases. Seeking legal advice sooner rather than later can be beneficial for several reasons:
- Ensuring that your case is filed within the strict two-year deadlines enforced by the New Jersey statute of limitations, NJ Rev. Stat. § 2A:14-2
- Allowing your lawyer to gather and preserve vital evidence to build a case
No-win, no-fee legal representation
We understand that you may have concerns about the legal costs involved with building a case and pursuing compensation. In order to best serve our clients, our personal injury lawyers in Mercer County provide their services on a contingency-fee basis. This means we finance the entire process and only take a payment when we win. We are happy to discuss with you precisely what this means and how it works.
