The weeks and months after a car accident can be some of the most stressful you ever experience. In addition to the pain from your injuries, you also have to worry about things like:
- How do I pay my doctor bills and other bills if I have to miss work?
- Can I afford to repairor replace my car?
- What if my injuries reduce my earning capacity, perhaps permanently?
- How do I handle the insurance company if they deny my claim or try to pay me less than I deserve?
- How long will it take to receive compensation and how do I support myself until then?
- What if the other party argues that the accident was my fault?
- Do I need an attorney?
- Where can I find the best car accident lawyer in Philadelphia?

Our Attorneys Fight for Every Type of Compensation You Deserve.
Do you know what types of compensation you are eligible for after your car accident? It is probably more than just your medical bills. Our team investigates your accident and identifies the full value of damages for which you qualify.
We can recover both your current and your expected future medical costs. Even if the doctors predict that you will need care for the rest of your life, we will go after every dollar. This includes hospital stays, surgeries, physical therapy, rehabilitation, medication, medical devices, and more.
Many car crash victims have to miss work while recovering from their accident injuries or dealing with the related minutiae like getting their car repaired or finding a suitable replacement. We will work to recover compensation to make up for the lost income you are not getting from work during your treatment and recovery.
Reduced Earning Capacity
We will also recover damages if your injuries reduce your ability to continue in your line of work and earn a living. This applies whether your reduced earning capacity is temporary or permanent.
Vehicle Repair and Replacement
If your car is fixable, we will pursue the responsible party for the full repair bill. If it is not, we will seek the cost of an apples-to-apples replacement.
Your vehicle is not the only personal property that might have suffered damage in the accident. Perhaps you were carrying valuable jewelry, furniture, or electronic equipment at the time of your crash. No matter what damages to your personal property you endured, we will make sure the responsible party pays for its full value.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering are the most subjective of car accident damages. They are also the most complex to pursue in Pennsylvania. That is because the state has unique rules for when the insurance company does and does not have to compensate claimants for pain and suffering.
If you do not have full tort coverage, it can be difficult to get the compensation you deserve for pain and suffering. We have to prove your injuries are serious in order to win damages. This can be a highly subjective argument. The insurance company and its attorneys will pour everything they have into refuting it.
That said, we have a strong track record of winning pain and suffering damages for our clients, regardless of whether they carry full or limited tort coverage.
Do Not Speak to the Insurance Company Before Speaking to Cordisco & Saile LLC.
In the days or weeks that follow your accident, as you attempt to fulfill all the attendant responsibilities and get your life back in order, you may receive a call from the insurance company. The person on the phone will be friendly and seemingly helpful. They might even offer you a fast settlement right off the bat.
Knowing that the bills associated with your accident are going to pile up high and fast, it can be tempting to want to settle with the insurance company as quickly as possible so that you get some money in your pocket. This is not a good idea. In fact, you should not even take their call without first speaking to an attorney.
First, let's be clear: the insurance company rep, in spite of the friendly facade, is not on your side. In fact, their job is to find a way to pay you the lowest amount possible or, if possible, to deny your claim altogether. Anything you say to them is like a statement given to police after a crime—it becomes something that the insurer can twist and use against you.
Also, any settlement offered up front by the insurance company will be less than optimal and will invariably leave out many types of compensation that you deserve—in particular, pain and suffering damages.
Do not leave money on the table by dealing with the insurance company without a lawyer. Call us first and let us negotiate with them on your behalf. That way, you know you always have the upper hand.
An attorney can help you get the full compensation you deserve after a Philadelphia car accident. Your lawyer can fully investigate the cause of your crash, identify the responsible party or parties, and go after the full value of your damages. They can also act as a buffer between you and the at-fault party’s insurance company.
