A motorcycle accident in Pennsylvania can leave you bewildered and wondering what to do next. Amidst the pain and suffering, you might have many questions and concerns, such as:
- Am I liable for my injuries or damage to my bike?
- What if I cannot pay my medical costs?
- How will I pay my other bills if I have to miss work while recovering?
- I know the other driver was at fault, but how can I prove it?
- What if the insurance company calls and offers a settlement?
- Should I hire a lawyer?
- Where can I find a top motorcycle accident lawyer in Philadelphia?
Any vehicle collision can be disastrous, but a motorcycle accident in particular often has harrowing results. You simply do not have the protection of a standard vehicle when riding a motorcycle. There are no seat belts, no air bags, and not even a vehicle frame to shield you from the brunt of the impact. Your body is out in the open. As a result, the injuries from a motorcycle crash are often severe, including head trauma, spinal damage, and broken bones.
With medical bills piling up and the other party potentially denying responsibility or claiming you are liable, you need the top motorcycle accident lawyers in Philadelphia working for you. That is why you need to call Cordisco & Saile LLC following a motorcycle crash.

We Know How to Identify the Liable Party in Your Case.
Multiple factors can cause a motorcycle accident. Another driver could have caused the crash if they engaged in reckless behaviors, like speeding, drinking and driving, or ignoring traffic signals. We can hold the other driver responsible for the damages their behavior caused.
If a defective bike part caused your wreck, we can hold the manufacturer responsible. If a road hazard or visual obstruction contributed to the crash, we may be able to go after the government agency that failed to maintain the roadways in a safe manner.
Once we determine who caused your crash, we can file a claim with their insurance company.
Before Speaking With the Insurance Company, Speak to the Legal Team at Cordisco & Saile LLC.
The weeks and months following a motorcycle accident are understandably stressful. You are probably dealing with a lot of pain. If you have to miss work to recover from your injuries, you might have financial worries, too. Then there is the endless to-do list that follows any vehicle accident, which might include:
- Receiving initial medical treatment;
- Undergoing physical therapy or rehabilitation;
- Purchasing assistive devices, if the wreck impacted your mobility;
- Repairing or replacing your motorcycle;
- Securing alternative transportation;
- Keeping track of bills and receipts; and
- Missing time from work and losing out on your income.
Often times, the insurance company calls the victim shortly after the crash—sometimes within a day or two—and offers a settlement. It can be tempting to take this offer, especially when your bills are piling up and you need money. This is almost never the right decision to make.
By taking the insurance company’s initial offer and not hiring a personal injury attorney to negotiate on your behalf, you could leave thousands of dollars on the table. Generally, an insurance company offer covers your property damage and medical bills—though rarely all of them—but makes no mention of missed work, reduced earning capacity, or pain and suffering. However, you deserve damages in all of these categories.
We can make sure you get every dollar you deserve. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies and maintain the upper hand. We can start building your case today.
You Are Eligible for Many Forms of Compensation. We Fight for All of Them.
Our legal team will fight on your behalf and negotiate a fair settlement to cover all of your losses. For instance, you could receive money for all of the following and more:
- Current medical bills;
- Expected future medical bills—potentially for the rest of your life;
- Prescription drugs;
- Medical devices;
- Lost wages;
- Reduced earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Punitive damages.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you might be eligible for even more. For instance, if you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, we can pursue wrongful death damages from the responsible party or parties.
We know that every motorcycle accident is different. For that reason, we start with a thorough investigation into the circumstances of yours. This allows us to identify all responsible parties, determine what evidence we need, and decide how we will build your case.
Our Team Knows What It Takes to Build a Strong Case. Let Us Put Our Experience to Work for You.
The insurance company has a skilled legal team to protect its interests. You need one of our attorneys to look out for yours. At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we have a strong track record of helping our personal injury clients win big settlements. We can put that experience to work for you.
A good case is all about evidence, which is why we have a team trained to investigate and determine exactly what we need to prove your case—and then go out and get it. The evidence we gather on your behalf includes:
- Police reports;
- Photos and video;
- Witness statements;
- Medical records;
- Doctors’ opinions;
- Accident reconstruction testimony; and
- Testimony from other expert witnesses.
Armed with this evidence, we can file a persuasive claim for compensation. If the at-fault party’s insurer is reluctant to settle, we can use the proof we gathered to show they are liable for your damages. If they still refuse to offer fair compensation, we can take your case to court and file a lawsuit.
