The Cordisco & Saile LLC Legal Team Helps You Collect the Fair Compensation You Deserve
A slip and fall accident can leave you with several damages, both economic and non-economic. If you require surgery, rehabilitation, or medical care to recover from your injuries, the bills can be oppressive. If you have to miss work, you could suffer a loss of income. There are also damages that cannot be quantified so easily such as the physical and emotional pain that a severe injury can inflict.
The slip and fall lawyers at Cordisco & Saile LLC help you recover a settlement or judgment that compensates you for the full slate of damages you have incurred. These may include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Scarring and disfigurement
We conduct a thorough review of your injury, which includes itemizing every loss you have suffered. That way we can compile the evidence we need to pursue the responsible party and their insurer for the full amount.

Take These Steps After a Slip and Fall Injury in Quakertown, PA
Taking the proper steps after a slip and fall injury not only improves your chance of making a full recovery, but it also helps you have a strong case when you file a claim against the responsible party or parties.
If you are reading this now, the immediate aftermath of your injury is probably over. But no matter when it occurred, there are several essential things you should do.
Get a Medical Exam
You want to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after a slip and fall injury. Even if you do not feel seriously hurt, the peace of mind that comes with getting checked out and knowing you are okay makes the trip to the hospital or doctor's office (and paying the copay) worth it. And you might have an internal injury that you cannot see or feel. The sooner it gets addressed, the less likely it is to cause significant problems.
The second big reason to get a medical exam is to tie any injuries you may have to your slip and fall. The more time you let pass before you get checked out, the easier it is for the other side to raise the question of whether something else happened in the meantime to cause or contribute to your injuries.
No matter how long ago your injury was, if you have not had a medical exam since it happened, you should do so now before any more time passes.
File a Report
You always want to file an official report with the person in charge of the location where your injury occurred. That might be the property owner, property manager, store manager, or someone else. You should also do this as soon as possible after your injury, preferably before the accident scene has been cleaned or repaired.
Try to Document As Much As You Can
If your physical condition permits you to do so, grab your phone and take video or photos of the scene of your injury. Speak into the camera, explaining precisely what happened — memories can start to fade and become jumbled in as short as 24 hours.
If witnesses are present, see if they will provide a recorded statement of what they saw. If not, talk to them off the record and make sure to get their names and contact information.
