On behalf of Judy Albanese of Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio, LLC posted in Truck Accidents on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.
At Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio, LLC, we represent individuals who suffered injuries in truck accidents. These accidents deserve a category of their own when it comes to legal proceedings, primarily because different rules and regulations apply to commercial trucks. At our law firm, whenever we take on a new commercial vehicle accident case of this type, we implement a four-pronged legal strategy.
First, we focus on evidence preservation. As our client’s attorney, we will gather and preserve all available evidence to support our client’s damage claims, and we will take action in this regard immediately. Essential evidence in a truck accident matter could include: 1) black box information; 2) truck company records; 3) physical evidence relating to the vehicles involved, extent of injuries and location of the accident; and 4) testimony from witnesses.
Second, we will deal with the insurance companies. In some cases, plaintiffs have the right to seek compensation from their own insurance company — which might initially deny the compensation that is due. In other cases, plaintiffs have the ability to seek compensation from another party’s insurance provider. It can be difficult for a layperson to negotiate and deal with big insurance firms, which tend to be masterful at avoiding payment and/or paying a lower amount than plaintiffs are entitled to. At Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio, LLC, we know how to deal with insurance companies and we handle all communication with them on behalf of our clients.
Third, we use expert accountants, medical providers and other resources to calculate the future needs of our clients resulting from their damages and injuries. We use these calculations to seek the maximum amount of compensation our clients are entitled to.
Fourth, we prepare for litigating our clients’ cases at trial. Our firm is never shy to assert our clients’ rights in court when necessary. We are well known in New Jersey as aggressive trial attorneys who are willing to go the distance — which gives us more power during pre-litigation settlement negotiations.
Every motor vehicle accident case is different and unique, but truck accidents most certainly deserve a category of their own. As such, people injured in commercial vehicle accidents may want to utilize a personal injury attorney with truck accident litigation experience. At Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio, LLC, truck accidents are what we do.
