OVER $100 MILLION RECOVERED Experienced Personal Injury Attorney with offices in Queens and Long Island

When Hiring An Attorney, Experience Counts

Hiring an attorney to represent you or your family following an accident caused by another party’s negligence is the first step toward receiving full and fair compensation for the sustained injuries. Marc S. Albert has been successfully representing people injured in car accidents, truck accidents, bus accidents, slip and fall accidents, and cases of medical malpractice.   Marc Albert has been protecting the rights of people when the negligence of others has caused severe injuries or fatalities for the last 25 years.

Marc Albert has been at the forefront of some of the more notable and tragic personal injury and medical malpractice cases over the last two decades.  He represented 12 victims of the Windsor Wildcats bus crash, a devastating accident that resulted in 4 deaths, in litigation that resulted in a global settlement of $36 Million.  He was intimately involved in the NFL Concussion litigation, which was brought on behalf of former NFL players and which resulted in a global settlement approaching $1 Billion.  He represented victims of the tragic Metro-North train derailment in 2013 and the Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia in 2015.

Marc Albert Takes Personal Injury Cases of All Types and Sizes

Marc Albert has litigated several notable rape cases in New York City on behalf of his victim clients.   The media extensively covered these high-profile cases.   Marc Albert has also represented the interests of countless families who lost loved ones in wrongful death cases, ranging from motor vehicle accidents and boating accidents to medical malpractice.

We offer a free consultation to anyone who is seeking legal counsel regarding a personal injury, medical malpractice, or wrongful death case.  We have a track record of securing many substantial settlements and verdicts, including many in the millions of dollars.

Car Accidents

It is hard to overstate the importance of speaking to an attorney as soon as possible if you or a family member has recently been injured in a car accident. A prompt investigation is critical in recovering the compensation to which you may be entitled. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believe that they cannot recover compensation from a negligent driver because of New York’s no-fault insurance laws. While it is true that not every motor vehicle collision will give rise to a negligence lawsuit, people who are seriously injured, as defined by the statute, and whose medical expenses surpass the required threshold amount do have the right to file a claim in court and have their case decided by a jury. Our personal injury attorneys can assist Queens residents and other victims in New York with proving a defendant’s liability and establishing their right to damages. Some of the common bases for liability include failing to yield at an intersection, distracted driving, drunk driving, and aggressive driving behaviors like tailgating or speeding.

Truck Accidents

Since semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles like garbage trucks, dump trucks, and construction vehicles are so large and heavy compared to ordinary cars, a person driving a smaller vehicle is at a substantial disadvantage in a truck accident. As a result, injuries in these collisions tend to be especially devastating. However, victims of truck accidents may be able to sue not only the trucker but also the company that employed them under the principle of
respondeat superior. (This means that the company is responsible for an employee who was in the scope of their employment at the time of the crash.) With so much at stake, it is likely that the defendant’s insurance company will fight very hard to avoid a finding of liability. As a result, it is especially important to retain an attorney who will investigate the case from the victim’s perspective, ensure that vital evidence is preserved, and put pressure on the defendant and their insurer to offer a fair settlement.

Motorcycle Accidents

Collisions involving motorcycles tend to result in even more serious – sometimes, even fatal – injuries than accidents involving only drivers and passengers of passenger vehicles. When a rider can prove that a driver failed to act safely behind the wheel, they may be able to receive compensation for the same types of damages as those available in other motor vehicle collision cases. These may include pain and suffering, disfigurement, past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, and loss of earning capacity in the future, among other examples. A Queens personal injury attorney can help you prove negligence by a preponderance of the evidence.

Train Accidents

Train accidents, such as those involving the subway system or passenger trains such as Amtrak, can also result in serious injuries or a tragically needless death. When train operators breach a duty of care, and passengers are injured as a proximate result, a cause of action for negligence may be appropriate. In the case of trains operated by a governmental entity, there may be special considerations regarding the timely filing of a claim, in addition to compliance with the general statute of limitations for personal injury cases. Our experienced legal team has been very successful in a number of train accident cases, including a crash that killed eight people and injured dozens more.

Bus Accidents

When someone steps onto a bus, whether the vehicle is a school bus, a city bus, or a coach owned by a professional transportation company, they expect to arrive safely at their destination. Unfortunately, bus accidents are not uncommon, and some passengers may even perish due to the careless or reckless conduct of the bus driver or the company that operated the bus. People who are injured or who lose family members in a fatal bus accident may enlist a personal injury lawyer in the Queens area to help them pursue fair compensation for their injuries or for the loss of their loved one. It is vital that these cases be filed within the statute of limitations, or the case will probably be dismissed by the court on procedural grounds. In cases involving the government, there may be a separate deadline for giving formal notice to the appropriate official.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Since there are so many issues of timeliness when it comes to premises liability litigation, it is very important to talk to a slip and fall attorney as soon as possible after an accident. The accident scene needs to be investigated and photographed professionally, and statements need to be taken from any witnesses. In premises liability cases, there may be a strong temptation for a defendant to try to shift blame to the plaintiff, such as by arguing that they were distracted and not properly paying attention to their surroundings. Since New York follows the doctrine of comparative negligence, a plaintiff’s damages can be reduced in proportion to any fault attributable to them. However, a prompt, plaintiff-oriented investigation can defeat this tactic in many cases.

Construction Accidents

Construction accident cases can be very complicated in the New York City area. Some injuries at construction sites lead simply to a workers’ compensation claim, but this is not always so. Since a given worksite may have many layers of contractors, general contractors, subcontractors, and other parties involved, it is possible that a traditional negligence lawsuit or a claim brought under the New York Labor Law should be considered. While workers’ compensation claims can only provide medical treatment reimbursement, lost wages, and disability benefits in most instances, an injured person does not need to prove fault – only that the injury happened during the course and scope of their employment. Traditional personal injury or Labor Law cases require the claimant to prove negligent conduct but can result in a higher amount of monetary compensation.

Product Liability

Dangerous and defective products are all around us. When someone is hurt by a dangerous product, there are several possible theories of legal liability, depending upon the circumstances. Some of the more common legal theories that a personal injury attorney in Queens may consider pursuing include strict liability, design defects, manufacturing defects, failures to warn (or “marketing defects”), and breaches of warranty. In addition to complying with the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim, cases involving defective products may also have a statute of repose. Since it is possible for a claim to be barred by the statute of repose, which is based on the date that the product was sold or placed into commerce (rather than the date of the accident), before the running of the statute of limitations, time is especially of the essence in these types of cases.

Medical Malpractice

It is important to talk to a medical malpractice  lawyer if you or a loved one has suffered harm due to a health care provider’s deviation from the standard of care regarding patient treatment, diagnosis, anesthesia, follow-up, or other care. Medical negligence cases tend to be extremely complicated and hard-fought, since physicians and other providers do not like to admit that their careless or incompetent conduct caused serious harm or death to a person who entrusted their well-being to them. Often, these cases come down to whether the plaintiff or the defendant has a more credible expert on their side. Our Queens personal injury lawyers can help patients in New York City build a strong case for the liability of a doctor or hospital.

Wrongful Death

Families who have suffered the loss of a loved one in an accident caused by another person, a business or corporation, or a government agency have only a limited time to seek compensation for their family member’s wrongful death. New York statutory law determines the person or persons who, based on their relationship to the deceased victim, may file a wrongful death lawsuit. An experienced wrongful death attorney can guide your family through the complex task of seeking compensation for the losses associated with a loved one’s death in an accident.

PREPARATION AND DEDICATION

History has shown that more than 90% of personal injury cases settle before trial.  A settlement means that the parties, generally a victim plaintiff and an insurance company as the defendant, reach an agreement before the case proceeds to a trial with a judge and jury.  Despite the high number of settlements, one of Marc Albert meticulously prepares every case as if it will go to trial.

Many attorneys will work towards the primary objective of garnering a settlement to avoid court.  By preparing each case for trial and showing his adversary that he is ready and able to take the case to a jury verdict often has the effect of putting pressure on the defense and results in a higher offer than might be forthcoming otherwise.
