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 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. While it is true that not every motor vehicle collision will give rise to a negligence lawsuit, people who are seriously injured 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 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 the trucker and the company that employed them. With so much at stake, the defendant’s insurance company will likely fight to avoid a finding of liability. It is 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 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 successful in several 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. Bus accidents are not uncommon, and some passengers may even perish due to the bus driver’s careless or reckless conduct 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 the loss of their loved one. These cases must be filed within the statute of limitations, or the court will dismiss the case on procedural grounds. There may be a separate deadline for giving formal notice to the appropriate official in cases involving the government.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Since there are so many timeliness issues regarding premises liability litigation, it is essential 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 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 construction sites’ injuries 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, a traditional negligence lawsuit or a claim brought under the New York Labor Law may 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 higher monetary compensation.

Product Liability

Dangerous and defective products are all around us. When a dangerous product hurts someone, there are several possible legal liability theories, 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 a doctor or hospital’s liability.

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 may file a wrongful death lawsuit based on their relationship to the deceased victim. 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.
