What Our Clients Say About Us

“Rear ended. Multiple joint replacement surgeries. Insurance Co stalling as 2 year time limit was approaching. Engaged Kelly Rambo Williams who came highly recommended. Within weeks there was serious progress and within surprisingly few months everything was settled. I believe Kelly's reputation alone set the tone for progress. Kelly and assistant Melany were totally helpful, answering all our questions and volunteering what we did not know to ask. They kept us informed of progress and we felt we were in good hands all the way. We would recommend Kelly and her team and her law firm to anyone who might need their special talents.”

“Mark and his staff were amazing… If I had any questions, Mark and/or Mimi would get back to me the same day and explain every step and answer all my questions. I always felt I was in good hands and could trust Mark would be fighting for me. I am relieved that my case is now done and with wonderful results. I would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone… I felt beyond supported and knew my case was with the best attorney and team possible during one of the most difficult and uncertain times of my life. I owe so much to Mark and his team (Mimi) and will never be able to give back to them what they were able to do for me.”

“I retained Mark Altemose because he is a passionate attorney with unparallel skills and exceptional results. Insurance company tried to settle for $75,000 but Mark negotiated $500,000. He is also very responsive and made sure that we understood everything pertaining to our case. When choosing a personal injury lawyer- results matter - not reviews. Therefore, if you want results, I highly recommend working with Mark Altemose.”

“From the outset, Attorney Schick was attentive and responsive to my needs, taking the time to fully understand the details of my cases and provide clear guidance on the best course of action… From the paralegals to the legal assistants, everyone I worked with was knowledgeable, friendly, and always willing to go above and beyond to help. It is no surprise that with their guidance, I was able to achieve three successful cases. I would highly recommend Attorney TJ Schick and Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo to anyone in need of legal representation.”

“Melany and Attorney Rambo-Williams were wonderful to deal with / work along side. My life felt like it was on hold for a long time but I always was kept in the loop of what was occurring and in the end was able to smile again for the first time in awhile with the outcome. I would absolutely recommend them again to anyone who needs a lawyer for a personal injury suit. Thank you both again for all you did on my behalf, it means more than you’ll ever know to my family and I”

“Both Mark & Mallory (his paralegal) were professional, courteous & prompt in correspondences. They were receptive to my needs & questions. Nothing was to much to ask. Mark is an excellent attorney. I hope I never need their services again, but it's nice to know they are there. It was a very stressful time for me. They made the process so much easier.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Common Causes of Trucking Accidents in Bethlehem?

A trucking accident can arise from many individual causes and often occurs as the result of a confluence of multiple causes. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Driver Fatigue: drivers put in too many miles or hours and wind up unable to pay attention, maybe even fall asleep at the wheel.

  • Improper maintenance of the vehicle: which often leads to steering, brake, or other system failure.

  • Overloading of freight: which leads the vehicle to become unreliable and subject to flipping.

  • Inadequate training: which leads to drivers that can’t handle the vehicle.

  • Mechanical failures: resulting from factory defects or overuse.

  • Weather conditions: poor visibility, slippery roads, tipping due to heavy wind, etc.

  • Poor road infrastructure: obstacles like cracks or potholes, which can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

  • Because commercial trucks are significantly larger and heavier than other vehicles on the road, accidents involving them can result in serious damage and severe injuries. Addressing these factors requires a thorough investigation to determine the root cause of the accident, which is crucial for seeking appropriate compensation.

    What Should I Do After Being Involved in a Trucking Accident?

    Safety first. Even if you think your injuries are not severe, seek medical attention. There may be life-threatening internal injuries. If need be, summon police and fire rescue personnel. Talk to the police, answer all their questions, and get the names and badge numbers of any officers involved.

    Make sure to document everything with pictures. Use your smartphone or a camera to get a complete photo record of the scene of the accident. If there were witnesses to the accident, try to meet them and collect their contact info. Their testimony may be crucial in obtaining a favorable judgment.

    As soon as possible, make contact with a trucking accident attorney. Acting quickly allows your attorney to preserve evidence and build the strongest case possible.

    Why Should I Consult With a Trucking Accident Attorney?

    If you think you may be entitled to compensation from the trucking company responsible for the accident due to medical bills, lost property, lost wages, or personal injury, a trucking accident attorney has the experience and specialized knowledge to guide you through the case.

    Remember, the trucking company probably won’t go down without a fight. If you want the judge to compel them to write a big check, you need to defeat their counterarguments and present everything to the court in a neat, legally sound package that conforms with the relevant laws. A trucking accident attorney can make that happen.

    How Do Truck Accidents and Auto Accidents Differ?

    First things first — the size of the vehicle. Commercial trucks are much larger than consumer automobiles, and as such they are capable of causing much more damage to both people and property.

    Additionally, whereas auto accidents are usually between two people and personal liability is at issue, with a trucking accident there may be a trucking company at fault, and commercial liability may be at issue. Different laws apply to commercial liability. Trucking companies also have different insurance policies to consider.

    The result — trucking accidents are not only serious but also more complex to win in court. It’s critical to choose an attorney who has specialized experience in trucking accident cases.

    Who Can Be Sued in a Truck Accident Case?

    The chain of liability in trucking accidents can be long and somewhat convoluted. Possible defendants in a trucking accident case might include:

  • Truck Driver: The most common defendant in a truck accident case is the driver of the truck. If their negligence, recklessness, or violation of regulations contributed to the accident, they can be held accountable.

  • Trucking Company: Often, the trucking company employing the driver can also be held responsible. If they had inadequate safety policies, pushed drivers to violate regulations, or failed to provide proper training, they might share liability.

  • Truck Owner: In cases where the truck is owned by a separate entity from the trucking company, the owner might be liable if they failed to maintain the vehicle properly, leading to mechanical failures that caused the accident.

  • Manufacturer: If a defective part of the truck, such as brakes or tires, played a role in the accident, the manufacturer of the faulty component could be held accountable.

  • Maintenance Contractors: Companies responsible for maintaining the truck might be at fault if their negligence or improper maintenance led to the accident.

  • Loading Companies: If the accident was a result of improper loading that caused the truck to be unstable or unbalanced, the company responsible for loading the cargo could be held liable.

  • Third Parties: Sometimes, other drivers or entities on the road might contribute to the accident. For example, if a car cut off the truck causing it to swerve and crash, that driver could share liability.

  • Determining the appropriate parties to sue in a truck accident case is a complex task, and it often requires thorough investigation, legal experience, and a deep understanding of the trucking industry's regulations and practices. An experienced truck accident attorney will work to identify all potentially responsible parties, build a compelling case, and seek rightful compensation for injuries, damages, and suffering.

    What Compensation Might I Be Eligible For?

    Compensation varies from case to case, with more severe accidents usually eligible for more compensation. Each award of monetary damages must be correlated to a specific reason for the liability. Examples that typically apply to trucking accident cases include:

  • Reimbursement of medical bills

  • Outlays for future medical bills

  • Reimbursement for lost wages or earnings

  • Outlays for loss of future earnings

  • Compensation for pain and suffering

  • Reimbursement for lost or damaged property

  • Punitive damages (in extreme cases)

  • Do I Need to Hire a Truck Accident Attorney?

    If you're involved in a truck accident, enlisting the help of a specialized attorney is highly advisable. The legal landscape surrounding truck accidents is intricate, and a minor oversight can significantly weaken your case.

    Facing a courtroom, especially when up against seasoned lawyers representing the other party, can be daunting. An experienced truck accident attorney offers much more than legal counsel; they serve as your emotional and strategic guide during an emotionally taxing period.

    A truck accident attorney can do much more than take over the tedious legal work that you’re not even trained to do — they can be your counselor and your advocate through a trying time. Your attorney's proficiency extends beyond routine legal tasks. They serve as your advocates, proficient in negotiation and courtroom dynamics.

    Truck accidents are subject to specific laws and insurance policies that differ from car accidents and other personal injury cases. Choose an attorney with a proven track record in truck accident cases for the best chance of success.

    What Are the Costs Involved in Filing a Lawsuit?

    Court filing fees are usually minimal, but they can vary from case to case and from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Many law firms operate on a contingency basis, meaning you won't pay them unless you win. However, this arrangement is not a given. Always clarify the fee structure with your attorney to understand your financial obligations.
