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 Easton?

Some of the common causes of trucking accidents include driver fatigue, distracted driving, inadequate training, speeding, improper maintenance, and overloaded cargo. In most cases, the impetus for most trucking accidents stems from one party’s negligence, thereby establishing that they are not merely accidents but ones of action, unintentional or otherwise.

Determining the cause of the accident is crucial in building a strong case to hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence.

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

Firstly, prioritize safety by moving to a safe location if possible, and seek medical attention for any injuries. If need be, call 911 to have police and/or fire rescue dispatched to your location. Obtain the names and badge numbers of any officers involved.

Gather essential information from the scene, such as contact details and insurance information from all parties involved, and contact information of any witnesses. Use your smartphone camera to capture a detailed record of the scene from all angles.

Keep records of all medical bills, receipts, pay stubs, doctor’s notes, photographs, letters, phone call notes, prescription bottles, and any other relevant documents, even if they seem unimportant. Next, call the professionals at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo.

How Do Truck Accidents and Auto Accidents Differ?

Truck accidents and auto accidents differ significantly due to the size and weight disparity of commercial trucks. Trucking accidents tend to cause more severe injuries and property damage due to their sheer mass. Additionally, trucking companies must adhere to federal regulations governing driver rest periods, cargo securement, and maintenance. Commercial vehicle accidents are also subject to state-level personal injury and federal-level transportation laws, both of which are rarer in passenger vehicle cases. Our attorneys understand these nuances, allowing us to build a strong case tailored to the unique factors of trucking accidents.

Who Can Be Sued in a Truck Accident Case?

In a truck accident case, several parties can potentially be sued for negligence. Here's an overview of some potential parties that might be subject to legal action:

  • Truck Driver: The driver operating the truck might be the most immediate party to be held liable. Factors such as negligence, reckless driving, or violation of traffic rules can contribute to their liability.

  • Trucking Company: Often, the trucking company that employs the driver can also be held accountable. If the company has been negligent in hiring, training, or supervising the driver, they might share in the liability.

  • Truck Owner: If the truck involved in the accident is owned by a separate entity from the trucking company, the owner could be subject to legal action if they failed to maintain the vehicle properly, leading to the accident.

  • Maintenance and Repair Contractors: If the accident is caused by a mechanical failure due to poor maintenance or repairs, the responsible maintenance or repair contractors might be liable.

  • Manufacturers: If the accident was caused by a defective truck part or component, the manufacturer of that part might be held accountable for the resulting damages.

  • Cargo Loaders: In cases where improper loading of cargo leads to an accident, the entity responsible for loading the cargo might be sued if their negligence caused the incident.

  • Government Entities: If the road conditions played a significant role in the accident, negligence on the part of government entities responsible for road maintenance might result in liability.

  • Third-Party Contractors: If the truck was being serviced or maintained by a third-party contractor, and their negligence contributed to the accident, they could be sued.

  • Other Negligent Drivers: In multi-vehicle accidents involving a truck, other drivers involved in the collision might also be sued if their actions contributed to the accident.

  • Determining liability in a truck accident case often requires a thorough investigation involving accident reconstruction experts, witness statements, and analysis of relevant documents. It's important to consult with an experienced trucking accident attorney to accurately identify the parties that can be sued and to build a strong case for compensation. Our trucking accident lawyers in Easton will review all relevant parties to determine where they are culpable.

    What Compensation Might I Be Eligible For?

    You may be eligible for economic and non-economic damages if it can be proven that a truck driver, company, or operator acted negligently, resulting in your injuries and/or damages to your possessions. Damages typically compensate and reimburse you for medical bills, future healthcare costs, lost wages, lost benefits, mental anguish, and sometimes punitive damages. However, the only way to know how much you can receive is to consult with an experienced trucking accident lawyer, like the team at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo.

    Do I Need to Hire a Truck Accident Attorney?

    If you find yourself involved in a trucking accident, securing the services of a specialized attorney is not only wise but also critical. Navigating the legal intricacies of trucking accidents requires a keen understanding of the nuances, which a general attorney might lack. Opting for an attorney with a proven track record in truck accident cases elevates your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.

    Trucking companies and their insurers often have legal teams working to minimize their liability. Our skilled trucking accident lawyers level the playing field, investigating the accident thoroughly, gathering evidence, and negotiating with these entities to secure a fair settlement or advocate for your rights in court.

    Remember that you cannot file a claim in the future if you discover that you need additional compensation for more accident-related injuries, such as medical bills associated with delayed-onset injuries. Your attorney is not just a legal representative but a dedicated ally committed to your well-being. Choose the experienced team at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo to ensure you get the most out of your claim and obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

    What Does It Cost to File a Lawsuit?

    At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we operate on a contingency fee basis for truck accident cases. This means that you do not pay any upfront fees or costs. Our fees are contingent on the outcome of your case. If we secure a settlement or verdict in your favor, our fees are a percentage of that amount. This arrangement allows you to pursue legal action without financial strain, ensuring equal access to justice.
