Truck Accident Attorney Marc Albert Fights For Your Rights
Trucking industry insurance companies will try to place as much blame on you to lower the amount they have to pay. With comparative negligence, insurance companies only pay the percentage of the fault assigned to them. The lower the percentage of fault placed on them, the less they must pay. Marc Albert will work hard to ensure that the negligence is placed where it is deserved, so you receive the maximum compensation.
