Insurance & Coverage
We understand the insurance industry and use this knowledge to help firm clients anticipate problems and devise practical legal strategies. We are committed to defending third party lawsuits for insurance carriers, especially where self-insurance is involved. We understand the position of the insurance client as well as the insured client. Each matter is immediately and continually evaluated, as we understand the need for prompt and efficient risk management assessment. Whether the matter is simple or complex, our goal is to provide our clients with the information to enable a quick resolution or continued defense or prosecution.
We provide expertise in trucking and transportation law to clients in litigation and regulatory practice. We represent public and private transportation providers, including municipal bus lines, coach and school bus companies, fleet carriers, logistics companies and limousine businesses. Our firm has wide experience representing these companies in accident-related claims alleging personal injury, catastrophic loss and property damage, as well as statutory violations, vehicle code violations, regulatory compliance, loss transfer and environmental concerns; and in assisting clients in responding to catastrophic losses by coordinating the accident scene reconstruction and investigation.
Mounting a strong and aggressive defense at the beginning of each case is always our approach. Being aggressive and yet paying attention to litigation costs is especially important to our self-insured clients. If your company is self-insured you can and should direct which firm will defend you in a lawsuit. Understanding the unique needs of self-insured clients or clients with substantial self-insured retentions is what we do.
Construction and Labor Law (Scaffold, Worksite Accidents)
The firm has regularly represented clients involving lawsuits arising from construction accidents. These cases usually involve severe or even catastrophic injuries. Construction accidents, which are covered by New York’s Labor Law, give rise to complex litigation involving an interplay of numerous parties, contractual, insurance and statutory issues. Because each case is handled individually, our clients receive the personalized attention these cases require.
Our firm defends a variety of claims arising from the ownership, operation, maintenance and use of commercial, private and municipal premises. These cases involve anything from a simple slip/trip and fall to complex matters including building code violations and claims arising from third party criminal acts.
Results achieved early in a case by motion practice or later at trial are only worthwhile if they can be protected on appeal. Campolo, Middleton & McCormick has written and successfully argued appeals in a wide variety of cases in both State and Federal court.
