Motor Vehicle

Motor vehicle and carrier accident claims are common, but require specialized handling due to the array of motor vehicle laws and regulations that have been enacted by the legislature of each jurisdiction and compounded by decades of judicial interpretation.  Lack of sophistication in this area of the law often leads to overvaluing claims or failing to take advantage of available statutory defenses.

The Motor Vehicle and Motor Carrier practice group attorneys at Cipriani & Werner have litigated every variety of claim arising from motor vehicle collisions.  In doing so, C&W has created an infrastructure that allows it to bring a deep bench of experienced attorneys to efficiently litigate everything from minor claims to the catastrophic losses.  Every office in each venue in which we practice is staffed with attorneys who can immediately assess a claim, propose and implement a plan of action, and do so with a firm grasp of the intricacies of motor vehicle law in that particular jurisdiction.  C&W always focuses on securing the best result in the most efficient manner.

Our firm provides coverage opinions and litigates coverage issues arising from motor vehicle insurance policies.  We defend insurers in PIP, first-party claims and bad faith claims.  We also arbitrate and litigate third-party claims, uninsured/underinsured motorist and property damage claims, and have a track record of success in every area.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with potential new clients, communicate regarding their needs, and identify attorneys within our firm who can provide immediate, experienced and strategic legal assistance to secure the most favorable results.
