Accomplished Attorney Brings In-depth Expertise in Trucking and Commercial Vehicle Accident Claims to Fast-Growing Plaintiffs Law Firm in Ohio
Cleveland, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2014 -- Fred S. Papalardo, Jr., a highly regarded attorney with national experience in handling catastrophic accident and injury claims involving commercial trucking companies and other commercial vehicle operators, has joined Plevin & Gallucci Company, L.P.A., one of the top plaintiffs law firms in Ohio.
Papalardo has investigated, mediated, litigated, and settled many complex accident and injury claims involving tractor-trailers, commercial passenger transportation (charter buses, school buses, and taxi cabs), and medical transportation (ambulances and medical transport vans). He has extensive insight into the legal strategies used by trucking firms and commercial vehicle operators, having served as claims counsel for a commercial transportation insurance firm and as a defense attorney representing trucking clients. He has successfully tried several jury trials and bench trials in first-chair capacity and managed cases throughout the nation involving such catastrophic claims as fatalities, bus rollovers, and pedestrian strikes.
Papalardo will handle trucking accidents, motor vehicle accidents, and workers’ compensation claims for clients of Plevin & Gallucci.
Prior to joining Plevin & Gallucci, Papalardo was a litigation representative, staff injury specialist and claims attorney for a large Cleveland insurance firm. Previously, he was an associate at a Cleveland defense law firm handling cases involving commercial transportation, construction liability, real estate transactions, professional liability, employment and labor litigation, workers’ compensation, and estate and trust litigation. He has presented many continuing legal education courses.
Papalardo is a member of the Ohio Bar Association. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in Cleveland, Ohio and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. He is an alumnus of St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland.
“Fred Papalardo’s knowledge and experience allow us to offer what few firms across the country can: Counsel that knows the regulations and requirements of the trucking industry and has been on the other side, defending trucking companies,” said Frank L. Gallucci III, managing partner. “Fred will not only be able to anticipate the defense in cases involving trucking accidents, bus accidents, and other commercial vehicle accidents, but also prevent commercial vehicle operators from defeating or minimizing the claims of innocent, injured victims.”
