Trucking & Transportation

Trucking & Transportation


Our Trucking and Transportation attorneys represent a wide range of trucking companies and corporate clients in matters involving complex accidents resulting in serious injuries or death. These cases often involve company-owned, or leased, tractor-trailers, piggyback trailers, and sophisticated equipment, as well as cargo and corporate trucking fleets. Our attorneys are very familiar with Federal Motor Carriers Safety Regulations and monitor all changes to the enforcement and interpretation of these federal laws.

Our attorneys are adept at retaining the many types of experts these cases often require, such as reconstruction experts, economists, mechanical engineers, vocational rehabilitation experts, human factors experts, and specialized physicians. These experts aid in the pre-litigation process, leading to prompt resolution of the case matter prior to trial, whenever possible. From the initial case evaluation through trial and appeal, if necessary, our attorneys have a track record of successful results in matters involving transportation and trucking.

In addition, our attorneys are very knowledgeable about emergency response procedures and have assembled emergency response teams for multiple clients. Preserving evidence and prompt investigation of claims is important but becomes even more so in claims involving fatalities. Having a team of experts available upon short notice has proven very beneficial in the investigation of catastrophic trucking claims and can often uncover evidence that helps achieve a favorable outcome.

  • Trucking Accidents and Personal Injury Claims

  • Cargo and Disputes with Shippers
