Common carrier cases present unique issues not always associated with motor vehicle accidents. We have a long history representing a wide range of transportation industry clients. Our client base includes a large number of carriers, ranging from those with only a few power units to those with thousands of tractor-trailers.
We have a working knowledge of cargo and load-shifting claims, hours of service issues, driver qualification allegations, mechanical failures, EMC issues and other claims unique to the transportation industry. We have put that knowledge to work successfully defending carriers in catastrophic cases (multiple deaths) and serious injuries, as well as earning defense verdicts against plaintiffs who have significant disability from accidents.
From a liability perspective, we have the resources needed to be on the scene leading the defense investigation and are frequently called upon to respond to major accidents. From a damages standpoint, we protect your interests by working with life care plan specialists, economic experts, lost profit analysts, medical practitioners and psychological experts.
