Our lawyers represent clients on a national, regional and local level in the transportation, trucking, shipping, cargo, railroad and aviation businesses. The firm’s attorneys have successfully completed over a hundred trials in the transportation field. Several of our trial lawyers are members of esteemed organizations such as the American College of Trial Lawyers and National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel.
Our lawyers defend their transportation clients in catastrophic injury, personal injury, wrongful death, and property loss claims as well as lawsuits on a local and national basis. Their experience includes handling all types of cases, from the multiple party catastrophic case that demands a seasoned trial lawyer with decades of experience to the more routine case involving smaller or moderate exposure that can be handled by a younger lawyer at lower rates.
We can assist our clients in the formation and interpretation of transportation contracts, especially where the issues include indemnification clauses, tenders of defense, insurance coverage, contract law, principal-agency, liability of brokers and shippers, and punitive damages.
The firm’s attorneys are highly skilled in assembling requisite teams of engineers, investigators and technicians. As trial attorneys, we have successfully protected the results of investigations from discovery utilizing available privileges and quickly addressing the areas of inquiry necessary to promptly evaluate an exposure following an accident.
