Commercial Trucking Liability

Juries in our local venues usually subject trucking company owners, lessors and operators to higher scrutiny than they would other types of automotive defendants. Therefore, we provide thorough investigation, vigorous discovery, reliable factual evaluation and excellent legal analysis to promptly identify solutions and strategies so our clients can reach the appropriate decision when faced with the risks of trucking litigation. Often in these cases, plaintiffs can show one or more Federal Motor Carrier, or intrastate regulatory violations occurred before the loss. However, it can sometimes be demonstrated that the violation had no role in the incident, which is critical to excluding it from evidence or reducing its significance. We emphasize other causes or potential causes of the accident due to the actions of plaintiff, third parties, or Acts of God, to reduce the exposure in such cases.
