In transportation, success hinges on logistics and managing multiple variables. It goes well beyond exit ramps, loading docks, and runways — there are hundreds of variables that affect every shipment.

Legal issues in the transportation field are just as complex, addressing issues from qualifications to safety to product security and integrity. We represent a wide array of clients in transportation-related litigation, including insurers, insureds, and various self-insurance funds.

Our extensive contacts and range of experience in complementary legal fields gives us the ability to coordinate various experts and investigators that are necessary in complicated transportation issues and claims. In fact, our contacts in the medical community often provide medical opinions on plaintiffs’ medical claims. Whether dealing in liability, loss prevention, employment, or financial issues, we have the experience to advise and defend our clients competently and comprehensively.

We represent trucking, bus, and rail clients in the almost every facet of transportation law, including:

  • Contracts
  • DOT/PSC Compliance
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Driver-Employment Issues
  • Intermodal and Leasing Issues
  • Litigation
  • Loss Prevention
  • Medical Certification
  • Negligent Entrustment
  • Property or Personal Injury
