Unique Transportation Industry Experience
For many years, we have represented major trucking and bus companies and major insurers who provide insurance coverage for the transportation industry. As a result of these years of representation, we have developed a level of expertise in transportation cases. We understand the importance and significance of log books, Qualcomm records, engine control module (ECM) science, accident reconstruction, maintenance records, FMCSR regulations, drug testing, conspicuity and the myriad of other issues unique to transportation litigation. We have access to some of the most prominent experts in the field. Members of the group belong to TIDA, ABA, DRI, and PDI and frequently lecture on transportation law topics.
Emergency Response program experience
The Firm’s Emergency Response program and protocol is battle tested and effective. The lawyers have dozens of emergency response calls under their belts. Lawyers can be reached at the 1-866-TTHLAW1 toll free number or through the lawyers’ personal numbers, which many clients already possess. We have access to some of the most prominent accident reconstruction, human factors, conspicuity, truck safety and vehicle maintenance and design experts in the field. Experience has proven that a committed and quickly deployed emergency accident response, with a high level client communication, leads to effective protection of drivers, evidence retention, risk assessment and protection of the company.
Aggressive, yet practical approach to cases
We consider it to be our job to carefully and thoughtfully analyze a case as early as possible to posture it for settlement or trial. In many cases involving fatal accidents, we have represented both the company in the civil action and the driver with regard to criminal charges arising from the accident.
