The Transportation industry faces far greater potential loss exposure than any other industry due to the propensity for catastrophic disasters, cargo liability, environmental impact, property damage and wrongful death claims. In addition to the usual employer/employee and principal/agent theories of liability, transportation cases often involve distinct allegations of negligent hiring, supervision and retention, and claims for punitive damages.

Our attorneys have experience representing almost every type of common or private carrier, including companies that carry goods and passengers by truck, trailer, bus, rail, plane, and ship; we also serve equipment manufacturers, insurers, and third-party administrators.
