Trucking and Transportation

Our trucking and transportation attorneys have extensive experience in defending trucking companies in complex litigation including freight and property claims, commercial litigation, regulatory compliance, labor and employment, catastrophic personal injury, accidents, property damage litigation, cargo claims, insurance coverage disputes, regulatory compliance and transactional work, workers’ compensation claims, and negotiating and drafting of independent contractor agreements. Our attorneys offer the same level of diligence to defending bus and motor coach companies, with the unique regulatory, technical and legal issues that apply. Our expertise in this field is supported by our active participation with recognized industry and legal associations such as the American Bus Association and the Bus Industry Safety Council. 

Members of our practice group are ready to respond to accident scenes on short notice in order to document and preserve critical evidence, interview witnesses, communicate with law enforcement and direct the investigation on behalf of motor carriers involved in accidents.  Our attorneys work with numerous accident investigators and reconstructionists who can be on the scene quickly. We understand the importance of maintaining relationships with transportation experts who are able to assist with scene and vehicle inspections. These experts are also available to assist us in making critical determinations on downloading and interpreting event data recording information and other electronic media.

Not only do we respond immediately when an accident occurs, our experienced attorneys understand the necessity of an aggressive defense when faced with a large loss or catastrophic claim and will use this expertise throughout the discovery process, alternative dispute resolution, or where appropriate, at trial. If a case is filed, then Setliff Law works aggressively and efficiently to defend the interests of the trucking companies so they can get back to the business of keeping America moving.
