Civil Litigation > Commercial Motor Carrier
McConnaughhay, Duffy, Coonrod, Pope & Weaver, P.A. provides experienced legal services in defense of commercial motor carriers.
Defending claims and lawsuits filed against commercial motor carriers and their employees is more involved than defending other automobile or personal injury actions, and requires definitive knowledge of the particular administrative, regulatory and legal issues faced by commercial motor carriers and their drivers.
Our attorneys practicing in this area have defended commercial motor carriers, large and small, in many types of claims and lawsuits asserted against them, ranging from catastrophic injuries to multi-fatality wrongful death actions to soft tissue cases with alleged violations of applicable federal motor carrier safety regulations that significantly increase potential exposure.
Pre-suit investigation and assessment is an integral aspect of a successful defense or resolution of claims and suits involving commercial motor vehicles. Our lawyers have the knowledge to properly investigate and assess the many issues that arise in the aftermath of a collision involving a commercial motor vehicle, including identification and procurement of documents and records needed to assess and defend such claims, preservation of evidence, assessment of driver qualification issues, hours of service issues and vehicle inspection and maintenance issues, among others.
This knowledge of the particular issues faced by commercial motor carriers is key to honing in on the most significant liability issues early in the case to develop the most effective strategy for the resolution and/or defense of the case. Our experience in defending catastrophic and fatality (wrongful death) cases enables us to identify and address the pertinent damages issues involved.
