Trucking and Transportation Litigation
McCumber Daniels’ trucking and transportation litigation attorneys have successfully advised and defended both intrastate and interstate commercial motor carriers in negligence cases involving personal injury and wrongful death arising out of a myriad of liability theories including negligent operation; driver fatigue; reckless driving; oversized or overloaded vehicles; improper maintenance; and negligent hiring, supervision and retention.
As a result of years of experience in litigating transportation cases, our trucking and transportation litigation attorneys have a deep understanding of the industry as well as knowledge of the regulations applicable to the industry, accident reconstruction, product defects, etc. Several insurers with whom the firm has worked have included the firm on the insurer’s emergency response team. When included as part of an insurer’s emergency response team, a McCumber Daniels’ Transportation litigation attorney is on call 24/7 to immediately travel to an accident scene to protect the interests of the insureds, preserve evidence via work product and gain control of the scene and evidence, to the extent permitted by law enforcement.
McCumber Daniels’ trucking and transportation clients include insurers of commercial vehicles and commercial fleets, ICC carriers who are self insured or have large SIRs and owner-operators under lease agreements as well as owner-operators involved in accidents while not under dispatch.
