Jones, Skelton & Hochuli attorneys successfully represent transportation companies in all facets of transportation defense, including motor freight carrier lines and their insurers. These high-stakes cases often involve catastrophic injury or death, and those bringing such claims are increasingly more knowledgeable and aggressive. Training and experience are essential to mounting an effective legal defense. JSH attorneys are committed to staying current with technological advancements concerning black box technology and document retention and spoliation.
Transportation defense also requires specific knowledge of the numerous state and federal laws, including Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, transportation standards of care and accident reconstruction involving articulated commercial vehicles. Our team actively monitors legislative initiatives and recent court decisions so that we can implement the most vigorous legal defense strategies for our clients.
In addition, we are active in organizations that work to promote excellence in transportation defense, including the Trucking Insurance Defense Association (TIDA) and the USLAW Transportation Group.
