Trucking

Musick Peeler attorneys bring valued experience to the practice of defending motor vehicle accidents involving tractor/trailers.  We represent self-insured trucking companies, their insurers and their drivers. Our group has employed a 24-hour Accident Investigation Team for emergency response to accidents in which our clients’ vehicles are involved.  As a result, our lawyers are on call and ready at any time to visit the accident scene with expert consultants in order to ensure a careful investigation and vigorous claim defense.

Today’s trucking cases require knowledge of common law negligence, current trucking case law wrongful death and tort reform statutes, as well as expertise with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, hours of service issues, and many other facets of the trucking industry and regulatory environment.  Musick Peeler handles complex litigation in defense of trucking companies in a wide array of areas, including catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death claims, commercial litigation, freight/property claims and regulatory compliance.

Our clients include interstate trucking companies and independent contractors who are involved in transporting goods. We are select counsel for national carriers and/or transportation companies, and are approved counsel for various insurance companies who specialize in transportation cases.
